Safe storage of wood pellet and wood chip fuel
Wood pellets and wood chip biofuel can produce dangerous (toxic) atmospheres in unventilated, enclosed spaces producing carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, and depleting oxygen concentrations. Appropriate controls to control the potential risk are ventilation and restriction of access to unauthorised persons. The stores and their adjacent areas should be assessed to determine if they should be classed as confined spaces. Training and safe working procedures are required. An HSE Safety Notice has increased awareness of the hazard, particularly amongst operators of small wood pellet or wood chip...
Guide sur l'entreposage des produits dangereux dans le secteur manufacturier
L'entreposage sécuritaire des produits dangereux consiste à séparer les produits incompatibles les uns des autres dans le but de limiter l'impact d'un déversement et de réduire les risques d'incendie ou de réactions violentes. Ce document propose une méthode en quatre étapes pour aider à organiser et à mettre en place un plan d'entreposage qui répondra aux principales exigences du Code National de Prévention des Incendies (CNPI), du Règlement sur la santé et la sécurité...
Response of small-scale blackpowder storage in partitioned wooden boxes to external fire
Research has shown that when a partitioned wooden box containing twenty five plastic bottles, each bottle containing 1 kg of blackpowder is exposed to an external wood fire, the bottles of powder do not explode en masse but ignite over a short period of time. Fire resistance times for the specified box design of no less than 8 minutes were observed before blackpowder ignitions started to occur. Following blackpowder ignitions within the wooden box, ejection of full bottles of blackpowder may occur with bottle ejection distances of up to 5 m having been recorded. In the event of an incident involving...
Design optimization of hazardous substance storage facilities to minimize project risk
The storage of dangerous substances is a high risk procedure: a historical analysis revealed that 17% of the major accidents associated with the chemical industry are related to this process. When a storage facility is designed, the investment in safety is not always optimal. The safety measures that are applied are sometimes redundant or ill-maintained. One way to improve safety in a storage facility would be to take advantage of the fact that dividing the mass of dangerous substance results in less catastrophic accidents. In this paper, we present a new method for optimizing the design of storage...
Best Practice Guide for Above-Ground Fuel Storage on Farms
The Department of Labour and the Environmental Risk Management Authority New Zealand (ERMA New Zealand) have produced a joint revision of their previously separate guidelines on safe above-ground fuel storage on farms. Farmers have legal obligations under the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act 1996 in relation to the handling and storage of fuel on farms. In addition, farmers are required to provide a safe place of work under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992. The purpose of this guideline is to assist farmers to evaluate above ground farm fuel storage systems, to ensure...
