Based on the operating hours of all civil nuclear reactors and the number of nuclear meltdowns that have occurred, scientists have calculated that such events may occur once every 10 to 20 years based on the current number of reactors -- some times more often than estimated in the past. For example, if you have a storage area that includes high shelving, ensure that you have a safe ladder or step-stool available so that you or your staff members are not forced to climb on boxes of furniture to retrieve items.

The reactor accident in Fukushima has fuelled the discussion about nuclear energy and triggered Germany's exit from their nuclear power program. Business also felt that the new policy weakened its own long-established pattern of voluntary safety efforts. Incoal miners were killed at Monongah, W. Evaluation of the effects of major accidents in industrial installations covers the following topics: general introduction, source term, fire accidents, vapor cloud explosions, BLEVEs and vessel explosions, atmospheric dispersion of toxic or flammable clouds, vulnerability, and quantitative risk analysis.
