Technical Measures

This chapter provides guidance on the technical measures for the prevention, control and mitigation of major accidents.

For each type of system/unit operation, all the main failure modes are identified. For each failure mode, the relevant technical measures are identified, and links are provided to Technical Measures documents which describe the measures in more detail. Alternatively, the Technical Measures documents may be accessed directly.

This chapter is therefore divided into two main sections:

Systems/unit operations
Measures documents
