CSB Releases Business Case for Safety

The publication summarizes four major accident investigations

The CSB has released a “Business Case for Safety” that summarizes four major accident investigations, according to a report. The document outlines the importance of safety and how it can be good for business.

The four investigations are: the 2005 explosion and fire at BP Texas City, the 2010 explosion and fire aboard the Macondo/Deepwater Horizon oil rig, the 2012 explosion and fire at the Chevron Refinery, and the 2013 fire and explosion at West Fertilizer.

The overall theme emphasizes that hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent as a result of chemical disasters in the United States.

Chairperson Sutherland said, “If the CSB’s many safety lessons prevented at least one catastrophic incident, the money saved by preventing damage to the facility and surrounding community, avoiding legal settlements, and saving human lives far exceeds the agency’s $11 million annual budget.”
