Unexpected releases of toxic, reactive, or flammable liquids and gases in processes involving highly hazardous chemicals have been reported for many years.  Incidents continue to occur in various industries that use highly hazardous chemicals which may be toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive or may exhibit a combination of these properties.  Regardless of the industry that uses these highly hazardous chemicals, there is a potential for an accidental release any time they are not properly controlled.  This, in turn, creates the possibility of disaster.
