This document is not intended to provide a discussion of hazard assessment in general nor details of HAZARD I in particular; but rather to supplement the presentation made at the meeting and provide a summary of the important assumptions and limitations of the HAZARD I system. It is impossible to provide an exhaustive discussion of these points in a summary document such as this - a full understanding will require study of the complete HAZARD I reports and the references included therein. It is hoped that this summary will provide a sufficient overview to allow an understanding of what HAZARD I can and cannot do, and the background to future enhancements.
