Description : Leon N. Moses In June 1991, the Transportation Center at Northwestern University sponsored Hazmat Transport '91: A National Conference on the Transportation of Hazardous Materials and Wastes. The faculty associated with the center were aware that there had been many professional, industrial and government conferences and meetings on the subject. However, they believed that the unique capacity of the Transportation Center to bring together leaders from industry and government, as well as leading scholars from economics, law, engineering, psychology and sociology who have done research on the problems associated with the transportation of hazardous materials and wastes (hazmats), could produce a set of integrated insights and understandings that would go well beyond those of previous conferences. The papers that make up this volume were all delivered at Hazmat Transport '91. From a legislative point of view, they tend to deal with issues associated with the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act of 1975 (HMTA), the original act passed to regulate the transportation of hazardous materials, and the Hazardous Materials Transportation Uniform Safety Act of 1990 (HMTVSA). There were talks and papers presented at the conference that focused on other recent legislation and transportation issues with which HMTUSA does not deal. The conference proceedings volume also had discussions and papers on significant managerial and regulatory issues that could not be included in this volume because of constraints on its size. Therefore, this essay is made up of three parts.

Description : This book has been written as a guidebook to understanding and applying the Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazard Materials Regulations (HMR) to the shipment and handling of regulated hazardous materials. The intent is to provide a general reference that can be used by industry managers to provide training on hazard awareness and to assist in job specific training of employees involved in regulated hazardous materials and articles transportation. DOT specifies that all employees involved in the preparation, handling, and transportation of hazardous materials and hazardous wastes be trained in the regulations. This is designed to increase safety awareness and to improve emergency preparedness for responding to transportation incidents.

Description : "Effective January 1, 1991, both international and domestic hazardous materials must be transported according to the shipment required by the United Nation Recommendations (UN Recommendations). This mandate to follow the UN Recommendations has caused a lot of confusions for packers, shippers and shipping agents. Due to the confusion surrounding the use of this document, this thesis provides a basic guideline and complete instructions on how to handle hazardous materials smartly and safely. Not understanding the regulations involved in hazardous material movement could result in much confusion in dealing with these type of materials. These analysis will clarify such areas as the responsibility of the shipper, shipping requirement, bills of lading regulations, terminology, and container constructions, which can help them in safe and effective handling of hazardous materials during transportation. This thesis is divided into two sections: Section 1 deals with material classification, packaging marking, labeling, loading, paper work etc. Section 2 is the analysis of standard regulations of American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) and US Department of Transportation (DOT) which developed a new test method, materials and construction specifications for packagings as well as miscellaneous information on hazardous material packaging."--Abstract.

Description : This report presents a summary of the 1981 Williamsburg Conference which developed recommendations for a comprehensive national strategy to provide safe and efficient transportation of hazardous materials and wastes in the 1980's. The conference covered regulation, training, emergency response, legal responsibilities and implications, technological needs and limitations, and risk assessment. The public interest was a prime concern in all the discussions. Vol. 1 describes TRB's role, gives an overview of the problem, and discusses in detail the findings and recommendations that were developed by the TRB Steering Committee. Vol. 2 covers resource papers, reports of rapporteurs and appendixes.

Description : How can we predict and control risks related to the transportation of hazardous substances? This book explains what a transportation quantitative risk analysis is, how to communicate risk study objectives to an experienced risk analyst, and how to do a reasonably detailed calculation based on available risk data. The author explains the quantitative risk analysis (QRA) procedure and its application to transportation. He familiarizes readers with sources of data specific to accident rate, probabilistic distribution of accident force magnitude, and conditional probability of container failure. Risk analysis methodologies and data uncertainties are also clearly explained. A special feature of the book is an extended example of a quantitative risk analysis for bulk transport of chlorine by truck and train. This detailed example explores every step of the QRA from preliminary hazards analysis to risk reduction alternatives. This example can be adapted to many practical situations. Methodologies are provided for accident scenario development, frequency and consequence analysis, and risk presentation. The book has in-depth discussions of Definitions of basic risk analysis terms Mathematical formulations for transportation quantitative risk analysis Databases for accident rate and frequency, accident force types and magnitudes, container failure probability, and release amounts Engineering models for container failure analysis Quantification of the risk reduction of modifying container design A generalized fault tree that can be easily modified for different types of transportation risk analysis The discussion of consequence analysis delves into release rates and amounts, airborne dispersion, toxic material effects, exposed populations, and exposure mitigation measures. Analysis results for both individual and societal risks are discussed. Appendices cover numerical evaluation of train and truck accident scenario frequencies and source term characterization. Hazardous Materials Transportation Risk Analysis will be a valuable reference for supervisors and managers who ship, receive, or transport hazardous materials: state, federal, and local transportation officials; transportation packaging engineers; and others, such as emergency planners and environmental analysts, who have reason to understand transportation risk.
