Inferno: Combustible dust explosion at Imperial Sugar - video report

We recently posted about the Imperial Sugar Company explosion report issued by the US Chemical Safety Board, but more recently we found a video version, which we think is well worth the nine and a half minutes it takes to view it. Using computer graphics, it clearly explains how the accident happened and the conditions that led to it. It should be mandatory viewing by the 100,000 at-risk organizations that have the potential for such explosions, but think "it can't happen here."

Any Risk Mgr. worth a spit would've railed aganist the accumulated dust and exposure thereof. I'm positive that Exec. Mgmt. didn't want to expend the cost...look where it got them.
