Major accidents scenarios used for LUP and off-site emergency planning : importance of kinetic description

Abstract : The European States, France in particular, faced with several industrial accidents, like one of the most serious one, the AZF explosion in Toulouse (France) in 2001, which created the trauma of the stakeholders concerned by the chemical risk (industry, authorities and citizen). Learning from this experience, the French Ministry in charge of the Environment, with the help of INERIS, worked on upgrading its chemical risks knowledge and studied to improve new methods on risk assessment. In 2004, INERIS was in charge of developing a new approach to classify accidental scenarios in terms of probability, severity and response time. In this paper, INERIS proposes a prioritisation based on time of occurrence, of development of hazardous phenomena and of effects on targets. Then, INERIS shows a method enabling to integrate, as a second prioritisation criteria, the on-site and off-site response capabilities/abilities as well as the means for population protection in terms of time allowed.
