Today's words of zoological wisdom come from Incident Investigations.
Just because the actual outcome was 'tame' (low consequence) doesn't mean that there isn't a High Potential (HiPo) threat waiting to appear.
Hippos are Africa's greatest killer (after malaria & humans) and can hide under the water and strike when least expected. Process Safety incidents are like that - we know they are out there, but we never know when they will strike or who will be the victim.
