Under Pressure- Incidents and Lessons Learned
(Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)
Many types of high technology equipment use high pressure or vacuum as part of processing. These can present significant hazards that are not always obvious. This can result in explosive forces that can cause significant injuries and property damage. Proper design, planning, and controls are needed in order to prevent these incidents. In this presentation, I will share some actual pressure-related incidents that have recently occurred and the lessons leaned resulting from them.
