Title Measurement of environmental hazards
Original title La medida del riesgo ambiental [in Spanish]
Bibliographic information 3rd Quarter 2007, Vol.27, No.107, p.50-63. Illus. 9 ref.
Abstract This article describes a new method for evaluating the effects of enterprise activities on the natural environment. It includes an evaluation of the risks of environmental hazards using environmental factors (toxicity, volatility, bio-concentration, adsorption, biodegradability, synergies). This analysis, together with the use of various scenarios, enables the determination of the two main constituents of environmental hazards, namely environmental consequences and the probability of occurrence of accidents.
