LPG LAND TRANSPORTATION AND STORAGE SAFETY. FINAL REPORT
This report contains an analytical examination of fatal accidents involving liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) releases during transportation and/or transportation related storage. Principal emphasis was on accidents during the nine-year period 1971 to 1979. Fatalities to members of the general public (i.e., those at the scene of the accident through coincidence or curiosity) were of special interest. Transportation accidents involving railroad tank cars, trucks, and pipelines were exam-more comprehensive and responsive financial planning. At the same time, new tools arer appearing daily in the form of microcomputer-based software which has the potential, for a modest price, to help the manager analyze alternative responses to these economic crises. This report is intended to assist transit managers in determining the applicability of these commercially available microcomputer products to their need to analyze the effects of changes in fare and service policy, labor contracts and revenue sources.
