ABSTRACT
The article highlights the call by U.S. Secretary of State James Baker on the refining and chemicals sector to learn from the BP petroleum refinery accident that killed 15 workers in Texas in March 2005. Baker said that BP did not provide effective process safety leadership and that lack of leadership touched all levels of the company's corporate management. A report found that BP mistakenly interpreted improving personal injury rates as an indication of acceptable process safety performance at its U.S. refineries.
