About this book

The operator of a hazardous installation - any chemical, oil, gas, foodstuff or power facility, and many others - governed by the Seveso II/COMAH Directives is legally obliged to consider potential environmental accidents in the same way as they consider accidents affecting the safety of the public. This is very much more easily said than done. This book guides readers through the scientific, engineering, technical and legal complexities and requirements of the Directive and will be a truly valuable cost saving compliance tool for many organisations.

The Directive is not only concerned with high profile human and environmental disasters and much of the regulation focuses on more common small scale incidents, such as chemical release into rivers, or low level releases of toxins into the atmosphere as a result of fires, floods or transportation accidents.

The information and lessons in this book are a valuable resource for operators of major hazard establishments and their environmental and safety advisors when assessing the potential impact of their operations... This book gives an insight into the diverse aspects of MATTEs. Operators of COMAH /Seveso II establishments and safety and environmental professionals should take account of the information and lessons presented in this publication.--The Chemical Engineer magazine
