A red hot spot was identified on a furnace tube in a refinery. The tube later ruptured, allowing hydrocarbon to enter the furnace and create a large fire. An operator lost his life.

Ask yourself and your crew:

  • How can something like this happen here (e.g. on our site)?
  • What safety measures (i.e. procedures, controls/barriers) do we have in place to mitigate the risk?
  • How do we know the risk controls/barriers are working?
  • What improvements or changes should we make to the procedures, controls/barriers or the way we work?
