Sample text

There was only one manual backup system, compared to a four-stage system used at facilities operated by the parent company. The flare tower and the vent gas scrubber had been out of service for five months before the disaster. The gas scrubber, therefore, did not treat escaping gases with sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which might have brought the concentration down to a safe level, although the scrubber and flare system design was inadequate for the flow rate of MIC involved in the incident.

An analysis of chemical residue in various pieces of process equipment was used to support the development of incident logic. The incident at Bhopal was not really an accident. There was no real element of surprise. Conditions had deteriorated for many months while no one stepped forward to intervene. Physical and paper evidence suggesting huge gaps in the safety culture were very visible and should have been apparent to any responsible worker on the facility site. However, the definition of responsible worker has little meaning if management has not defined a safety culture and declared a clear set of operating priorities.

Preventive Barriers Example: Engineering Mitigative Barriers Incident Example: Firewater Figure 2-2 Swiss Cheese Model of Barriers to Consequences Management system elements serve several distinct purposes. Some deal with people while others address the equipment integrity within a facility. Still others check the integrity of the process to ensure that it is stable and predictable. Within a company, there may also be management systems that deal with financial results 2. INCIDENT MECHANICS 21 and stakeholder relations.
