    Society as a whole is extremely dependent upon chemicals. They are used daily in food production and preservation, water sanitation, housing, housekeeping and household equipment, transportation and health care.1 This dependence is supported by a vigorous chemical industry, with distribution by a transport infrastructure of railway and road haulage, sea and air cargo. The continuing rapid growth and globalization of the chemicals industry means that incidents involving the inadvertent release of chemicals will almost inevitably continue to be a problem.
