For a long time, among the scientific circles there is a dilemma for mutual relationship between accidents and disasters within the economic, social and other development of society. Experiences and lessons learned from the past accidents lead us to conclusion that accidents, despite their destructiveness that manifests, have a positive impact on the economic development of society. The idea of developing large-scale disasters affect private companies and the state to allocate and invest large resources in scientific research work on finding ways to predict, prevent or minimize the consequences of accidents. In most cases natural disasters cannot be prevented, but people can reduce their effects. On one side, the accident can destroy the planned development initiatives and, on the other side, they can create opportunities for future development. Through the development schemes and plans, organizations can present both options how to enhance or reduce vulnerability to disaster. Most of the innovations that are created for the timely prediction of accidents find its practical application in the everyday life of people. Also, the occurrence of major disasters reduces the security of the country, especially for those countries which have limited resources. In this paper we will try to introduce a new concept of mutual connections between disasters, development and security of the society.
Key words: disaster, development, security, society
