Background & objectives: Tables from European and American companies are used in risk assessment by traditional FMEA studies. Considering  differences in health, safety and environment levels, it is nessessary to design country spesific tables to meet  real features of the workplaces. This study aimed to establish modified tables, do risk assessment, and finally  calculate insurance rate to remaining risks.
Method:Equipment failures and human accidents data were collected from PM and HSE department of the cement factory and entered to EXCEL 2010 software to design modified tables.  Mechanical and electrical failures were filtered and the calulations were done as the number of failes per a day and their duration per hour. Then, both direct and indirect cost of occupational accidents were calculated by the software. Finally, modified insurance tables of FMEA were designed based on the costs recorded in HARP unit of the factory and human accidents costs.
Results: In present study 183 risks were identified in crusher unit and recorded in FMEA worksheets which were reduced to 39 unacceptable risks after implementing corrective measures. Using insurance table of FMEA, 10.640 billion Rial was obtaned as insurance costs for remaining risks of crusher equipments which is considerable comparing to 10.750 billion Rials calculated by insurance company.
Conclusion: This study showed that modified version of  FMEA tables as a new method can be used to calculate cost of related risks.
Keywords: Cement, FMEA, Insurance, Risk Assessment.
