On chemical plants, chemical dangers are usually in a Pandora’s Box; in order to facilitate routine production activities, the staff’s personal protection grade is often relatively low. Different protective devices are chosen in the light of distinct working periods, job specifications or working places, such as workshops, warehouses and roads and so on.
However rigorous the safety precautions are, the Pandora’s box may open from time to time: plant repairing, cleaning, duty shifting, backward flowing or night shift are moments when risks are usually at their highest. How can the staff adopt proper emergency protection to safeguard their lives? How can we respond swiftly to the dangers? Those two questions will be at the center of this workshop’s discussion, in order to help EHS professionals to take the best decisions, and provide more effective safety protections.
To develop our discussion, we will assume that there is an accident on the plant.
Our workshop accidents scenarios are set on a petrochemical – light chemistry plant, where flammable, explosive, toxic, and other hazardous chemicals are present, as raw material, semi-finished and finished product. The plant includes the following settings:
Emergency situations safety preparation is a key point in dealing with unexpected accidents. Good preparation can lower losses to a minimum. How is this preparation work to be carried out?
3. Emergency & First Aid
4. Subsequent protection
Once dangers are under control, but the accident scene is still chaotic, certain risks remain. Which PPE should be provided to the staff?
This workshop will be lead by Mr. WANG Huifei, Associate Professor at Chinese People’s Armed Police Force Academy.
