In spite of having advanced technologies and the increasingly strict regulations, serious accidents involving pressure vessels and piping can still occur. This has led us to conduct a study on the risks and the root causes of accidents related to these devices. This article is based on a literature review of the last 10 years in addition to the analysis of the accident reports of Quebec and American for the last 16 years. The main risks highlighted are the explosion of tanks, by rupture of enclosure, and leak of the confined fluid products. The consequences of these accidents depend on the type of product contained and the dimensions of the vessel. The main cause of these accidents is not related to technical failure but corresponds to the non-compliance, failure or absence of the work procedures. Moreover, the accidents occur mainly in small and medium-sized enterprises, whether in the US of America or in Quebec. In order to prevent possible risks and occupational accidents, the impact of the corporate structure and social responsibility on the implementation of effectiveness of Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems should be parameters to be taken into account in the next studies on the health and safety risk assessments of pressure vessels.
