There is a 50%-80% chance that all sophisticated, safety-related control systems will fail in the year 2000, damning research from the Health and Safety Executive has revealed. The report, Safety and the year 2000, found that even the most simple safety systems have a 5% chance of failing because of the millennium.
Systems most at risk include those which control the sensors that detect fire or gas leaks in big production plants. Many engineering and manufacturing companies depend on these systems, and whole processes may be at risk, the report warned.
