individuals. The minimum investigation team make up should be:
- Team Leader; usually the supervisor of the area involved in the incident.
- Employees and contractors knowledgeable in the work activities associated with
the incident.
- Client’s HSE Representative trained in Root Cause Analysis or Tap Root.
1. Measurement of safety Performance:
Total Recordable Case Rate (TRCR) = Total number of injuries and illnesses *
1.000.000/Employee hours worked
Days of restricted work and job transfers (DART) = (Number of days away from work
cases + number of on-job transfer or restriction cases times)*1.000.000 / Exposure
Frequency rate (TF1) = number of accident with stop of work more than 24 hours*
1.000.000 / Number of hours worked by all employees
Serious rate (TG) = lost days * 1.000 / Numbers of hours worked by all employees
(See exhibit 4: Safety Performance Report)
2. HSE weekly meeting
HSE Agenda shall be discussed in the Weekly Project Progress Meetings between
the project management and Client representative.
In line with its policy, STICC will strive to contribute to the environmental
sustainability by:
- The minimization and consumption of materials such as electricity and water by
having well maintained equipment and educating the workforce on energy
conserving practices
- The implementation and promotion of recycling schemes for paper, cardboard,
wood and Plastic bottles
The prevention of pollution is adopted by minimizing emissions, discharges and
wastes to a practicable minimum to ensure that STICC complies with the
requirements of the applicable Environmental Law.
Doc N°0012-HSE
A. Response to Environmental Emergencies
For every potential environmental emergency, systems are in place to PREVENT the
emergency event in the first instance.
Spills: Most inorganic chemicals are toxic to some degree and many give off fumes
and vapours that are harmful or unpleasant. Organic liquids are often flammable and
volatile as well, so that if a spill occurs there is also the potential for fire and
explosion, fumes or vapours with their associated risks as well as containment and
control of the spillage.
If a spillage occurs the following actions must be followed to ensure a quick and fast
- Where possible isolate the insulation source to stop the flow of product.
- Where necessary evacuate or cordon off the area - remember to consider wind
direction and effect.
- Establish exactly what material has been spilt, from review of the Safety Data
- Contain the spill as much as possible, using absorbent pads or booms to clean up if
it is safe to do so. Emergency Response Equipment must be stored in the
Maintenance Warehouse and available upon request.
- Notify your Supervisor who will contact the necessary Key Personnel. If there is a
risk of toxic fumes or liquid the Supervisor should contact the Emergency Services
- It is an offence to discharge effluent down any drainage system. The waste must
be disposed off in accordance with all current legislation and regulations.
- Incidents must be recorded in line for Incident Investigation and Reporting.
Critical factors which must be assessed in order to respond appropriately to any spill
- Location of spill – on or near controlled waters, or with the potential to find a
pathway to controlled waters through drainage, soakaway or other discharge point)
- Product spilled – is the product stable and easily contained and recovered, or will it
disperse (into air or water) quickly before it can be contained and cleaned up?
Does the product have potential to cause a more serious incident
- Availability of clean-up material (the appropriate clean-up material should in
accordance with product safety data sheet)
B. Environmental Effects of Responses to Health and Safety Emergencies
Actions taken to respond to emergencies such as fire or explosion may have a
secondary effect on the environment. Examples include:
- Run-off from contaminated firewater
- Discharge of foam or powder
- Discharge of CO2
- Debris from fire or explosion
In these situations, the safety and health of the human population will
ALWAYS take precedence, and actions to mitigate or control emergency
events will take priority over any potential environmental effects.
Doc N°0012-HSE
Whilst recognising the precedence of the avoidance of harm to the human
population, wherever practicable, steps should be taken to minimise the potential for
environmental damage as a result. These measures may include:
- containment of contaminated water from discharge to controlled waters
- recovery of fire fighting material (particularly foam or powder), especially where this
may have been discharged into controlled waters
- Appropriate waste disposal of debris.
C. Emergency Preparedness and Response
Where a clear and imminent danger of injury to people or damage to property exists,
personnel shall immediately notify their superiors regarding the condition. Project
engineers, Supervisors, Foremen and HSE Adviser shall take all necessary
precautions to protect the employees while at the same time immediately notifying
the project manager.

implement a risk assessment for the following conditions:
1) First Time activities / jobs
