Applying the Swiss Cheese Model to Prevent Catastrophic Failure in Storage Tank System

The speaker will talk about the importance of Swiss Cheese model in storage tank system. It can be an important aid to organization’s operation & engineering leaders to understand low-pressure storage tank risk. The speaker will share a case study of high potential near miss related to storage tank system & will address different levels of human error including unsafe acts, preconditions for unsafe acts, unsafe supervision and recommendation for adequate layer of protection.

Dust Explosion Prevention in Polymer Additive Areas

The speaker will share company’s on-going efforts on prevention of dust explosion by reducing the probability of two sides of the dust explosion pentagon: dust accumulation and the presence of an ignition source. Company have identified one such ignition source as buildup of static electricity while handling solid materials with inadequate grounding and bonding. The speaker will share how the company improved; 1.Grounding practices for the additive bags to include two grounding cables and independent procedural verification step, 2.Conducting a review of the central vacuum system to avoid dust accumulation.

Lessons Learned from Scenarios Found during PHA of Startup, Shutdown, and Online Maintenance

Speaker will briefly talk about increasing regulatory focus on PHA procedures for evaluating hazards during non-routine modes of operation & human factors in general. Speaker will explain an approach for fully addressing Human Factors in Hazard Evaluations (PHAs) with four case studies on PHA of non-routine Operating Modes.


Adel Al-Dakheel

Senior Engineer, Process Improvement Institute (PII)

How to Assess and Investigate High Potential Consequence Incidents

In this presentation, speaker will share company’s efforts to identify, assess and investigate high potential consequence events. Speaker will discuss how such near misses are assessed, tools used and the level of investigation and screening applied for such high potential consequence events
