Safety board releases video on safer design

The U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB) has released a new video, Inherently Safer: The Future of Risk Reduction. It was produced in the wake of a 2008 explosion that killed two workers and injured eight others at the Bayer CropScience chemical plant in Institute, West Virginia.

CSB commissioned the National Academy of Sciences to study the feasibility of reducing or eliminating the inventory of methyl isocyanate stored at the Bayer plant. The study looked at the idea of inherently safer design, which is also the subject of the CSB video.

The video addresses four components of inherently safe design—substitute, minimize, moderate, and simplify. It concludes with a call from CSB chairperson Rafael Moure-Erase that “[t]he principles of inherently safer processing can be an effective way for chemical companies to eliminate or reduce hazards, prevent accidents, and protect nearby communities.”

The video can be viewed on CSB's website.
