International case studies that demonstrate the need for confidential reporting
CIRAS is a kind of early warning system. The case studies below demonstrate how CIRAS may be able to prevent safety incidents from occurring in the first place, with timely, proactive responses.
There are also some international case studies drawn from real-life accidents in a broad spread of industries – for example, oil and gas, and the nuclear industry.
The question of how confidential reporting may help avert loss of life, environmental damage and reputational damage, is the underlying theme that links these case studies together.
