Abstract

The accident data available for the case of transportation of chlorine are reviewed and discussed. A simple deterministic model for the consequences of release of chlorine is proposed for application to broad policy issues such as the avoidance of accidents with a large number of victims. Aspects of quality in risk assessment models are discussed, and the uncertainty and quality of a simple model are compared with results from traditional quantitative risk assessment models.
