In small plants that store, handle or process hazardous chemicals, issues concerning safety, health and the environment are becoming increasingly Consequently, more knowledge about these elements is needed. Although several environmental management tools have been introduced in recent years, environmental accidents have usually only been addressed rather lightly. In order to assist installations with limited expertise about chemical accidents, the SPASE Project has produced a guidance package aimed at managing their risks in a sufficient and suitable way. The SPASE methodology is unique in that it covers all the main steps needed to proactively minimise the risks associated with the accidental release of chemicals to the environment. Furthermore, it is equally applicable in many industrial sectors.
