Since the first Industrial Revolution, technology has evolved to provide us with new products and production methods, improved quality, output, efficiency and many other benefits. However, this came at a cost and much has been learnt from incidents where the unexpected or the unforeseen (and perhaps unforeseeable) has happened.
