Focus: Petrochemical & Access Control
A 2022 report by the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board (CSB) detailed the significant risk and occurrence of accidents and incidents in petrochemical facilities across the United States. Between 2013 and 2021, 287 such incidents were documented, leading to 21 fatalities and 1,572 injuries. The comprehensive study identified equipment failure, human error, and process safety issues as the predominant causes of these unfortunate occurrences.
In addition to the analysis of past incidents, the report also surveyed current security challenges faced by organizations in the industry. Physical security emerged as a primary concern, with 63% of respondents emphasizing its significance. This pertains to safeguarding facilities, equipment, and materials against unauthorized access, and it encompasses the prevention of theft, sabotage, and terrorism-related activities.
Process safety was cited by 51% of the participants as a crucial security challenge, focusing on preventing incidents contributing to injuries, fatalities, environmental harm, or substantial property loss. Fire and explosion prevention was another notable area of focus, acknowledged by 48% of respondents. The prevention strategies in this category aim at avoiding the occurrence of fires and explosions and mitigating potential damages ensuing from such incidents.
