Thematic Network on Hazard Assessment of Highly Reactive Chemicals
HarsNet is an European
Thematic Network focused on the safety of chemical reaction processes.
HarsNet is supported by the
Industrial and Materials Technologies Programme of the European Commission (Brite EuRam,
Project number: BET2-0572).
This site is maintained by HarsNet.
Network on Process Safety
SafetyNet is a European Network on Process Safety, and offers information on on
industrial safety, explosion and fire protection.
International Programme on Chemical Safety
The International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS), established in 1980, is a
joint programme of three Cooperating Organizations, ILO, UNEP and WHO, implementing
activities related to chemical safety. IPCS is an intersectoral coordinated and
scientifically based programme. WHO is the Executing Agency of the IPCS.
Process Intensification (PI) refers to technologies and strategies that
enable the physical sizes of conventional process engineering unit operations to be

for Chemical Process Safety (AIChE)
CCPS is an industry-driven, non-profit professional organization affiliated with
the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE).
It is committed to developing engineering and management practices to prevent or mitigate
the consequences of catastrophic events involving the release of chemicals and
hydrocarbons that could harm employees, neighbors and the environment. Some areas of
interest to CCPS sponsors include hazard and risk analysis, engineering design, operations
and maintenance, information dissemination and process safety management.

Fire Protection Association (NFPA)
This site contains the latest information about the National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA), its departments, publications, seminars, and educational programs. The
mission of NFPA, which was organized in 1896, is to reduce the burden of fire on the
quality of life by advocating scientifically based consensus codes and standards, research
and education for fire and related safety issues.

and Scientific Working Groups
ILO (International Labour Organization). Chemical Safety Training Modules
The Training Modules on Chemical Safety have been compiled in order to introduce
safe use of chemicals at places of work, to present classification systems for the
labelling and transport of dangerous goods, to allow the reading and use of chemical
safety cards, to give a basic overview of toxicology and to disseminate information on
selected, widely used, hazardous substances. It contains material usable in handouts,
demonstrations and exercises, as well as slides, colour transparencies and diskettes
containing text files and databases.

ATHAS web site
The ATHAS group was founded by Professor Bernhard Wunderlich, who has worked since
1955 in the field of thermal analysis. The first eight years were spent at Northwestern
and Cornell Universities. This was followed by 25 years at Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute, and since 1988 ATHAS is located at The University of Tennessee at Knoxville and
Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
