Chemical Container Failure Due to Over-Pressurization

  • John Miller
Lessons Learned

Editor’s Note

The evaluation of any accident, failure, or near miss will provide lessons which can be used to prevent future, similar incidents. When an incident takes place at the Savannah River National Laboratory, John Miller, often leads an investigation of the incident and provides a “lessons learned” bulletin which is distributed throughout the Laboratory. These bulletins are generally successful failure prevention tools because the lessons that are learned are applied. Such application is one reason that the Laboratory has an outstanding safety record. This “Lessons Learned” bulletin moved me to consider a “lessons learned” section for the Journal. I would like to hear your thoughts about the “value added” to the Journal by including such a section. E-mails, letters to the editor, or even phone calls would be appreciated.
