||This article proposes a method for calculating the chemical substance transport risk index (IRTPQ) for evaluating the hazards of dangerous substances during transportation. It is based on the hazard evaluation scales of the NFPA 704 standard (standardized system for the identification of hazards due to substances for the purposes of emergency interventions) and on three additional factors: odour intensity, complications related to the planned route and the availability of help in the event of an emergency along the route. Two examples of calculations are also included.
