Powering your Safety Management Needs for Land, Wind, & Pipeline
Industrial worksites present a variety of dangers and challenges with respect to employee safety and the environment. Organizations must take action to stay in compliance with strict HSE (Health, Safety, and Environment) standards set forth by OSHA. Navigating these regulations for different applications, however, can be cumbersome.
That’s why at Pharma-Safe Industrial Services, our highly-trained and certified HSE professionals specialize in providing tailored solutions that meet your safety goals for various applications in the industrial sector. In this blog, we will highlight the most prevalent risks associated with land, wind and pipeline operations, and how Pharma-Safe is primed to mitigate them.
In this growing industry, the primary risks for wind power production are related to slips, trips and falls when working at great heights on cranes and wind turbines. There are also risks present when working in confined spaces, such as claustrophobia and exposure to gasses like SF6.
Ensuring your workers have proper fitting harnesses and conducting routine equipment inspections on fall arrest systems and lanyards are critical in preventing disasters. In addition, enrolling your team in safety training like our Fall Protection and Confined Spaces courses will help them better identify dangerous conditions and avoid potential accidents.
Pipelines carry liquids and gasses that can be extremely deadly and damaging to the environment if not contained properly . This is especially true if it’s a submarine pipeline along the seafloor. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Gulf of Mexico alone has over 26,000 miles of oil and gas pipeline running along the bottom of the ocean, so having an air-tight safety plan in place is crucial in protecting our navigable waters and shorelines.
Pharma-Safe’s Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasures (SPCC) program offers comprehensive plans tailored to your unique operations, equipment and geographic features to prevent discharge that could lead to a catastrophic event. Our team has decades of experience successfully preventing oil spills and developing countermeasures at the sign of a threat—keeping your operations flowing and securely contained.
Much like the pipeline industry, the majority of industrial land operations involve working with hazardous substances. Whether it be the loading dock at the port or the post-production storage facility, the risk to life, property and planet are rife. With effective safety processes and protocols in place, you can avoid loss of equipment stability, structural damage or even an explosion.
Our highly-trained and certified HSE Consultants are skilled in developing robust Process Safety Management (PSM) plans that are compliant with OSHA’s storage and handling regulations for hazardous substances. From material placement to transportation standards, we can drastically improve team accountability and decision-making skills to better avoid chemical and fire reactions.
Given the variety of potential risks inherent to industrial operations, it pays to have a highly-trained partner on your side. Pharma-Safe Industrial Services has the solutions and expertise to fulfill every possible compliance and safety management need for your worksite and your team.
