Employment Medical Advisory Service Act This act amends and complements the Factories Act in relation to medical arrangements. It makes provision for the establishment of an employment medical advisory service and the appointment of employment medical advisers to replace factory doctors. It prescribes their functions and responsibilities in relation to the medical welfare of factory employees. Schedules indicating the provisions of the Factories Act , amendments and repealed sections concerning employment of medical advisers are included. Act The Health and Safety at Work etc. It certainly marked a departure from the framework of prescribed and detailed regulations which was in place at the time. The Act introduced a new system based on less-prescriptive and more goal-based regulations, supported by guidance and codes of practice.
Every operator shall take all measures necessary to prevent major accidents and limit their consequences to persons and the environment. Major accident prevention policy 5. Notifications 6. Review and revision of safety report 8. Off-site emergency plan Review and testing of emergency plans Implementing emergency plans The incident directly killed 56 people and influenced the development of cancer and radiation sickness of hundreds in the subsequent years.
This fact has made the adherence to safety-related instructions as the most highlighted lesson learned regarding to process safety. On July 6, , the backup condensate pump pressure safety valve was removed for routine maintenance.
However, since the maintenance could not be completed within the shift, it was decided to complete the remaining work the next day. As a temporary measure, the condensate pipe was sealed with a blind flange. Communication gaps between different shifts resulted in a catastrophe when the night shift crew unknowingly started the backup condensate pump after the failure of the primary pump.
In just 22 minutes, fire broke out everywhere and the event escalated further because of design and operational flaws resulting in deaths. The Piper Alpha incident was a wakeup call for the offshore industries.
Significant changes in safety practice include development and implementation of safety case regulations in UK, adherence to a permit-to-work system and realistic training for emergency response. The Macondo blowout The Macondo exploration well located in the Gulf of Mexico GoM was drilled by a deep water horizontal semi-submersible rig.
On April 20, , a blowout caused a fire and explosion on the rig that killed 11 employees and caused a major oil spill that continued uncontrolled for 87 days. A series of mechanical failures, lack of human judgment, faulty engineering design and improper team interaction came together to result in the largest oil spill known to mankind. The blowout was the biggest offshore incident in the US and it had a profound impact on safety regulations in the GoM.
As a direct outcome of the Macondo incident, the Drilling Safety Rule regarding wellbore reliability and well control equipment was implemented on October 14, The Modified Workplace Safety Rule was also implemented on October 15, , based on the lessons learned from the Macondo blowout. BP Texas City On March 23, , during the startup of an isomerization unit, the safety relief valves of a distillation tower opened due to overfilling, allowing hydrocarbon liquids to flow into a disposal blowdown drum with a stack, which were also overfilled, resulting in a liquid release.
The evaporation of the hydrocarbons produced a flammable vapor cloud that ignited and led to a series of fires and explosions. It is a management tool to manage risk on-site and a facilitating device for surveillance by the DOSH inspector. In preparation of safety report errors and omission must be avoided so as to comply with the legal requirement 87 2 CIMAH.
Furthermore, it should not be a one off preparation but rather a dynamic safety manual that requires be reviewing or updating continuously. The rationale is that the plants might undergo process modification, or change of work procedures, or surrounding development during the installation life cycle.
Reviewing of the safety report must be carried out every three years or soon after any modification has been made. This major hazard directive is commonly referred to as the Seveso Directive. To prevent major accidents ii. To limit the consequences to people and environment In order to meet the above objectives, a criteria was developed to recognize the installations that pose potential major accidents such as fire, explosion and release of toxic substances.
A hazardous substance is defined in the regulations as toxic, flammable, explosive and oxidizing substance. Above a certain amount or inventory threshold quantity , is believed to be potentially a major accident that threaten the safety and health of workers on-site or to the public surrounding the installation. The Bhopal disaster is an example of a major accident where 2, people lost their lives and , were people injured due to an accident of releasing methyl isocyanate MIC.
Lists of hazardous substances and the threshold quantity are presented in Schedule 1 and 2. The objectives of the safety report are: i.
To identify the nature and scale of the use of dangerous substance at the installation. To give an account of the arrangements for safe operation of the installation, for control of serious deviations that could lead to a major accident and for emergency procedures at the site.
To identify the type, relative likelihood and consequences of major accidents. To demonstrate that the manufacturer has identified the major hazard potential of his activities and has provided appropriate controls. The DOSH requires that the information of the safety report must include: 2 i.
Installation: a map of the site: a scale plan of site showing locations and quantities of hazardous substances; process description and conditions; number of persons on site; nature of land use and population in the vicinity, and the nearest emergency services. Risk Assessment: description of potential sources, conditions and events; diagram to show features for accident control; description of measures taken to prevent, control and minimize the consequences; prevailing meteorological conditions; and consequences to the surroundings in the form of appropriate risk measures.
