Risk Assessment Methods for Flammable Liquids Storage Depots

Graham Marshall - Thursday, September 27, 2012

Enclosed here is a benchmark study into the outcomes of two risk assessment methods which are used by regulators in Holland and France to make risk-management decisions for land use planning in and around storage depots containing flammable liquids.

 The study will be of particular interest to any person with control over tank farms and such like.

The area where vulnerable objects are undesirable and where future vulnerable objects should be avoided is largely the same in the two risk assessments. The area where severe consequences from a potential accident have to be considered is comparable as well.
