Over the last three decades the process industries have grown very rapidly,
with corresponding increases in the quantities of hazardous materials in
process, storage or transport.
Plants are becoming larger and are often
situated in or close to densely
hazard of loss of life or property is continually highlighted with incidents
such as Flixborough, Bhopal, Chernobyl and Piper Alpha.
Increasing attention must therefore be paid to the control of these hazards, and
in particular the need to develop a comprehensive approach to the avoidance of
human and economic loss; this is loss prevention.
Frank Lees has completely rewritten this
classic reference work on loss prevention, bringing every aspect up to date. New
chapters are included on computers, artificial intelligence and expert systems,
and new appendices feature recent disasters such as Bhopal and Piper Alpha.
The many thousands of references have
been updated along with standards and codes of practice.
Written in a clear and concise style,
'Loss Prevention in the Process Industries' covers traditional areas of personal
safety as well as the more technological aspects and thus provides balanced and
in-depth coverage of the whole field of safety and loss prevention.
