by Amy Theis, PE

Incidents due to reactive chemical hazards continue to occur in the manufacturing industry, resulting in loss of life, property damage, and environmental impacts. There are many federal regulations as well as best industry practices that can be utilized to identify potential reactive chemical hazards, evaluate the impact of consequences, and develop appropriate strategies to prevent or mitigate the impacts.  In this presentation, several reactive chemical incidents investigated by the U.S. Chemical Safety Board will be reviewed. The lack of hazard recognition and inadequate protection strategies will be discussed, along with:

• Common root causes of incidents due to reactive chemical hazards

• Lessons learned from these incidents

• Guidelines for identifying reactive chemical hazards in your process

• Process design considerations for exothermic reactions
