Do you feel lucky? Learnings from near-miss case studies

Do you feel lucky? Learnings from near-miss case studies

Safe and reliable operations should be everyone's first priority and it's important to learn from our own as well as other's mistakes. Near misses are sometimes not given the same external visibility as incidents leading to personnel harm and/or equipment damage. But often, the difference between an incident and a near miss is pure luck.

In this webinar, Ian Robertson will present four near miss case studies:

  • poor knockout drum design
  • over-pressure of compressor suction scrubber due to reverse flow
  • effects of pipeline slugging on printed circuit heat exchangers
  • effects of creeping change on an NGL injection system
