The domestic and global risk to chemical and petrochemical facilities is enormous in breadth and can be catastrophic in nature. Facilities must be keenly aware of the risk involved and the necessary security measures and regulations. Building from a historical perspective, this book demonstrates how prior catastrophes have affected current regulations, best practices, and mitigation opportunities. It details how to identify your organization’s security risks and offers tools for improving security and overall resiliency. Incidents covered include the 2013 Canadian train derailment and petroleum explosion, the butane plant explosion in Texas, and the BP Deepwater Horizon spill.
