The Bhopal Incident:
On 2 December1984, a pesticide factory owned by an American multinational, the Union Carbide Corporation, leaked a large amount of poisonous gas into the air surrounding a small and impoverished town called Bhopal, India. The immediate death toll has been estimated to be around 7,000 people, and the death toll from long-term health problems now stands at 25,000—and a further 25,000 people in the slums around the factory continue to be poisoned by the chemicals that have been left behind.
Conduct a case study on this disaster identifying safety management, safety audits, accident investigation, and industrial hygiene issues.
The project is required to be a minimum of 500 words in length (or a minimum of two pages double-spaced). You should follow APA style and referencing guidelines and choose articles from journals available on the CSU Online Library database. You may also use any website as a resource.
