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.
