This generic risk assessment applies to all fire and rescue authority operations which involve petrochemicals and their derivatives.

The purpose of this assessment is not to address every conceivable hazard that may be presented, but to identify, evaluate and control the ‘significant risks’ which are specifically inherent with these particular incidents.
