How was the Bhopal disaster caused?

    The Bhopal industrial disaster was caused by a mix of technological and human error. First, there was a leak (if it can be called that). 500 litres of water got into a storage tank and caused a massive chemical reaction. The supervisor on duty didn’t contain the problem in time, actually waiting until it was much to late to try anything. Also, lax safety procedures and maintenance made sure that the leak was allowed to happen, because if someone had fixed the leak before the chemical reaction, the toxic gas wouldn’t have seeped out and hit the nearby town, causing deaths and an immense number of medical problems for those who lived through it.
