Abstract

Transporting of hazardous substance inviting a catastrophic potential, depending on the amount of transported product, its hazardous characteristics and the features of the surrounding environment. In view of the above Factors, an efficient intervention is essential to minimize the impacts from transportation hazards. This study will provide analytical techniques on estimation of hazardous risk from Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) transportation by integrating results from several risk consequences models to the latest Geographic Information System (GIS) tool. The advantage of this GIS map is that the point of accident can be moved to any location on it, hence a new result will be displayed for a new potential damage of LPG accident.
