Can you find the safety problem? November 2012

We are finishing our celebration of 10 years of the
2 Relief
Process Safety Beacon with a Find the Problem contest. 1 valve
Look at the pictures in this Beacon and identify as many
hazardous situations (problems) as you can. There is at least
one unique safety problem in Pictures 1 through 6, and
Picture 7 has more than 10 (identify at least 6 to qualify as a
contest winner). Not all are process hazards you will
find things like tripping hazards. We will select three
winners at random from correct responses, and winners will
receive a free CCPS book of their choice, subject to
availability. Responses must be received by Midnight US
Eastern Time on Nov. 30, 2012 to be eligible for the prizes.
Complete rules, and a form to submit answers, can be
found at Our
answers will appear in the January 2013 Beacon. You will
also be asked to participate in a short survey to help us
understand how the Beacon is being used, so we can better
serve our readers. We realize that some of the pictures are Rupture disk
small in this Beacon, so you will also find bigger pictures
on line at the contest web address.
