Abstract:
Professor Andrew Hopkins discusses the causes of a major explosion at the Texas City Oil Refinery on March 23, 2005. The explosion killed 15 workers and injured more than 170 others. The book also analyses the similarities between this event and the Longford Gas Plant explosion in Victoria in 1998. The author poses questions such as: - Why was the number of victims so large? - Who was blamed for the explosion? - What were the real causes? - Had lessons been learnt from the earlier incident at Longford? - Has anything changed as a result of the Texas City accident? Discussion questions are attached to this record.
