These studies typically involve safety audit and Hazard Analysis (Hazid, Effects Modelling, Consequence Analysis based on MCA scenarios and suggesting risk reduction measures) of facilities having inventory of hazardous chemicals in excess of threshold quantities specified under the MSIHC Rules notified by the Government of India. HAZAN and RSA are followed by preparation of DDMP for the district covering the hazards in the facility and the area. In addition to plan preparation, the projects included imparting training to representatives of district and local level authorities, representatives of MAH units and local community. Conducting mock drills involving authorities, response agencies and local community is also an integral part of this exercise. Vulnerability & Risk Assessment of Transportation of Hazardous Chemicals on 6 select National Highway stretches of Gujarat & West Bengal for MoEF. The assignment involved collection of primary and secondary data on movement of hazardous chemicals through road tankers, calculation of vulnerability and risk on the population en-route and formulation of risk minimization plan during transportation and for the community. Preparation of Emergency Management Plan of 15 industries in line with the requirements specified under the MSIHC Rules 1989 and the Factories Act 1948

Assessment of Health Infrastructure of Rajasthan for Establishing Trauma Care Centers for Project Development Corporation of Rajasthan (PDCOR) The project involved (PDCOR). GIS based mapping of the National and State Highways, all the District Hospitals, SubDivisional Hospitals and Community Health Centers. A buffer zone of 5 Km was prepared on either side of the highways and all the DH, SDH and CHCs within the buffer zone were identified. A detailed physical survey was conducted for all the identified locations with respect to the infrastructure facilities available for treatment of road trauma victims. Gap analysis was conducted for identification of additional facilities required and based on an internally d i t ll developed l i 141 l l d logic locations were short-listed f establishing T ti h t li t d for t bli hi Trauma C Care Centers so that a center becomes available within 30 Km from any point on the highway across entire Rajasthan.
