ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a safety review led by former U.S. Secretary of State James Baker, which criticized the practices of BP PLC at its five refineries in the country. The company's reliance on personal safety statistics led to a false sense of confidence and kept the company from developing adequate safety procedures. The review follows a 2005 explosion at a refinery of BP in Texas City, Texas that killed 15 employees.
