Abstract

The paper deals with research projects initiated by HSE to resolve certain technical issues which arose out of a study of incident histories. In addition guidance is discussed which is being published by HSE, or to which HSE is contributing. This will help industry to meet their obligations under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 with respect to the safety of exothermic reactions having the potential for thermal-runaway. Finally the question of to vent or not to vent' is considered.
