Abstract (Swedish)
A cost benefit analysis has been performed on the installation of stove guards or portable sprinkler systems as a means for reducing injuries in the case of a residential fire. The installations are analyzed separately and the benefit ratio is below 1.0 in most cases, indicating a low benefit in relation to the installation and maintenance costs. However, the benefit ratio is well above 1.0 for certain groups in the society, i.e. elderly smokers. The stove guard installation does not have a benefit ratio above 1.0 for the public in general. But there may be a societal benefit for the elderly having a stove guard but further analysis in needed as the statistical information in injuries caused by fire is subjected to a large uncertainty.
