EGRESS demonstrates that it is possible to model the behaviour of people in hazardous situations. The results of simulations, while they should not be interpreted as full verification of the model, are very encouraging.

EGRESS can simulate scenarios in different platform layouts and help in the design of safer installations or in the improvement of existing ones. The script representation is a natural one and scripts can be easily modified by the safety analyst to reflect different roles, conditions or procedures. In this way EGRESS can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of existing procedures and to help in improving training.
