9.4.11.2 Plot plan

Safety considerations are taken into account while finalizing the plot plan of an industrial plant producing chemicals. Sufficient spacing should be provided between the boundaries of different sections of the plant, and the distances between individual pieces of equipment in each section should be well within boundaries limit. The distances between individual pieces of equipment bear in mind accessibility, safe maintenance space, and safety from the adjacent equipment.
