Technological Risk Management

GRIBS: A Technological Risk Information System

Sponsor: Kontrollstelle fuer Chemiesicherheit,
Gift, und Umwelt
Country: Switzerland
Duration: 1995 - 1996

The project continues the development of an information system for hazardous substances and chemical risk management and communication for the City and Kanton of Basel.

The system integrates data bases on enterprises and hazardous chemicals with a local, city scale GIS and offers numerous access, sorting and display mechanisms for risk information, assessment results, and public risk communication. The current phase will include an interface to the PHAST dispersion model for accident simulation, the inclusion of biotechnological sources of risk, and several new reporting functions.

The project includes, in a parallel contract, a long-term maintenance and support agreement for the information system.
