Dear All,
Please find attached the news about an explosion at Aarti Drugs located at Tarapur MIDC, while making Methyl Nitro Imitazole .
Gist of the failures that I could make out from the news is listed below
1. There management is unable to give exact number of employees present during the explosion, which means improper head count or employees counting system.
2. The rise in temperature of reactor went un noticed. It means improper or no process safety measures. (Like interlocking with temperature)

I worked for almost 9 years in Tarapur Industrial area and understand fully how many companies operate there. Its really sad to note the accident and the negligence on the operational control. One must see the natural nallahs in the area. It is always technicolour with some times vapours emergening from the discharge. Absolutely no control from the factories and authorities naturally do not see this

It is very sad to know about the lose of valuable life for no fault of their's. Mr. Nandish it is rightly pointed out that people don't bother, and wake-up only if such incident's take place. I really don't know how they can compensate the lose of such young life lost . We can only pray for those families who have lost their loved once.
Hope now atleast the government takes strict action against the concerned person so that such incidents are not repeated.

Is't a replica of another Bhopal in the making ? Safety standards continue to be at the possible lowest. Any no.of strict regulations do nothing to prevent such tragedies. My fear over our atomic reactors all around the country growing like hell. Who knows there could be no chance of next generation India.

Deep condolences to the breaved.
