A MODEL FOR FLOOD RISK ANALYSIS OF PESTICIDE STORAGES
Published: 28 May 2015
Abstract: The reason for writing this article is the issue with the storage of pesticides and fertilizers probably contaminated with pesticides and the frequent floods in the world in recent years and associated with the increasing consequences. The article proposes an approach for the analysis of environmental risks associated with floods of pesticide storages. The proposed approach is based on the modification of two methods of ISO 31010:2011, more specifically „Fault Tree Analysis” and "Tree of events." The first method is modified to determine the likelihood of flooding the storage from potential sources of flood. The second modified method enables with the occurrence of negatively event - flooding of the storage, to analyze possible scenarios of manifestation of the environmental risk caused by the interaction of water with the different types of pesticides stored inside.
