Safety Videos Available Free From The Chemical Safety Board

CSB Video - Irons In The Fire
The Chemical Safety Board (CSB) provides a set of web pages on which it makes available videos about accidents it has investigated. Use this link to visit the CSB video page.  The videos are available free and can be used as training tools.  The quality is excellent, including excellent animations that show how the incident happened.

The following is a sampling of the available online CSB videos:

Iron In The Fire - Three iron dust fires in 2011 fatally injure 5 workers in Gallatin, TN.

Experimenting with Danger Hazards associated with conducting research at chemical laboratories in academic institutions.

Fatal Exposure: Tragedy at DuPont - Three accidents occur over a 33-hour period at the Dupont plant in Belle, WV.

Fire in the Valley - A CSB safety video depicting events leading to the August 28, 2008, catastrophic explosion and fire at the Bayer CropScience facility in Institute, WV, that fatally injured two workers.

No Escape: Dangers of Confined Spaces A chemical fire erupts deep in a hydroelectric plant tunnel, trapping five workers.

Dangers of Hot Work -Key lessons to prevent flammable vapor explosions caused by welding and cutting.

There are about 40 other videos, on seven web pages.

The Chemical Safety Board (CSB) is an independent federal agency charged with investigating industrial chemical accidents. The CSB conducts root cause investigations of chemical accidents at fixed industrial facilities. Root causes are usually deficiencies in safety management systems, but can be any factor that would have prevented the accident if that factor had not occurred. Other accident causes often involve equipment failures, human errors, unforeseen chemical reactions or other hazards.
