Oil & Gas Safety - The Role of Air Sampling in Developing the Health and Safety Plan for Emergency Response
Catastrophic events involving oil and gas often result in a greater potential for inhalation exposures for responding workers and unsuspecting off-site receptors. Dr. Bullock will describe the critical role that an air monitoring plan (AMP) plays in the identification of the exclusion zone, as well as the necessary personal protective equipment to control exposures during response and mediation activities.
This Webinar will present strategies for the quantitative assessment of chemical hazards that are anticipated during oil and gas emergencies for the purpose of assisting the site Safety Officer develop the Health and Safety Plan (HASP). Real-time air monitoring instrumentation and integrated air sampling methodologies will be discussed along with predictive air dispersion modeling capabilities. A brief review of the applicable exposure guidelines and standards will be presented. Dr. Bullock will also share actual experiences of the development and implementation of a HASP and doing air monitoring during oil and gas fires. In addition, Dr. Bullock will examine the types of resources called on by the industry sector to assess human health risk during an oil and gas emergency.
