Cards can be used to remind or inform personnel of related excursions, incidents or accidents with relative ranking of key information as well as QR code links to relevant material. These could be company or industry events that help facilitate discussions on the effects of loss of control.

Sample cards are shown below:

This includes a visual reminder (image) of the incident as well as the following elements:

Location e.g. UK


QR Code to information source
Industry e.g. Petrochemical
Hazard e.g. Flammable

Cards have a ‘Top Trump’ layout similar to the SDS cards and can be used (played) in a variety of ways e.g. discuss if/how this incident relates to our operations or simply who holds the most ‘severe’ card is either the winner or loser – the prize or forfeit to be decided by the team.


Impact scores are ranked as follows:

4> 100> 100Major permanent impactMajor facility abandoned
311 – 10011 – 100Minor permanent impactMajor facility
22 – 102 – 10Major temporary impactMinor facility abandoned
111Minor temporary impactMinor facility
000No significant
No significant

Environmental & Financial categories are subjective and currently under development. Environmental impact should consider the effects of the emergency response e.g. contaminated firewater. The Financial impacts assume that abandonment (including demolition) is more costly than rebuilding because of the loss of revenue.

An alternative approach under consideration is the ARIA ‘European Scale of Industrial Accidents’ available here:

Material scores e.g. CYCLOHEXANE are simply the sum of the NFPA scores ranked on the SDS Safety Impact table.

NFPA 704 Diamond


Cards can be used in a variety of ways e.g. blank cards with only the name of the incident and/or an image could form the basis of a quiz to gauge participants knowledge of industry or company incidents – for example identify the scores, dates etc or rank them in order.

Cards can be developed for different industries, assets or activities – the current prototype is focussed on Process Safety (Loss of Containment of Hazardous Materials).

Emergency Response

Lessons learned from incidents should be used to inform the planning & rehearsal of emergency response activities.
