Case Histories of Process Plant Disasters and How They Could Have Been Avoided
Learn from the mistakes of others and examine the causes and aftermaths of plant disasters - almost all of which could have been prevented. The case histories in this book illustrate what went wrong and why it went wrong, providing guidance on circumventing similar tragedies in the future.
You'll learn how incidents occur through simple miscommumcation and how straightforward changes in design can commonly remove or reduce opportunities for human error.
The Fifth Edition is updated with new material, including coverage of recent incidents and now presents a complete analysis of the design, operational, and managerial causes of process plant accidents in a single essential volume.

"This book should be read by all managers and engineers who work in the chemical and petrochemical industries." - The Safety & Health Practioner, review of the previous edition
"The examples were very clear and graphic, with good sketches or pictures. Without a doubt, I strongly recommend this book as required reading for every engineer and supervisor in the process industry and suggested reading for others." - AFE Facilities Engineering Journal
"The incidents described could occur in many types of plants, and should therefore be of interest to a wide variety of plant operators." - Mechanical Engineering
"Recommended for generalists with an interest in industrial safety and safety/process who wish to gain some insight into the realities of plant operations." - IChemE-Institute Of Chemical Engineers
