Battelle, Pacific Northwest Laboratories, is currently conducting a research program sponsored by the Energy Research and Development Administration to assess the risk of transporting energy materials. The risk assessment model, although originally developed for use in analyzing shipments of radioactive materials, can be used to evaluate the risk of shipping any hazardous material. This paper briefly reviews the risk assessment method and describes how it can be used to solve hazardous materials shipping problems. /Author/
