The tragic event of Piper Alpha occurred when this massive oil platform in the North Sea succumbed to explosion and fire, resulting in the loss of 167 lives on July 6, 1988. A disaster which could have been, if not totally adverted, dramatically changed in course without the horrible loss of human life. This powerful safety DVD unravels the sequence of events that in the course of one critical hour, lead to the disaster. It is a gripping drama/documentary that recreates the three hours of the tragedy. It provides the basis of discussion, analysis and training in a variety of OHS areas, including Risk Assessment, Permit to Work, Emergency Procedures, Safety Design and more. Support materials are supplied on CD. This includes: - Facilitator's guide, including facilitator's checklist - Facilitator's slide guide - Participants' handouts and powerpoint presentation.
