identification number, NIC Code, date of registration, products,
number of employees, frequency of inspections, accident dangerous
occurrences, investigations enforcement notice, prosecutions etc.

particulars of storage vessels operating at high temperatures and
pressures; safety reports; safety systems; list of specialists in
Major Accident Hazard Control and information on basic and hazardous
nature of chemicals (Materials Safety Data). Besides a data bank
