Background and aims: Transportation of hazardous chemicals is one of the main phases in chemical life cycle which could endanger the safety of people and facilities that are located in the tanker traffic roads. The aim of this study was to assess risk of chemical transportation in the pass leading to  to Amirkabir terminal in Shiraz city.

Methods: In this cross sectional study, risks of chemical transportation in all routes leading to Amirkabir terminal were calculated using Transportation Risk Rating Index (TRRI). Required data were gathered through material safety data sheets (MSDSs) and interview by responsible persons in the terminal.

Results: TRRI was at dangerous and high level for some of chemicals in 56.6 % of the length of studied routes. Butane had the highest value TRRI in the distance below 500 meter from residential area.

Conclusion: Chemical transportation risk index for routes located in residential areas was at the dangerous level. Appropriate strategies and effective measures should be applied in order to

 reduce the risk to the acceptable level.
