Gas leaks in India & Value of preventive safety measures


“If you want the present to be different from the past, study the past.”

Need for learning

Learning is the process that improves the potential of a person or company that is achieved in different modes. Out of all these modes, the two efficient ways of learning are performed by proper training and by past experiences. It could be applicable to any individual person to giant organisations.Industries which retreat from this habit should encounter the unavoidable failures even though sincere efforts are implemented for growth. The recent research reports of safety failures especially gas leaks from various industries across India indicates the negligence of this fact.

The recent gas leaks in India

  • 475 school students along with 9 teachers were hospitalized due to leakage of poisonous gas Chloro (methyl) diphensylsilance from a container depot in Tughlaqabad in Delhi.
  • 25 people were affected by leakage of Chlorine gas from a water treatment plant in Hassan District in Karnataka State.
  • 8 people suffered serious injuries by the explosion of Ammonia gas chamber in Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh State.
  • 10 people admitted in hospital due to Ammonia gas leaks from a barge in Champakkara, near Kochi.
  • 6 people suffered from asphyxiation due to gas leakage from a blast furnace of the plant in Rourkela in Odisha State.

What experts to say

The prominent Experts in India stresses the factor that the industries are not learnt any lesson from the well-known Bhopal gas tragedy which happened in Union Carbide India Ltd (UCIL) in 1984 due to the leakage of methyl Isocyanates (MIC).The analysis of this incident reveals that the reasons for this tragedy were poor maintenance of the plant, lack of effective safety systems in the plant and negligence in safety management.

The experts also say that the workers are not trained effectively to use the safety devices at the time of emergency and to overcome this issue, they suggest, managements has to take steps to conduct safety training programmes periodically.Eventhough 32 years moved on form Bhopal incident, we encounter the issue of gas leaks all over India at everytime.This is the outcome of not giving the importance to study the past incidents and not implementing the appropriate preventive measures on time.

Lessons to be learnt

“Prevention is better than cure”

  • Industries must implement safety management systems as per standards.
  • Workers must be educated about the safety measures and to use the safety devices effectively.
  • Safety awareness programs and prevention methods in specific to the industry’s manufacturing should be conducted including the authorities concerned and to the public around the industry.
  • Refresher safety training should be given to safety professionals repeatedly as researches argue that after 12 months only 50% of knowledge remains in the memory of the candidates after training.

Role of Safety Institutes

Safety oriented organizations learn from accidents by analyzing the data collected immediately after the incidents and revise the policies and procedures to be implemented in the future. The Training institutes has the challenge to  produce safety  professionals who knows the systematic approach to analyze the incidents thoroughly and capability to provide  recommendations to reconsider the policies based on safety concerns. Ultimately, Aristotle says that

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit”

NIST is the leading safety institute in India has the commitment to produce safety professionals with analytical skills in line with our mission of contributing to the safety to the world and providing safety training to the workers and executives to attain the accident- free world.

World Earth Day


UNESCO has chosen the most required theme for the 22nd April 2017 World Earth Day as “Climate Literacy and Environment”.  Earth is one of the precious natures’ gift for living beings to survive and decorate the life.

earth-day

 

  • Are we protecting the earth?
  • Are we conserving water?
  • Do we plant enough trees?
  • Don’t we pollute the environment?
  • Do we endure the weather?

If the answer is yes, we are worth living in the planet, if not we have to seriously contemplate and action on this. Environmental practitioners, HSE specialists and other relevant authorities from national and international bodies involved in raising awareness to protect the environment. Dr Abdul Kalam strongly emphasized for planting trees to have sufficient water for future generation.

Drastic drought, hurricanes, cyclones, Tsunamis, earthquakes and change in monsoon are due to the pollution happened across land, water and air. Heat stroke, heat wave and heat stress are unusual due to ecological modification. This give raise to various diseases and affect the healthy survival of human beings to living things in land, water and air.

It is acceptable that many multi-national companies, governmental and non-governmental organisations come forward in various eco-friendly activities. ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan – Clean India Movement is an excellent initiation from the government in 2014. However the implementation is the major challenge as it is the responsibility of every individual to protect the mother earth for healthy and safe living.

People or organisation involved in deforestation, pesticides, hazardous chemical spillage in land and water have spoilt the environmental cycle results in major life threat and existence of the planet. Audit, inspection and review from relevant authorities with strong enforcement of penalties, punishment will protect the country and planet from further impairment.

This is the right time to take an oath to protect the ‘Mother Earth’ where we can implement as individual, schools, colleges, organisations and public to support the UNESCO initiatives for such wonderful cause.

Why to choose Safety (HSE) as a career?

September 26, 2015 Leave a comment

People are attracted to trends, technologies & fashion. Then why to choose safety as a career?

The fundamental need for human beings are food, water and shelter. Are we satisfied with the quality of food, water and environment? Pollution, scarcity, pesticides etc. etc.,

In recent days people are more focusing into raising awareness to

  • Protect the environment (Plant trees, rain water harvesting, safe use on water)
  • Eliminate the contaminants (organic farming, organic foods, no pesticides)
  • Control measures for pollutants (Automobile emission, industry emission, waste management)

Every human being is responsible and accountable to protect themselves and the environment. If so one needs to be aware, alert and action plan. In a similar fashion any employer needs to protect the people, equipment, material and environment. Here comes the role of HSE professional to responsibly safeguard themselves and an organisation as a whole in the given working condition.

What to study?

Along with the basic educational qualification, one need to develop the CPD’s to meet the challenging needs of industry requirements & updates. In order to meet the demands, NEBOSH Diploma in Occupational safety & health is level 6 U.K graduation preferred by senior management and mangers of an organisation. This is followed by NEBOSH IGC course to have reasonable entry in HSE career for middle managers and junior level. There are few fundamental and mandatory safety courses like managing the work safely, Risk Assessment, Fire Safety and First Aid are also preferred for beginners. The safety courses studied provide sound foundation to accomplish the tasks effectively and efficiently.

Why to invest in Safety courses?

For Employee

  • Work in line with organizational requirements & legal compliance
  • Reduction in the probability of accidents and human errors
  • Increase in skills, knowledge and efficiency
  • Job satisfaction & further progression

For Employer

  • To meet the legal compliance
  • Improved morale and reputation
  • Reduction in insurance premiums because of accidents and human errors

Increase in productivity and quality of work which will increase in reputation
