3. RESPONSIBILITIES

3.1 Project Manager (IRATA Level 2 OR 3 supervisor)

The Project Manager ensures that all work is performed as per the contract specifications. He
shall be the focal point of contact and the responsible person for all correspondences and co-
ordination in relation to contractual, HSE, quality, and schedule matters as well as the wellbeing
of the deployed manpower for the project works.

3.3 HSE Officer (IRATA level 2 OR 3 supervisor)

The HSE Officer ensures that all the activities are carried out in a safe manner and in
accordance with the local and company standards and regulations. He shall be responsible for
the awareness safety campaigns, coordinate with the client and the company. He shall prepare
safety related documentations regarding all the safety activities at site. He shall give his
comments and suggestions to control the health, wellbeing and environmental related issues at
site. The HSE Officer shall report to the site Manager.

3.4 Rope access technician

Rope Access Technicians shall be responsible for:

 complying fully with all safety regulations, including those laid down in this procedure,
and with the instructions of the Supervisor,
 ensuring that his rope access equipment, and PPE, is personally inspected daily and is
fit for use prior to commencing access work,
 ensuring that any suspect or defective equipment is brought to the attention of the
Supervisor, ensuring that rope access equipment is used properly.

4. RESCUE PROCEDURE

(GUIDING PRINCIPLES)
Rope access teams shall have self-contained rescue capability to recover team members to deck
level or other safe location. Before any team member goes onto the rope access system it is
essential that there is a planned, agreed and viable rescue plan.
Everyone must be clear as to their role in any emergency arrangements.

The guiding principle of any rescue plans and arrangements should be to get the casualty
stabilised, and from their post-fall position at height, to a position of safety on the ground where
proper medical attention can be administered – as quickly and efficiently as possible and without
exposing others to risk.

In other words a rescue must be carried out:

 As quickly as possible, without compromise to safety


 By properly equipped and trained personnel
 To a viable, existing and prepared rescue plan
 With consideration to post-rescue arrangements

Dedicated rope access team rescue equipment will consist of sufficient equipment to perform
the planned rescue scenario, and will normally include the following basic elements in
appropriate quantities:

 Anchor slings
 Karabiners
 Ropes
 Pulleys
 Ascenders
 Descenders
 Back-up devices
 First Aid Kit - appropriate to the size and scope of the operation

Dedicated rescue equipment must not be used for routine access operations. If more equipment
is required for operational or rescue use, this will be separately supplied.

Rigging techniques that allow quick and simple rescue should be considered where appropriate,
particular consideration should be given to “rigging for rescue” techniques, e.g. releasable anchor
systems allowing immediate lowering or raising of a casualty with minimal fuss, complexity or
specialist training. This is particularly appropriate where the Level 3 supervisor is on the ropes.

Project:

HP WASHING OF INTERNAT TANK

Rescuers must ensure their own safety on approaching a casualty or incident site. The nature and
cause of the incident must be established before rescuers presume it is safe to approach.

Detailed consideration, particularly with regard to equipment selection, should be made of


potential 2-person rescue loadings.

For many situations the easiest rescue option will be to lower personnel to ground level, using
gravity to best effect.

In any event the team will be equipped, briefed and ready for any rescue eventuality, including:
lowering, raising, or horizontally transferring the casualty in that order of preference.

Particular attention should be paid to rope lengths with respect to rescue options. Rescue
techniques shall be practised at regular intervals. The practice sessions should also include basic
principles of first aid (opening airways, prevention of excessive blood loss, etc.).

Not all rescues require urgent handling. The necessary time should be taken to implement an
effective response and to execute it professionally. Every care must be taken not to escalate a
situation by taking shortcuts.

a) All personnel working at a height above 2m shall be provided with and wear a full
body harness. The harness will be provided with two (2) synthetic rope lanyards,
which will have a maximum length of 1.6m. The lanyard must be connected to a
suitable anchorage point capable of supporting 5,000lbs. The 100% tie off policy of
the project shall be complied with.

b) A register of the harnesses must be kept and this register shall contain the date of
the last inspection, identification code and location of each harness. Inspection of
the harness will be conducted on a quarterly basis and after every stress.

JOB SPECIFIC RESCUE PROCEDURE

Rescue principle will be rig for rescue or snatch rescue as illustrated below.

5. METHODOLOGY
Page 5 of 8
Project:

HP WASHING OF INTERNAT TANK

Rope Access & Rigging:

I. Anchor points:

a. All selected anchor points to be in accordance with the ICOP (to be selected on
during site visit)
b. Beam clamps will be used for work positioning. Main anchor points will be on
top of silo through top center vent.

II. Rope access system


Page 6 of 8
Project:

HP WASHING OF INTERNAT TANK

a. All access ropes will be cut specifically for the project and loose ends will not be
hanging lower than the maximum clearance of the tunnel
b. Snatch rescue will apply where patient will be lowered by rescuer on pre-rigged
sets of rope

III. Rope access personnel

a. The rope access team will hold JSA, risk assessment and tool box talk prior to
commencing work containing:
i. Anchor point selection considering increased loads due to height
ii. Stretch of ropes due to height of building and dynamic properties of ropes

IV. Tools and equipment

a. All tools and equipment will be tethered to the O-ring on the harness
b. All tethering will be checked on a permanent basis and via “buddy check”

V. Washing of internal roof & side shell

a. All pressure equipment to be checked for loose connections, damaged hoses,


whip checks prior to commencement of HP washing
b. Communication between technicians and ground crew shall be via line of sight
c. Before commencement of activities all equipment’s tethering to be checked for
functionality (buddy check)
d. Personnel to carefully get into working position
e. All equipment/ materials needed for cleaning will be passed to technicians by
supervisor (additional tethering!)
f. Constant monitoring of ground to prevent excess water entering plant or
sensitive equipment

VI. Completion of work

a. On completion of work a final inspection shall be performed and a completion


certificate be issued to acknowledge full completion of work
b. All debris and temporary equipment installed shall be removed from site

6. HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIROMENT

HSE shall be in accordance with all relevant and applicable regulations. This shall be verified prior to
site establishment and commencement of work.
A data pack will be on site with the supervisor accessible to all parties involved
