The safe warehousing of hazardous chemicals is a design challenge in chemical and petrochemical projects. The wide range of properties and regulatory constraints requires a full understanding of all of the predictable implications over the various engineering disciplines engaged in the design, as well as a high degree of integration of the competencies. A systemic methodology for safe warehouse design has been developed, with the aim of identifying hazards, considering regulatory requirements, assessing risks, addressing adequate design criteria and implementing all necessary mitigation and risk-reduction measures. It is a complex process that involves, at different levels, different spec
