Technological Risk Management:
The XENVIS information system
XENVIS provides an information system for hazardous installation
and hazardous chemicals stored or produced at these plants.
Hazardous Installations Data Base
Linked to the GIS, the installations multi-media data base summarizes
plant characteristics including administrative, economic, and technological
data, safety audit information, the current state of risk assessment,
and the hazardous chemicals stored, used or produced at the plant.
This list of chemicals provides the linkage to the hazardous
chemicals data base.
The hazardous chemicals data base currently includes more than
500 priority chemicals. The data base is accessible from several
other modules in the system, including a direct entry via a
data base selector and summary page.
A chemical can either be selected by name,
or from lists of chemicals, e.g., the chemicals stored at a plant.
Chemical profiles include synonyms, production data, physico-chemical
properties, toxicological data, and regulatory information.
Other modules such as the river water quality model
or the atmospheric dispersion models can automatically download
the parameters for a given chemical for their environmental
impact calculations calculations.
