High Hazard Industries deal with substantial amounts of hazardous substances, including flammable and toxic materials, which inherently pose a risk of serious incidents and accidents. To prevent these, it is crucial that there are systems and processes in place that effectively manage hazards, associated risks and safe work procedures.
