The paper discusses the process of hazards analysis and the basic building blocks of systems used for data storage, retrieval, correlation, and analysis, to better inform people choosing and/or evaluating the systems. The remainder of the paper discusses: (1) the process of hazards analysis, including the three basic steps of hazard identification, vulnerability analysis, and risk analysis, performed in two phases--screening and planning; and (2) three basic building blocks of these computer systems--database management, mathematical capabilities, and graphical capabilities. All discussion relates to the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-know Act of 1986 (Title III of the Superfund Amendment and Reauthorization Act--SARA) and its application to facilities handling designated chemicals in excess of specified quantities.
