Study land transport accident statistics for use in Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA)
This datasheet provides information on land transport accident statistics for use in Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA). The datasheet includes guidelines for the use of the recommended data and a review of the sources of the data. Most of the data concern motor vehicles and rail transport, although some data for cyclists are also presented. Data excludes pedestrians; if this is needed local data will need to be examined. The data in this sheet are intended for two main uses: • Assessing the risk of transporting personnel; data relating to the frequency of fatalities and serious injuries to road and rail users are presented. • Assessing the risks of transporting Dangerous Goods (DG); data on the frequency of releases of hazardous materials from rail and road tankers are presented.
