Quantification of the effectivity of self-rescue enhancing measures for accidents with hazardous materials, phase 2

Quantification of the effectivity of self-rescue enhancing measures for accidents with hazardous materials, phase 2

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Storage and transport of hazardous materials impose risks to surrounding population and structures, both in the urban environment as at (petro-) chemical facilities. Justificaton of the societal risk is an important part of the Dutch regulatory requirements regarding external safety.
This present report is related to phase 2 of the project, in which – using the sublethal injury models from phase 1 – the authors aim to develop calculation models allowing the determination of the expected gain in safety due to self-rescue enhancing measures. This gain is expressed as a reduction of injuries (numbers and/or severity) compared to the same scenario in which those measures were not taken.
