Safety Analysis of Incident

Educators: For information about accessing the solutions to the safety modules, please contact SAFEChE.

The Chemical Safety Board (CSB) has documented and made videos of a number of accidents that have occurred over the last 40 years. These videos and associated modules are the basis for many of the modules on this website. The first step for each safety module is comprised of:

  1. View the CSB video
  2. Fill out the safety analysis. An example of which is seen below.
The safety analysis is the first part of all of the safety modules.  This example shows blank fields for activity, hazards, incident, initiating event, preventative actions and safeguards, contingency plans and mitigating actions, as well as lessons learned.  There is also a section for definitions of these.
