10 "Safety doesn t happen by accident" SAC History Continued Both the company owning the vehicle involved in the accident and local authorities wanted the area shut off from all traffic. We will never know if the other oil company personnel could have made a difference in the outcome of this accident and the remediation that took place.

11 "Safety doesn t happen by accident" SAC History Continued But it is the opinion of those involved that the extra help WOULD have made a significant difference.
