Broad study guidance on the principles of managing health and safety in such locations. Acknowledging the fact that small and medium sites make up some 80pc of the UK's chemical business sector, this is an extensively detailed examination addressed primarily to those who manage or work in such contained operations and are typically involved in chemical processing, manufacture, storage or distribution.

The guidance is divided into four over-arching sections: managing health and safety; chemical industry hazards; chemical industry activities; and emergencies. Each section, in turn, examines more specific aspects such as issues relating to storage, production or the finished product. The intensive information is supported throughout by an expansive series of photographs, diagrams, cross-sectional analyses and tabular presentations of data.
