I'm trying to research the role of royal commissions in developing safety improvements after a disaster. Many sources point to the Canadian Royal Commission after the Ocean Ranger capsize in 1982 and the Cullen Inquiry into Piper Alpha in the UK. Does anyone know where i can source copies of the official commision reports online? Are they available anywhere as a PDF?

Thanks

KT,

Auckland NZ.

KT,

Try searching for the Inquiry reference ISBN 0101113102 (Cullen Inquiry into Piper Alpha).

Hope this is useful.

You might also find the BBC programme about Piper Alpha in their disasters series helpful or at least intersting.   I think you can get it from the BBC website or via the Open University

IOSH do a book called 'Disasters: learning the lessons for a safer world', that might be worth a look?

You should sign up to a good technical library (such as a university library but alos some municipal libraraies). They can get you copies of such reports via interlibrary loans.

When I needed it I borrowed it from the British Library - very helpful staff, very fast turnaround time to get it out to me.
