Steve Britten, President, Specialty Technical Publishers notes:
"Whatever the political implications might be of trade pacts (and their dissolution), major hazardous material incidents pose a universal health – and economic – threat, and the European Union produced an excellent set of guidelines with the production of its SEVESO III Regulatory Framework. Now available through STP as a free eBook in a multi-part series, this is a valuable guide to what EU member states – and their citizens – need to know about the prevention, countermeasures, and emergency protocols involved in a major hazardous materials incident. This is a valuable tool for both the professional and the concerned citizen. Future eBooks will look at other jurisdictions and delve into the field of risk analysis and hazard assessment requirements for a wide variety of facilities."
The second part of the eBook series will follow shortly and will focus on process safety management of highly hazardous chemicals. Specifically on how 29 CFR 1910.119 in the United States aligns with requirements around the world.
