This is the only book available that shows safety engineers and risk managers how to use risk analysis to reduce the likelihood and severity of accidents during transport of hazardous materials. It first familiarizes readers with the basic methodology for transportation quantitative risk analysis, then goes on to cover various detailed methods for frequency and consequence analysis, and quantifies risk reduction achieved by container design modification. The guide uses a single numerical example throughout to demonstrate how to best apply specific analytical techniques to various transportation options and develops a fault tree that can be used for almost every transport analysis. Results are developed for both individual and societal risks.
