State-of-the-Art of Risk Assessment of Chemical Plants in Europe
○ The significant increase in scale and complexity in the manufacturing processes involved.
○ The occurrence of a number of major accidents (albeit not the worst conceivable).
○ The increasing public awareness of risks in the context of other industries, notably nuclear power.
