Safety in the process industries is critical for those who work with chemicals and hazardous substances or processes. The field of loss prevention is, and continues to be, of supreme importance to countless companies, municipalities and governments around the world, and Lees’ is a detailed reference to defending against hazards. Recognized as the standard work for chemical and process engineering safety professionals, it provides the most complete collection of information on the theory, practice, design elements, equipment, regulations and laws covering the field of process safety. An entire library of alternative books (and cross-referencing systems) would be needed to replace or improve upon it, but everything of importance to safety professionals, engineers and managers can be found in this all-encompassing three volume reference instead.
  • The process safety encyclopedia, trusted worldwide for over 30 years
  • Now available in print and online, to aid searchability and portability
  • Over 3,600 print pages cover the full scope of process safety and loss prevention, compiling theory, practice, standards, legislation, case studies and lessons learned in one resource as opposed to multiple sources

This book is a good reference for all learners in Teaching and industry, about the fundamentals of Chemical process safety.As we have Chemical process safety as apart of course in under graduate and post graduate level.It is also useful for the industry person for the Safety audit,which is the need of the day.I hope it will prevent accidents and contribute to human society in coming days.
