A million-dollar seller, Kletz's classic, "What Went Wrong?", has revolutionized the way industry views safety. This volume, sure to be an instant bestseller, continues the practices and wisdom of the original. Some reviews of the original: "The incidents described could occur in many types of plants, and thould therfore be of interest to a wide variety of plant operators. The new fourth edition contains considerable new material, with extensive references." (Mechanical Engineering) "This book is recommended for generalists with an interest in industrial safety and safety/process who wish to gain some insight into the realities of plant operations." (IChemE-Institute of Chemical Engineers).

Trevor Kletz, OBE, D.Sc., F.Eng., a process safety consultant, has published more than a hundred papers and nine books on loss prevention and process safety, including most recently Lessons From Disaster: How Organizations Have No Memory and Accidents Recur and Computer Control and Human Error. His experience includes thirty-eight years with Imperial Chemical Industries Ltd., where he served as a production manager and safety adviser in the petrochemical division, and membership in the department of chemical engineering at Loughborough University, Leicestershire, England. He is currently senior visiting research fellow at Loughborough University and an officer of the Order of the British Empire.
