Assessment of and Planning for Natural Hazards

Hurricane season is upon us. Are you prepared to ensure your plant’s safety in case you’re affected by an extreme weather event?

In the above video, "Extreme Weather Safety Message," the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) addresses two recent events that affected the chemical industry due to extreme weather.

The video cites the process safety monograph Assessment of and Planning for Natural Hazards, from the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS).
