Abstract :

Geological processes and phenomena, such as earthquakes, landslides, erosion, carsificati?³n, among others, are critical to engineering processes, due to its influence on the stability of the ground, respectively, in existing works, planned or construction (cities, buildings, bridges, dams, roads, tunnels, airports, mines, quarries, etc.). The possible occurrence of these constitutes a threat whose impact can lead to serious injury or geological risks. Santiago de Cuba Province due to seismicity, its mountainous relief, lithological composition and stratigraphic, tectonic conditions, hydrological and geo-technical, is regarded as the greatest potential geological hazards of Cuba. The analysis of this province, notes that there are problems in the study geological engineer, land use, planning, organization, evaluation, management, analysis, implementation, monitoring and control of geological hazards in the territory, i.e., management problems exist. To resolve the problems which rose, this research proposes a method for risk management and reduction geological Santiago de Cuba province. This procedure is supported by the theoretical foundations of process management, current approaches employing multidisciplinary criteria towards improving the actions aimed at the reduction and mitigation of geological risks.
