Technological hazard

FJ

A technical hazard is a hazard that arises from technological or industrial conditions, such as accidents, dangerous procedures, infrastructure failures, or specific human activities, and can result in death, injury, illness, or other health consequences, property damage, loss of livelihoods and services, social and economic disruption, or environmental damage.

Industrial pollution, nuclear radiation, toxic wastes, dam collapses, transportation accidents, manufacturing explosions, fires, and chemical spills are all examples of technological risks. Technological dangers may also occur as a direct result of the effects of a natural disaster.
