Try these links, they are mostly classic papers from process safety literature. These papers primarily focus on thermal runaway and pressure generation that can lead to catastrophic equipment failure. They don’t address issues of occupational exposure to chemicals.

I’m currently working on a safety talk about RAMP and decided to include a section on “RAMPing up Reactions”
It was discussed at ACS that scaling up reactions is a under-stated danger in many chemistry laboratories.
Does anyone have any suggestion for articles that talks about or quantifies the risks of increasing the yield in chemical reactions?
For example: https://ac.els-cdn.com/S1871553213006178/1-s2.0-S1871553213006178-main.pdf?_tid=672cf49d-0170-4ff1-8b06-85bc88bda807&acdnat=1537887055_4baf3ea46cec9ef7b4cb51c2aba76bf8 I found very informative and it would be great to find more sources.
