 PLANT SAFETY

 By Paul Bowers, Kevin Noakes and Clarence Wynter

 “Process plant site safety — See that hole? Don’t fall into it”

Those two sentences almost sum up the safety instructions we were given some 35 years ago as a junior piping designer working in a refinery. Somewhat more important were the words, “Don’t touch anything.”

We were provided safety glasses (the nerdy type, not the cool-looking ones available today), a construction hat (white in color, so wrench-dropping pipefitters on scaffolding would have an easier target) and purchased our own steel-toed footwear. The scent of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) was in the wind, even at below 1 ppm in air, and piping designers would hang from and crawl on (sometimes icy) pipe racks like kids mountaineering on jungle gyms while juggling clipboards, measuring tapes, plumb bobs and pencils.

Hot water vapor hissed from steam traps, peculiar odors wafted by occasionally and unroped-off excavations for work on underground piping waited for a misstep or stumble. Workers clad in mysterious, head-to-toe white chemical suits and wearing Scott Air-Paks strolled to and from hazardous duty, causing many work trailer-housed, short-term contractors to wonder if they should be breathing filtered air as well.
