GENERAL DIAGRAM OF THE PROGNOSIS OF THE LEVEL OF THE POTENTIAL ACCIDENT HAZARD

The general diagram of the potential accident hazard linked to the objects of storage of warfare chemical agents is shown in Fig. 1. According to the diagram, the analysis includes:

· a determination of the conditions under which the source of the toxic hazard appears and a determination of the characteristics of the source;

· a prognosis of time-space characteristics of contamination of the abiotic medium;

· a prognosis of the frequency of the origin of accident situations;

· and a calculation of risk assessments as characteristics of the potential hazard.
