The aim of the following contribution is the mapping of hazards of transport of dangerous substances on a chosen railway stretch in the Moravian-Silesian Region. The mapping will be used for the preparation of a new module �Railway� for the prototype software system FLOREON+ . The mapping focuses on railway critical points, such as level crossings, underpasses, bridges, where an increased risk of accidents exists. The contribution also deals with the issue of the most common causes of more or less severe railway accidents leading to injury and/or loss of human life and property damage.
