Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Identifies accidents in process plants that could have been prevented by better training, management, design, construction, maintenance, and methods of operation. The author believes the inevitability of human error should be anticipated during the design process. The third edition adds more examples of accidents caused by human error. Annotation c.
