The assessment of major hazards: The road transport environment for conveyance of hazardous materials in Great Britain
An overview of the road transport environment in Great Britain is presented. Basic road transport statistics are given on the road network, the weight distribution of goods vehicles on the roads and distances travelled; estimates are made for the number of heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) carrying hazardous materials. Accident information includes frequency of accidents involving HGVs generally and HGVs carrying hazardous materials, circumstances surrounding certain types of accidents and the probability of certain outcomes of accidents. Limited information is also given for comparative purposes on the road transport environment in other countries.

Modern analytical techniques in a mobile laboratory - A review of three years of experience in the control of hazardous goods transport
Moderne instrumentelle Analytik in einem mobilen Labor - Erfahrungen aus drei Jahren Praxis bei der Kontrolle von Gefahrguttransporten [in German]
On behalf of the Austrian Federal Minister for Public Economy and Transport, the Bundesprüfanstalt für Kraftfahrzeuge (Federal Control Establishment for Motor Vehicles) has developed a test trailer for testing the safety of transport of hazardous materials. It was commissioned on 29 June 1987. The controls usually take place on the grounds of the customs offices of heavily used border-crossing points and consist of a strict technical examination of the truck's condition. X-ray fluorescent analysis, GC-MS and varius chemical tests are available for the control of dangerous loads. By means of energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescent analysis, samples can be analysed without any preparation. The advantage of this method is that it combines mobility and conventional laboratory techniques.

Major hazard aspects of the transport of dangerous substances
This report identifies the most prominent sources of risk in the transport of dangerous substances and possible methods for reducing them. Initial chapters describe the scope and method of the study, and how quantified risk assessment (QRA) studies were conducted. Principles associated with risk criteria are discussed. A summary of the results of the QRA studies and the extent to which the estimated risks are judged to be tolerable on the basis of these criteria is provided. A final chapter discusses emergency planning and response. The report concludes that most of the risks examined require reduction as far as is reasonably practicable.

Major hazard aspects of the transport of dangerous substances - A study of the present situation in Great Britain
This article provides an outline of the scope and nature of a study carried out by the Advisory Committee on Dangerous Substances aimed at evaluating the risks involved in the transport of certain dangerous substances. The study was initially limited to those substances and aspects of transport considered to be the most likely to give rise to significant risks (road and rail transport of bulk toxic and flammable substances, road and rail transport of explosives, and handling of bulk quantities of non-explosive substances in ports). The risks have been sufficiently evaluated for conclusions to be drawn, in the forthcoming report, concerning the national situation.

Reliability of accident case histories concerning hazardous chemicals - An analysis of uncertainty and quality aspects
This paper attempts to analyse the differences found among sources of accident case histories and to assess the quality of both the case histories and of underlying accident reporting systems. Of the 595 transportation accidents in the data sample, 39 are described by more than one source and are used in an analysis of the reliability of the number of fatalities reported in case histories. Sixteen accidents (41%) show discrepancies between the sources. By extrapolating the results of this fatality analysis to other parameters, and supported by an analysis of selected cases, the general quality of information from accident case histories is evaluated.

Update of the "Orange Book" abstracted in CIS 90-18. These recommendations have been developed by the United Nations Committee of Experts on the Transport of Dangerous Goods in the light of technical progress, the advent of new substances and materials, the exigences of modern transport systems, and the requirement to ensure the safety of people, property and the environment. They are addressed to governments and international organisations concerned with the regulation of the transport of dangerous goods. Among other aspects, the recommendations cover principles of classification and definition of classes, listing of the principal dangerous goods, general packing requirements, testing procedures, marking, labelling or placarding, and shipping documents. In addition, there are special recommendations related to particular classes of goods. The recommendations do not apply to dangerous goods in bulk, which, in most countries, are subject to special regulations.

The social psychological impacts of a technological accident - Collective stress and perceived health risks
An evaluation of the impact of a major train derailment and toxic spill in a rural community in the USA. In order to assess the nature, direction and magnitude of this impact, a disaster impact assessment design was developed and data were collected 20 months after the accident. Victims closer to the impact site, members of families separated during evacuation experienced the most collective stress and manifested strongest concerns about risks to their health. The data confirm that technological accidents have identifiable long-term negative psychological impacts on communities.

Non-palletised building blocks packed in flat steel straps. Assessment of the Rebichon-Signode process
Paquets de parpaings cerclés sans palette - Evaluation du procédé Rebichon-Signode [in French]
Building blocks are packed today in flat steel strapping in order to provide users with an alternative to the traditional loading on pallets for transport, handling and storage. After multiple handling, however, blocks packed in this way have been found to work loose and create an accident risk. The INRS therefore undertook a study of the Rebichon-Signode process, which is described in this paper: the process; testing; tensile tests on strapping; transport and handling tests on packs reconstituted in the laboratory and on packs under real field conditions; discussion of the validity and stringency of the tests; interpretation of the results; comparison of the behaviour of palletised and strap-wrapped blocks; recommendations regarding strapping and handling of packs. The Rebichon-Signode process can be further improved, at no extra cost, by strapping the third layer of blocks from the bottom, which enables the volume of the pack to be increased by one third.

Regulation of hazardous waste transportation: Federal, State, Local, or all of the above
Administrative rulings (inconsistency rulings) and judicial determinations of preemption of state and local government regulations concerning the transportation of hazardous materials by US federal regulations were analysed. Transportation of both radioactive substances and other hazardous materials are considered. The methodology utilised was analysis on an issue-by-issue basis. Background on federal regulations and the criteria used for preemption decisions are presented. Considerations relevant to federal entities, including the DoE, DoD, state and local governmental entities, and transporters of hazardous materials are discussed. It is concluded that the Congress has failed to make a sufficient effort to resolve interjurisdictional differences.
