IChemE and BP publish animated safety lessons
30 September 2008
IChemE and BP have teamed up to publish a series of animations designed to aid safety learning through past incidents and experiences. The animations can be used as standalone training modules or as supplementary material for safety courses.
LPG storage-related refinery fire at Feyzin, France
The first trio of animations focus on an LPG storage-related refinery fire at Feyzin, France; a refinery explosion at Milford Haven, Wales; and a platform fire at Piper Alpha, a North Sea oil production platform. Each simulation focuses on a single incident or accident and follows the timeline of events from cause to effect.
Lee Allford, Operations Manager at the European Process Safety Centre welcomed the new series: “This is an excellent way for a high hazards site to draw on lessons from disasters which have occurred both in and outside the process industry.
“With a focus on management system failures rather than technical details, the series provides an absorbing account of several well known accidents which provokes the viewer to challenge their own safety methods and behaviour,” added Allford, who is co-coordinating EPSC’s ‘Learning from Accidents’ conference next month in Antwerp, Belgium where BP’s Frederic Gil is part of the speaker line-up.
