The Finnish Rescue Services have undergone some major changes in the recent past. Subsequently, there was a need to develop a new risk assessing method for major risks. During the years 2004 - 2005, VTT, in cooperation with the Interior Ministry and the Finnish Rescue Services, developed a new risk assessment method for major risks. The work resulted in the development of an Excel-based risk assessment program which is designed to help the Rescue Services recognise and evaluate major risks. The program includes 22 types of accidents and each of these consists of 3 - 5 different risk objects. The risk assessment is stepwise, and involves risk identification, the assessment of their frequency, and finally the evaluation of the different consequences (personal, environmental and property).
