Technological Risk Management
GRIBS: A Technological Risk Information System
Sponsor: Kontrollstelle fuer Chemiesicherheit,
Gift, und Umwelt
Duration: 1995 - 1996
The project continues the development of an information system for
hazardous substances and chemical risk management and communication for
the City and Kanton of Basel.
The system integrates data bases on enterprises and hazardous chemicals
with a local, city scale GIS and offers numerous access, sorting
and display mechanisms for risk information, assessment results,
and public risk communication.
The current phase will include an interface to the PHAST dispersion model
for accident simulation, the inclusion of biotechnological sources of
risk, and several new reporting functions.
The project includes, in a parallel contract, a long-term maintenance and
support agreement for the information system.
