How to Assess and Improve Chemical Plant Safety

November 4, 2019

Chemical manufacturing and processing plants are inherently rife with potential dangers. Occupational hazards are always a concern with employees, such as slips or falls, but there’s so much more that can go wrong. When working with volatile chemicals or substances, for instance, there’s a risk for explosions and fires. Acidic or caustic chemicals might eat away at protective gear or machinery components. Poisonous vapors or fumes may pose a pulmonary threat. It’s not a stretch to claim that maintaining safety within these facilities is a significant challenge, one that deserves adequate attention and resolve. Safety is such a vital component of operation that it requires much more than a single risk reduction strategy. It calls for adherence to a widespread cultural mindset.
