Abstract Manufacturing industries are now producing materials that can have adverse effects on humans or the environment if released even in very small quantities. This is particularly true of the pharmaceutical industry, The term "containment" is used to describe equipment or systems that prevent the release of harmful substances. This publication consists of a practical guide for the design of containment equipment or systems of harmful substances during transfer operations. Contents: containment legislation; occupational hygiene aspects of containment; examples of industrial operations requiring containment; principles for the design of containment systems; development of a containment strategy; types of containment equipment; control of wastes and emissions; operation and maintenance of containment devices; ventilation.
