PRET-T: A New Generation of Risk Modeling

The Safety Engineering and Analysis Center (SEAC) – a division of A-P-T Research, Inc. – has recently completed the development of a new tool to assess the risk of transporting explosives by truck. This tool – Population Risk for Explosives Transport by Truck (PRET-T) – offers a new capacity to manage the transportation risks of explosives. It is ground breaking in that it directly compares the calculated risk of alternate transportation routes.

This presentation was shown on November 5th as part of the International System Safety Society annual conference. More information on the conference can be found here:

Further information on this tool can be obtained by contacting Melissa Emery or Katie Byers ( at the SEAC.
