Just like planes, but things do go wrong.
Corporations ALWAYS say best practice. For example:
NASA spaceshuttle Colombia disaster 2003 killed 7 people:

Another fatal NASA incident was due to an eroding O-ring.
More recently in West Virginia TransCanada pipeline exploded it was only opened in January of this year:
The CEO of this company stated “This is truly a best-in-class pipeline and we look forward to many years of safe, reliable, and efficient operation on behalf of our customers.”
