Today marks the 30th anniversary of the loss of 193 souls on the MS Herald of Free Enterprise.


IChemE and BP recognized this maritime incident as a learning opportunity when they added it to their portfolio of Process Safety animations.

This valuable library should encourage and assist duty & stake holders to reflect on their own facilities & activities and to consider what other accidents, incidents & dangerous occurrences have happened inside & outside their industry to avoid making the same mistakes.


For example, the following (all too familiar themes) are highlighted by this tragedy:

  • Reliance on Procedures

  • Design of alarm systems

  • Management of change (Organisational and creeping changes)

  • Major accident potential

  • Layers Of Protection concept

  • Hazard Identification

Do not be complacent - just because your industry hasn't suffered, doesn't mean it won't.
I was going to sign this off by saying "Lest We Forgot" but you can't forget what you didn't know but ignorance is no excuse - the evidence is out there.
