Leading Change and Plant Safety

Thursday, April 10th, 2008

You’d think that promoting safety in a plant would be an easy sell. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. I just came across the Chemical and Safety Hazard Investigation Board (CSV). They have prepared a series of safety videos. One that they recently posted covers the tragedy at the BP plant near Houston where 15 were killed and 180 were injured. The video shows what happened. Without moralizing or turning it into a typical training video, you can see many places where different actions could have saved lives. It is quite sobering.

BP Texas City Refinery Tragedy  This video is about 6 minutes long.
I saw this video about a year ago and its message has stuck with me.

The CSB.GOV site mentions a 56 minute video but I can’t find. Perhaps you’ll have better luck.
