Post‐Emergency, Multi‐Hazard Health Risk Assessment in Chemical Disasters (PEC).

An integrated multi‐hazard risk assessment toolkit will be developed and the validity of this model will be evaluated on a case study (sample area) by considering the effects on plant structures and infrastructures of hypothetic natural and manmade disasters, such as earthquake, flood or terroristic attack leading to accidental release of large amounts of toxic chemicals into the environment. Immediate and long‐term population health impacts of the toxic chemicals absorbed either individually or in combination will be determined and quantified. A risk prioritisation matrix based upon damage level attainable in the infrastructures and potential public health risks will be developed to provide strategic risk information for public health planning.
