Mitigating the risks of FLNG processes
With proper handling, LNG can be stored, distributed and dispensed in a safe and efficient way throughout the supply chain. Organisations must employ strict safety measures such as risk assessments, training and PPE.
Here are 4 strategies that companies can implement to help keep FLNG facilities safe:
Flange Management Tags
A highly visible status checklist for each step of the flange break process is provided by Flange Tags. These have perforated sections that can be removed as part of the multi-part Tag, making sure that all steps are completed during flange management processes. This is essential for achieving 100% leak-free start-ups.
There are numbered sections on the flange checklist tag. This indicates that each step has been completed and can be used as an effective way of tracking the process for operatives.
Drop Prevention Equipment
According to the HSE statistics, falls account for more than 30% of all fatal injuries at work. That’s why organisations need to carefully select the high-risk zones where equipment may fall onto operatives. Once identifying the zones, companies can install drop mat equipment to prevent serious injuries.
Drop prevention mats such as the XDROP Mat prevent dropped objects from falling through grated flooring and open handrails in workspaces. It catches small tools, bolts and other items that could drop through the grid. It is fire retardant and made of a premium mesh material, which reduces the risk of wind or water accumulation, as it lets wind and liquids pass through.
The XDROP mat can be folded for use in confined workspaces and secured up handrails where needed, thanks to the placement of the marine grade fastenings.
A compact carry bag that can be stored and transported on site is included in the XDROP Kit. The user can have free hands to use both handrails when climbing stairs and on deck, because the carry bag has padded shoulder straps. The bag’s construction also has an integrated kneeling pad to assist the user when working on the hard grating areas.
