A member of the BP Process Safety Series developed as a complement to safety training, this text makes the perfect reference tool and training aid. The book increases the awareness, of operators within the chemical and process industries, to the hazards of water. It begins by describing water, its uses within process engineering, before pointing out the potential hazards and suggesting methods to correct them. Using case studies of actual accidents to highlight the potential threats and explain the possible causes, it raises the knowledge and awareness of operators to the dangers of water, enabling them to spot hazards before accidents occur. An excellent introduction to the topic for students.
Produced by BP and endorsed by IChemE's Loss Prevention Panel, these books were developed to complement safety training. They are ideal reference tools within the workplace, increasing awareness of hazards and helping operators to understand safe operating practices and procedures.
