3 EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
3.1 H2S Gas Leak
Hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S) handling is one of the most deadly occupational hazards. When H2S gas is inhaled, it is rapidly absorbed by the lungs into the blood, which initially induces rapid breathing. This is followed by respiratory inactivity. At higher concentration, H 2S exerts an immediate paralyzing effect on the respiratory centers. Death due to asphyxia is a certain outcome, unless artificial respiration is promptly provided. This sequence of events represents the most important toxic effect of H2S. Hydrogen sulfide in low concentrations is easily recognized by its characteristic foul odor similar to rotten eggs. However, continued exposure will temporarily deaden ones ability to smell the gas. This leads to the person believing that the gas is gone when probably it is still there. Therefore, a person should always check with the gas detectors for actual gas concentration in the atmosphere. To determine the presence of H2S at the Central Building. PPEs must be maintained in good working condition and made available at all times. These include self-contained air breathing apparatus (SCABA), half mask respirators, safety glasses, safety gloves, safety boots, safety shoes, and water washing equipment. The mask must have good fit with all face types.

3.6 Traffic Accidents


Hazardous materials can cause unreasonable risks to health, safety or property when transported. Unreasonable risk covers a broad spectrum of health, fire and environmental considerations. These substances include Sulfuric Acid and Methanol. Sulfuric Acid (H 2SO4) is the main acid utilized in the HPAL operations of CBNC. To haul this acid from Pier Area to the Plant site are RTNMC personnel assigned as drivers for sulfuric acid lorries. Likewise, CBNC utilizes Methanol in its H2S Plant. Accidents during the transport of these substances will be controlled when there is sufficient knowledge and adequate preparation in handling these materials. The Sulfuric Acid Lorry and Methanol Truck drivers must be well trained and must demonstrate competence in responding to any accidents, which may occur during the transport of these chemicals. A dump truck loaded with limestone serves as escort for both acid and methanol lorries.

3.9.3 CONDITIONS THAT WILL CALL FOR A DAM EMERGENCY


3.9.3.1 Heavy leachate seen coming out at the toe of the dam

a. Possible Cause 1 Hazard from weak foundation: The soil or rock at shallow depth below the dam has become too weak to support the dam, movement along a failure plane will occur. This may result in partial or complete failure of the dam. b. Possible Cause 2 Piping Piping occurs, if seepage within or beneath the embankment causes erosion along its flow path. Excessive piping may result in local or general failure of the embankment. 3.9.3.2 Discovery of cracks, slumping or gullies on: 1) the tailings beach, 2) the dam crest, or 3) the tailings dam embankment a. Possible cause 1 Hazard from earthquakes o Upstream tailings dams are known to have very poor properties during earthquakes. During cyclic mechanical stress, as experienced during earthquakes, the tailings slurries (including the material used for the dam) may liquefy. b. Possible cause 2 Bad construction on the portion of the dam o Quality assurance program for the technology and materials used, and for the construction process were problematical. c. Possible cause 3 Heavy Rains / Flooding and erosion of the slopes o Heavy and continuous rainfall could initiate erosion of the slopes and crest of the dam.

o Check all places where the source can hide from view. Look through trash, scrap, dumping areas, trucks and rail roads cars. 4. Continue a diligent search until the regulatory agency directs otherwise. 5. Response to vessel access while the source is ON 1. ARSHO will advise personnel to get out near the radioactive source. 2. ARSHO will determine how much time they spent in the tank and at what distance from the radioactive source. 3. RSHO/ARSHO will calculate their exposure either by measuring the radiation field in the tank or by using the equation. 4. RSHO/ARSHO will look up the activity and the isotope in the records and check on the label on the source holder. Remember to take the shielding of walls or wells into consideration; also, source decay may reduce the activity of the isotope. 5. RSHO/ARSHO will coordinate with General Affairs to arrange for medical examinations if the exposure is greater than 250,000 Sv / hr (25,000 mRem / hr), if he cannot determine the exposure or if the worker is concerned about his dose. 6. RSHO/ARSHO will notify the PNRI if anyone has received a dose greater than any allowable limit. A.4 Response to Source Holder Fall or Collision 1. The discoverer will immediately inform the Shift Foreman that the radioactive source holder had fall/damaged due to collision. 2. The Shift Foreman will then inform the Production Manager who will then inform the RSHO, ARSHO and the plant Manager. 3. The ARSHO will immediately proceed to the area bringing with him the radioactive survey meter to check the radiation levels in the area.

4. The ARSHO will survey the source holder to check if the radiation pattern is normal. The radiation profile should measure less than 50 Sv / hr (5 mRem / hr) at 30 cm (5 inches) from the unit with shutter closed (OFF). 5. The ARSHO will compare this reading with the installation survey and occupancy evaluation to determine if the reading is normal. 6. If the survey is normal, the shielding around the source is probably not damaged. Continue the following steps. 7. Ensure that the shutter on/off mechanism is functioning properly. If it is, lock it OFF. Make sure that the radiation beam is pointed away from you and others. 8. If the shutter cannot be turned to the OFF position, block the opening with shielding material and call Ohmart for Help. 9. ARSHO will check for possible radioactive leakage by leak testing the unit. o Check for gross contamination after wiping by taking the sealed baggie with the swab enclosed to an area away from the source. o Use a survey meter to see if there is radiation field around the baggie. o If there is, this means that some of the radioactive material has been picked up by the swab and is emitting radiation. 10. Contain the contamination. Every effort should be made to prevent spreading the contamination any farther. 11. If the radiation pattern is within prescribed limits, the source shutter mechanism is operating properly, and there is no evidence of radioactive material leakage, then the unit can return to service. 12. However, if it appears that there has been damage to the lead shielding, regard the unit as having a radiation field present above allowable limits. 13. Cordon off and mark the area with radiation hazard signs at 20 Sv / hr (2 mRem / hr) level, or approximately 3 5m (9.8 16.4 ft). If a survey meter is not available, calculate the distance where the field intensity is 20 Sv / hr (2 mRem / hr), based on the records of the activity and type of source.

14. The ARSHO will obtain names of the potentially exposed individuals. 15. The RSHO or ARSHO will call the PNRI immediately and notify them about the situation. For record keeping, write down the name of the person at the agency whom you spoke. 16. RSHO/ARSHO will then contact Ohmart or PNRI to arrange for safe removal, packaging, and shipment of the source holder. If permitted, place shielding materials around the source holder to decrease radiation levels. A.5 Response in case of Fire. 1. The discoverer of the Fire will immediately inform the DCS operator of the condition and location of the fire. 2. The DCS operator after confirming with the caller of the fire incident will immediately inform the Shift Superintendent and announces thru the paging system of the fire incident for the immediate information of all concerned. 3. The Shift Superintendent will then inform the Production Manager and the Production Manager will inform the Plant Manager who is Head of the Emergency Response Team. 4. The Shift Superintendent upon the instruction of the Plant Manager will activate the Fire Brigade Team and with the necessary fire fighting equipments proceeds to the scene and combat fire. 5. The Production Manager will inform the RHSO/ARHSO that the fire involves the radioactive devices. 6. The RHSO/ARHSO upon learning the information from the Production Manager proceeds to the scene of the fire and informs the members of the Fire Brigade Team that radioactive devices are involve in the fire. Using a survey meter, he will then check the radioactivity in the area.

7. The area will be cordoned/barricaded about 5m from the radiation source and a radiation safety sign installed to prevent entry of unauthorized personnel who might be exposed to radiation. 8. After the fire has been put off or controlled assessment of the fire damage to the radioactive devices will be done by the RHSO/ARHSO. 9. Assessing Fire Damage A. If you do not have a fireproof source holder, assume that the lead shielding has melted: o Place a survey meter on the highest scale and approach the unit with caution o Compare the readings to the radiation profiles as measures in the initial installation survey, then proceed to the next step 6. If the radiation profile is measured in the initial survey: o Check the shutter mechanism for proper functioning o Leak test the source holder for removable contamination o Examine the source holder environment for: any damage to the mounting structure (bolts, brackets) replacement of insulation or cooling system if such was supplied 7. If the radiation field is above normal limits: o Cordon off and mark the area with radiation hazard sign at the 20 Sv / hr reading. o Record names of personnel who may receive an exposure dosage. (If the employee wants a medical examination, or if you are in doubt as to exposure level, arrange for medical examination) o Contact Ohmart or PNRI for assistance in removal, packaging and disposal of the unit. o Leak test the unit for possible contamination. (A typical Cs-137 or Co-60 source capsule should withstand a temperature of at least 1475

3.11.5 WARNING AND NOTIFICATION Following an earthquake the Head of ERT will immediately notify the members of the Emergency Response Teams. Employees will be notified through the paging system advising what precautions to take during and after an earthquake. Activation of the plan in the event of an earthquake will be by the Head of the ERT or in his absence the Sub-head. 3.11.6 PLANNING ASSUMPTIONS Since it is difficult to classify earthquakes by their damaging effects and response required therefore development of this plan will be based on the following assumptions: Earthquakes respond without warning therefore pre-event response activities would not be possible. A damaging earthquake will cause large number of deaths and injuries and extensive damage to or destruction of buildings, emergency facilities and infrastructures. The earthquake will strike without any warning and maximum casualties will occur. Secondary effects of earthquake will include all or any of the following; Tsunami, Fire, Flood, Landslides, Dam Failure and release of hazardous and toxic chemicals. Strong aftershocks will continue for several days. Access will be severely restricted due to debris, landslides, collapsed bridges and aerial support will be needed 3.11.7 EMERGENCY OPERATIONAL RESPONSE
