The following sample essay on “Industrial Disasters”: how industrial disasters affect natural disasters.
A disaster can strike at any time without any warning, natural disasters such as earthquakes, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc are unavoidable. But the manmade disasters can be prevented and mitigated somehow. Industrial disasters are the worst of the kind because they cannot only ruin the reputation of the company but also many employees can lose their lives in the process. Some of these disasters can have a long-lasting impact on the general people and the workers.
History is full of such kinds of disasters as the Bhopal incident, the Chornobyl Nuclear Disaster, the BP oil spill, and many others. In this project, the company considered is the Aramco Company. Which are the leading oil company and one of the main sources of the economy for Saudi Arabia. Although Saudi Arabia has employed a team of efficient engineers and foreign expatriate workers to preside over the main functional units of the company, there are still chances of any mishap either during manufacturing or during the shipment of the oil.
So, the existing plan for the disaster response will be considered and analyzed. Besides that, some prominent incidents which have occurred in the company will be considered as a case study and in the end, a better disaster response and recovery process will be recommended in this project.
Owing to the recent incidents in the Aramco Company which have resulted in the death of many workers and also have damaged the infrastructure of the company, there is a need to discuss and analyze the existing disaster management strategy of the Aramco Company and how well they have learned from the past incidents.
Moreover, it’s important to highlight the key problems in the existing strategy and to have a new and better strategy. To save lives and to make the main industry of the company more reliable than ever.
The project will have the following objectives that will be needed to cover for the successful implementation of the project.
· Introduction of Aramco Company, its disaster, and crisis management policy.
· Analyzing some recent and past incidents that have resulted in casualties, injuries, and damage to infrastructure.
· Identifying the root causes of the incidents.
· Highlighting the key problems in the disaster response and recovery process.
· Suggesting a new strategy to have a better response during an emergency.
A detailed research report will be submitted as a product to the faculty which will highlight the main finding of this project. The report will have the new purposed strategy for disaster management and some alternative options for the solution to the problem will be also discussed in the final report. It is expected that report will provide a depth analysis of the main problem and based on the nature of the problem best solution will be purposed. Because multiple issues can be explored while doing the research and it is necessary to discuss these issues.
A case study type methodology will be implemented in which the prominent disaster that occurred in the Aramco company will be discussed. The strategy used by the company to handle such issues will also come under question and the human factor will also be considered in the research. Three case studies will be discussed in the research report and the strategy used to handle the tragedy will be the focal point. To gather the information about the Aramco Company and their strategy online reliable articles will be cited and if the necessary information is not collected, an industrial tour for Aramco Company can be arranged to discuss their strategy with their senior crisis management officer.
Yes, the product will be delivered during the specified time under normal circumstances, because I have done most of the research on the topic and have already made a plan to deliver this project on time. Which includes submitting every required document on time.
To remain ethical in this project and not to violate the policy of this university writing center will be visited before submitting every milestone to make sure there isn’t any plagiarism in the report and everything I will submit is my work. Besides that
The cost of the project is expected to be around $700 including the cost of an industrial tour to Aramco Company and the cost spent on buying articles from research journals.
