Resumen Among the many methods of risk analysis/risk assessment to make effective judgments of the safety of the movement of particular cargoes, 2 tools to determine the hazard presented by a large quantity of hazardous materials are examined: the "equivalent safety concept" (ESC) (Danahy and Gathy) and the "population vulnerability model" (PMV) developed by Environ Control. Inc. ESC is a noncomputer technique that develops indexes for ship cargo hazard, vessel design, and port safety. PVM is a computer simulation of a cargo spill integrated with census data. Damage to life and property are calculated using the census data and the cargo properties to determine the number of deaths and injuries to personnel and financial loss from cargo release. The results and relative hazards calculated using these techniques are compared and analysed.
