Author: Geoff Wells
Publication year: 1997
Extent: Hardback, 305 pages
A major hazard is an incident with the potential for injury, evacuation of people or death. The aim of this text is to give information about the development of major hazards, whether the risk is fires, explosions or toxic releases.
It provides sufficient information so that the reader can tackle tasks, such as to: design plant better; identify incidents which might occur; reduce the risk of their occurrence in frequency and consequences; establish an appropriate emergency response; produce reports which convince regulators that the plant and site are being run in a competent manner. A companion volume to Hazard identification and risk assessment.
