At RefComm Galveston 2023, Neal Cammy of BLAC INC gave an in-depth overview of the CSB report that emerged from the Husky Superior FCC Explosion, which was published in December 2022. Even though this report was made public, our industry tends to shy away from talking about incidents like these at conferences. This very public report provided a good basis for discussion and the CSB made very specific recommendations to our industry that Neal felt important to highlight.
In his presentation, Neal covers the incident timeline and not cover the emergency response issues.
