Protection of hazardous installations : complementary safety and security approaches

Abstract : Europe has recently faced several major industrial accidents generated by various causes. They have ledto a lot of casualties andmajor damages to the environment (Enschede 2000, Toulouse 2001, Ath 2004...). Moreover, after the 9/11th people have stressedthe influence of terrorism in the emergence of new risks. Geopolitical context has brought about risks which cannot be completely avoided. It is illustrated by many events: Sarin Attack, Anthrax Letters, USS Cole andLimbur g attacks, drinking water contamination, action on industrial sites...Regarding SEVESO establishments and similar critical infrastructures like ports and marshalling yards, these concerns are not included in the safety report required by the Authorities. In this paper, the authors establish, in the first part a brief inventory of the available methodologies and tools in order to elaborate a threat assessment. Then in the secondpar t, they formulates some suggestions to integrate security aspects in a risk assessment, to globalise prevention andresponse approach in case of chemical accident or intentional acts on chemical sites. An example of the adaptation of the ARAMIS methodology is explained in the last part.
