A member of the BP Process Safety Series developed as a complement to safety training, this text makes the perfect reference tool and training aid. The book increases the awareness of operators within the chemical and process industries, to the hazards of trapped pressure and vacuum. It begins by describing trapped pressure and vacuum and their uses within the process industries, before pointing out the potential hazards. Using case studies of actual accidents to highlight the potential threats and explain the possible causes, it raises the knowledge and awareness of operators to the dangers of trapped pressure and vacuum, enabling them to spot and rectify hazards before accidents occur. The book concludes with a self-test section allowing readers to test their understanding of the information presented. An excellent introduction to the topic for students.
Produced by BP and endorsed by IChemE's Loss Prevention Panel, these books were developed to complement safety training. They are ideal reference tools within the workplace, increasing awareness of hazards and helping operators to understand safe operating practices and procedures.
