Example text

In Chapter 5 the conceptual approach from the previous Chapter will be tested and evaluated and finally applied to a single case study in the Dutch chemical process industry. This exercise is performed to test the conceptual approach in practice. The findings of the case study will be evaluated and will lead to refinements in the conceptual approach. Finally a structured protocol will be derived and applied to the same case study to ascertain if the structured protocol is effective and suitable for practical use and leads to answering the research questions posed in Chapter 1.

In these 91 accidents, 21 accidents involved transport by road, water, rail, or air. As those accidents did not impact on the chemical process industry they were excluded from the analysis. The 70 remaining accidents were distributed all over the world as can be seen from Figure 12. Please note that this figure does not represent the geographical distribution of all accidents in the world, it merely represents a sub selection of FACTS accidents. Asia Australia 4% 3% Europe 20% North-America 73% Figure 12 Geographical distribution of investigated accidents.

On the contrary, they contribute to the enhancement of the pro-active SIs by means of the lessons learned from accidents. The overview of pro-active SIs, the associated tools and data presented in this Chapter is not exhaustive but will serve as a fair representation of the variety of data, tools and indicators commonly used in the modern chemical process industry. The author has been unable to find literature with overviews of all known types of SIs, and therefore has created his own selection.
