Due to transport incidents and accidents involving dangerous goods, which cause significant damage to the infrastructure and environment, there is a need to study ways of preventing losses from these accidents and minimizing their costs. The purpose of the paper is to develop a method for determining the acceptability of transport operations involving dangerous goods under normal conditions. The methods used in the study include analysis and synthesis, risk management and Delphi methods. The key outcome of the study is a developed method founded on an integrated generalized criterion for acceptability of the main transport operations involving dangerous goods. This criterion is based on risk assessment. It has been established that the safety of transportation is determined by the maximum level of dynamic loads, impact velocity, energy absorption efficiency, braking mode of railway cars, and degree of risk.
