‘The Identification of Hazardous Industrial Sites in Publicly-Available UK Disaster Risk Assessments’

A new paper from the Emergency Planning College looks at the creation and publication of disaster risk assessments.

Written by Mark Leigh, director of the Faculty of Civil Protection, at the Emergency Planning College this is the eighth document in the EPC's Occasional Papers Series.

‘The Identification of Hazardous Industrial Sites in Publicly-Available UK Disaster Risk Assessments’ argues that the locations and identities of site-specific risks should, in principle, be given in the UK’s Community Risk Registers. It examines the arguments for and against, before effectively proving that this information is so easily obtainable from other public sources that local policies of withholding it from Community Risk Registers are at least open to challenge. There should be a serious debate about this among those responsible for civil protection risk registers, and this paper seeks to inform it.
