Summary and Info
The examples were very clear and graphic, with good sketches or pictures. Without a doubt, I strongly recommend this book as required reading for every engineer and supervisor in the process industry and suggested reading for others. (AFE Facilities Engineering Journal)]The incidents described could occur in many types of plants, and should therefore be of interest to a wide variety of plant operators. The new fourth edition contains considerable new material, with extensive references. (Mechanical Engineering)This book is recommended for generalists with an interest in industrial safety and safety/process who wish to gain some insight into the realities of plant operations. (IChemE-Institute Of Chemical Engineers)This book should be read by every health and safety advisor and all managers and engineers who work in the chemical and petrochemical industries. It should also be used by those who provide training courses in these industries.
