The assessment of hazardous materials (HazMats) transport risk assumes a fundamental importance, especially in urban areas, in order toidentify possible alternative routes and choose among these the route of minimum risk.It is necessary to appropriately integrate risk analysiswith planning and transport management to prevent a potential danger being transformed into a real event.In the present study, we introduce a new decision model, calibrating weights for each choice criterion, fordifferent stakeholders.

Abstract

The assessment of hazardous materials (HazMats) transport risk assumes a fundamental importance, especially in urban areas, in order toidentify possible alternative routes and choose among these the route of minimum risk.It is necessary to appropriately integrate risk analysiswith planning and transport management to prevent a potential danger being transformed into a real event.In the present study, we introduce a new decision model, calibrating weights for each choice criterion, fordifferent stakeholders. A comparison with the approach of a different model proposed by the author (Leonardi, 2008) is presented.
