Hazard Assessment/Decision Making: Collection of Relevant Information:

  • Roger Kantin
Conference paper


In the case of an accident involving the spillage of dangerous substances at sea, the “collection of relevant information” is a fundamental step in bringing to a successful conclusion the reflections which will lead to the final decision-making.

This paper explains what kind of information should be sought, and how to do so. It gives a series of recommendations concerning the documentation currently available, computerised or not. It also proposes documentary research procedures which should lead to the required objectives: sound knowledge of product behaviour, the most accurate assessment possible of the hazard, and recommendations concerning methods and means of intervention.

The addresses and telephone numbers whereby the reader can obtain this specialised documentation are also given.
