has the potential to cause injury, ill health, or
damage to person(s) property or the environment.
In a processing plant we have the following types
3. Radiation: from NORMS in wells and welding
High exposure to sunlight/ultraviolet rays
Temperature extremes – hot when working
with boilers and cold when working with
cryogenic liquids such as processed LNG.
Constant loud noise
Electricity from any source (Power Generation)
within the plant or working area.
Travel – accidents when travelling to work site
due to fatigue.
4. Liquids like cleaning products, drilling mud
chemicals, paints, acids, solvents – ESPECIALLY
if chemicals are in an unlabeled container!
Vapors and fumes that come from welding or
