When most folk think of sugar, the idea that it could blow up and destroy a factory is not something they consider. But it did happen in 2008. The thing is, the plant operators were aware of the hazard. They knew it was a hazard and that they had a problem for over 40 years, and yet it was never properly dealt with.

This talk examines the reasons why and asks what can be done to avoid letting similar situations arrive in our own organisations.


Alistair Marshall, Process Control Engineer for Petroineos, Grangemouth Refinery

Alistair devised and hosts the Disastrous Dinners series with the aim of increasing awareness and knowledge of process safety outwith the traditional channels. Alistair has previously worked in operations both at Grangemouth Refinery and British Sugar.


18:30 arrival with a 19:00 start till late.
