MAVERICK Technologies (2008) How to ensure safety process plants

No one can argue against the importance of safety in process plants. These complex and often
volatile environments house a variety of potential dangers — putting both people and physical
assets at risk. But even though companies uphold safety as a value, accidents continue to
happen. Companies must identify and understand the root causes of accidents in order to
eliminate them.
First, one must consider how realistic it is to eliminate workplace accidents. Some may assume
that accidents are an inherent part of any process plant and that management’s role is to mitigate
the damage. This reactive mindset will never solve safety problems — but with a proactive
approach to plant safety, all accidents are completely preventable.
By eliminating accidents, companies can protect the safety and health of their employees,
minimize costly damage to machinery and extend the life of their assets. At the very basic level,
machines are replaceable; people are not. And ironically, just as human safety is a primary risk
when machines fail, human error is a primary cause of machine failure.
