Organizations in general are vulnerable to emergency situation, i.e. critical infrastructure is prone to man-made hazards. An emergency even could arise either due to fault in internal organization operations or from external sources. As a result, emergency need could range from a small first-aid incident to multiple deaths to property damage. In these cases, attempt should be mitigating impact arising due to incidents or circumstances leading to injury and illness. Therefore, planning is essential to deal with possible emergencies. Thus, the need of emergency management system arises, which is nothing but a pre-designed system to deal with hazards in the form of rescuing, restoring, and mitigating the effects.

Moreover, large-scale emergencies require well-coordinated response and management. As per OSH standard, there should be a written emergency action plan to deal with any unforeseen eventualities. Therefore, it becomes onus of the employer to review plans periodically while keeping into cognizance of employees. NIST develops tailor-made emergency management system involving:

  • Identification of hazard that could lead to possible hazard
  • Identification of activities to respond to emergency situation
  • Introduction of risk assessment measures to control or eliminate identified risks
  • Escape procedures with designated escape routes
  • Procedure for shutting down critical plant operations
  • Spill control procedures if any
  • Search and emergency rescue procedures
  • Emergency response to deal with hazardous materials

Organizations are increasingly aware of ensuring a working environment free from occupational injuries and fatalities, as they add no values to productivity. Thus, safety remains a concern for every organization and any workplace incident yields in unreliable workflow. As per the report of National Safety Council, majorities of illness and injuries in workplace are due to issue of human behavior. This reflects the importance of employee behavior is critical in attaining improved safety standards, which is feasible through behavior based safety intervention. In this regard, the emphasis is on behavior based safety having aim to improve safety through integration of behavioral science and organizational principles with safety management to reduce incidences of injuries.

Though, behavior based safety has got wider acceptance across industries, yet the result seems to be elusive as adapting to meet the needs of workplace environment has not been effective. Actually, implementing behavior based safety programs require constant guidance of experts. Another aspect is that policies and signs may be instrumental in directing behavior, but don't motivate safe behavior. To deal with these kinds of issues, NIST provides excellent behavior based consultancy services involving:

  • Safety observation processes (identify critical behavior, change unsafe behavior, recognize at-risk behavior)
  • Explanation to employees one-to-one basis regarding their behavior
  • Review the consequences of unsafe behavior

Every industry comes with a huge set of associated risks, with Oil and Gas/ Petrochemicals/ Refineries and major chemical industries are vulnerable. Risk factors are high particularly for the larger size companies involved in more Unit operations.

Risks are mainly to Personnel , environment, Assets and reputation.

Most of the chemical industries major disasters are attributed to various factors such as

Bigger the size of operations, more the number of variables and third party elements exponentially increasing the risk factors. The risks are spread across economy, personnel, environment, equipment, production and efficiency.

Every major disaster in history can be attributed a simple element overlooked during the course of the plant operation

Most of the chemical industrial accidents are due to the failure of control and Safety system. Failure of the Safety system is caused by poor specification/ design/ installation/ Operation and maintenance and changes during operation.

 

Why do organisation prefer to do SIL studies? PSM Requirement clause:

Process Safety Management(PSM) section of the OSHA standard OSHA 29 CFR Part1910.119 requires organizations to provide assurance of the mechanical integrity of all their emergency shutdown systems and safety critical controls.

Safety Life cycle (SLC)

Safety Life cycle concept is the fundamental tool of managing the application of Safety instrumented systems as by the international standards IEC 61508 which is an umbrella for all sectors and IEC61511 which is process Sector specific.

Safety Instrumented Systems ( SIS)

The purpose of a safety instrumented system (SIS) is to reduce the risk that a process may become hazardous to a tolerable level. This is done by reducing the likelihood of the risk.

What is SIL (Safety integrity limit)?

SIL is a discrete level (one out of a possible four) for specifying the probability of a safety instrumented system. For Process Sector it is SIL 1 to SIL 3.

The amount of risk reduction that an SIS can provide is represented by its safety integrity level (SIL), which is defined as a range of probability of failure on demand.

What are the benefits of implementing Safety Life cycle as part of PSM implementation?

Identify the hazards at the concept stage and evaluate the consequence there by Helps the organisation to take decisions at the design stage achieves loss prevention and reduction in cost.

Significant cost saving in potential financial loss due to Asset damage and business interruption.

By adapting to IEC 61511 , uniform global design criteria is met.

Enables the organisation to carry out cost benefit analysis to make suitable long term decisions

Many national regulators such as OSHA/ UK/Middle east started referring to this standard
