ObjectiveUnderstand how the Chemical Safety Board drives chemical safety excellence through investigation of incidents such as the Torrance refinery explosion.
DescriptionIn 2015, an explosion occurred in an FCC unit at a Torrance, CA refinery. The CSBs investigation resulted in a recommendation to ensure the lessons from this incident are learned broadly throughout the refining industry. Then, in 2018, another FCC unit explosion occurred in Wisconsin, which the CSB also investigated. The CSB will discuss both incidents and how they have been shaping the industry through ongoing knowledge-sharing improvements.
