Abstract

In this paper, we have applied a quantitative risk assessment method to map cumulative risk levels arising from a number of hazardous installations located in Haldia, one of the industrial towns of India. The methodology consists of the following steps: frequency and consequences assessment of the select reference accident scearos; estimation of grid-level population distribution using a dasymetric interpolation approach; and finally risk estimation using both individual and societal risk metric. The risk maps were prepared in using common GIS tools and functions, and their sensitivity to various factors ascertained using uncertainty analysis techniques.
