Incidents due to reactive chemical hazards continue to occur in the manufacturing industry, resulting in loss of life, property damage and environmental impact. There are many federal regulations as well as best industry practices that can be utilized to identify potential reactive chemical hazards, evaluate the impact of consequences and develop appropriate strategies to prevent or mitigate the impacts.
Several reactive chemical incidents investigated by the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) will be reviewed to identify common root causes that will be developed into lessons learned. Resources will be provided to address these lessons learned from common root causes including the lack of hazard recognition and inadequate protection strategies. Strategies for applying these lessons learned and strategies for process design of reactive chemical processing will be discussed.
Join us for an overview of reactive chemical case studies as we review root causes and apply the lessons learned to ensure safer manufacturing processes. During this informative webinar, we will discuss:
• Common root causes of incidents due to reactive chemical hazards
• Lessons learned from these incidents
• Guidelines for identifying reactive chemical hazards in your process
• Process design considerations for exothermic reactions
