Abstract


This article brings up important safety issues pertaining to the transportation of hazardous goods: estimating risk and modeling human factors as the main cause of road accidents. For the purposes of this article, the concept of risk assessment has been depicted in a general manner while the “band” model, which takes human, technical and road factors into account, has been depicted in detail. The band model was implemented in calculation of accident probability in the transportation of hazardous goods. Heuristic techniques or, more precisely, fuzzy set techniques were used in the modeling of human factors. The model was conceived based on the bibliography of the subject matter and personally conducted survey and expert research.
