Major industrial hazards : Research projectsFunded under: FP3-ENV 1C
The European Community recognised the hazards presented by industrial plant both through the introduction of legislation and, since 1987, by supporting a research programme dedicated to the understanding of these risks and their reduction. In this brochure, the objectives of the project are described and results from the first phase of research (1987-1992) are presented. New projects and the future of the programme are described, with emphasis on the following issues: (i) chemical and physical phenomena; (ii) prevention and mitigation of accidents; (iii) risk assessment and risk management. A list of institutions contributing to this research is also included.
