Incident reporting & experience sharing workshop
On 12-13th of June 2018, Euro Chlor held a successful Safety Workshop on incident reporting and experience sharing.
With 27 participants from 14 member companies, the workshop covered why incident reporting and learning from these incidents is important, based on the experiences of two of the members present.
The event also involved group work on a theoretical incident, designed to help attendees identify root causes and mechanisms to share learnings both within their companies and the wider Euro Chlor community. No chlorine valve or piping, membrane, knock-out vessel or measurement instrument remained unstudied!
Sharing knowledge from incidents, and the lessons learned, is one of the cornerstones of Euro Chlor’s safety advice. Feedback from the event has identified that more work is needed to encourage incident reporting, using digital media and a task force dedicated to process safety issues and incident reporting. Ton Manders, Euro Chlor’s Technical Director, praised the hard work of all participants, commenting that “it was encouraging to see people with different backgrounds working together to find safety solutions”.
