Abstract

In this paper an extensive quantitative risk assessment as applied to the land transport of dangerous goods in Sicily is outlined. A complete inventory of dangerous substances was the basis for this complete risk analysis. From both the individual risk distribution and societal risk curves the importance of parameters has been obtained and this has suggested measures to reduce the risk in Sicily. Calculations has been made with the TRAT software code (implemented on a GIS platform) which has been developed to evaluate the risk to human health and to the environment due to the transportation of dangerous goods.
