Safety Moment #12: The (Process Safety) Two Second Rule

Two second rule applied to process safety

The Two Second Rule is used in driver training. It states that a driver should stay at least two seconds behind any vehicle that is directly in front of his or her vehicle. This is because most drivers require at least two seconds in which to respond to a sudden or emergency situation. The concept of a “two second rule” can also be used in process safety management programs.
