1) 6" process line vulnerable to vehicle traffic; 2) Solvent spigot not protected; 3) Unsecured gas supply manifold; 4) Building gas manifold not protected from vehicles. Take another look at the photographs - how many hazards can you identify? Barricade posts are often used to prevent vehicular impact with process equipment. In addition, manifold connections should be capped or plugged when not in use to prevent accidental releases. Often the manifold valves will be equipped with locking-handle designs to further prevent accidental opening of the valve, which can lead to a release of process material.

Which do you think are the most severe? Unguarded rotating equipment and improper use of a ladder would typically result in an injury to one person, whereas an oxygen-deficient atmosphere in a confined space can result in multiple fatalities. What can you do to eliminate or mitigate the hazard? Confined space entry should involve continuous monitoring of the atmosphere for sufficient oxygen and hazardous contaminants, along with the use of air-movers, external hole-watches and possible self-contained breathing apparatus.

What types of consequences can occur by the three different hazards pictured above? For example, confined spaces can contain oxygen-deficient atmospheres, which can lead to multiple fatalities for those inside the vessel. Which do you think are the most severe? Unguarded rotating equipment and improper use of a ladder would typically result in an injury to one person, whereas an oxygen-deficient atmosphere in a confined space can result in multiple fatalities. What can you do to eliminate or mitigate the hazard?
