Abstract

There have been many catastrophic explosions and fires in Japan's chemical industries. By investigating these accidents, specific lessons have been learned. These lessons learned should be implemented in terms of safety education of the employees and/or safety measures of the equipment and facilities resulting in a rapid decrease of corresponding accident frequencies. A discussion on accidents in process industries and safety activities in Japan covers the use of an intelligent operation support system to prevent accidents in chemical industries; relationship between accidents and human behaviors; changes in Japanese society and industrial structure due to occurrence of serious accidents in the process industries; and efforts to develop a safety culture in the process industries. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2013 AIChE Spring Meeting and 9th Global Congress on Process Safety (San Antonio, TX 4/28/2013-5/2/2013).
