What we can learn from BP disaster
Fortune has this article on BP disaster and this is the most important lesson to learn from it.
“The process-safety lessons taught there are universal: Critical procedures should be formalized and carried out with rigor; it’s essential to maintain multiple safeguards against an accident; it is dangerous to change operating plans on the fly; anomalies need to be clearly resolved; small incidents are warning signs that conditions are ripe for a disaster; and a long stretch without a serious accident breeds complacency — people forget to be afraid.”
