The U.S. Chemical Safety Board has released a free three-disc set of technical videos detailing some of the nation's worst chemical accidents.

The videos include detailed animation and follow CSB investigations of those accidents. The set may be ordered by filling out the board's DVD request form, or it may be streamed and downloaded from the CSB website.

'Foreceful Depiction'

"The CSB Safety Videos are known around the world for their forceful depiction of the events that lead to deadly releases, explosions and fires, and their clear explanations of the root causes of the accidents—all derived from the high-quality detailed investigations carried out by CSB staff," said Rafael Moure-Eraso, CSB Chairperson.


The CSB Safety Videos are "known around the world for their forceful depiction" of accidents.

"We believe the new three-disc set, including our latest videos, will facilitate distribution and bring safety awareness to an even higher level."

The CSB videos usually show chemical processes and the sequence of events that led to accidents.

The set includes a third disc with videos released since the last two-disc compilation was released. The new videos include a deadly explosion during fireworks disposal in Hawaii, the tragic consequences of welding a storage tank containing flammable vapor, and laboratory accidents during chemical research.

A complete list of titles and descriptions for all three DVDs can be found at the bottom of the CSB's press release.

The videos have received numerous awards and are used in training, seminars, and board presentations as lessons in the consequences of inadequate safety management.

The CSB is an independent federal agency that investigates industrial chemical accidents.
