The risk analysis assumes a fundamental importance in the transport of dangerous goods, especially in urban areas, in order to identify possible alternative path and choose among these the path of minimum risk. It is necessary to appropriately integrate risk analysis with planning and transport management to prevent that a potential danger can be transformed into a real event. However, the choice of the optimal route, where this is both in terms of economy and safety is not an easily achievable goal, which in practical applications reveals to be a major concern, considering the different stakeholders directly or indirectly involved in decision making. In the present study, a methodological approach for the characterization of the routes, to be placed behind a system of decision support (DSS) for identifying the minimum risk routes, is proposed.

Abstract

The risk analysis assumes a fundamental importance in the transport of dangerous goods, especially in urban areas, in order to identify possible alternative path and choose among these the path of minimum risk. It is necessary to appropriately integrate risk analysis with planning and transport management to prevent that a potential danger can be transformed into a real event. However, the choice of the optimal route, where this is both in terms of economy and safety is not an easily achievable goal, which in practical applications reveals to be a major concern, considering the different stakeholders directly or indirectly involved in decision making. In the present study, a methodological approach for the characterization of the routes, to be placed behind a system of decision support (DSS) for identifying the minimum risk routes, is proposed.
