Pictorial HIRAC: A concept of incident prevention in oil and gas process Industry

Chetan Patle and Nihal Anwar Siddiqui

University of Petroleum & Energy Studies Dehradun

Abstract

Oil and gas process industry is the most hazardous industry as it contains flammable, volatile liquids and gases. Accidents are happening worldwide and major cause is the communication gap. Workers face difficulties in reading written documents of risk assessments available at the company. If workers are not given proper training on reading these risk assessment sheets, then it is useless. To avoid such communication gap, I want to introduce a new technique which is called Pictorial HIRAC through this paper. HIRAC is abbreviated as Hazard Identification Risk Assessment and Control is a qualitative risk assessment approach to minimize all possible hazards and their associated risks in the work environment. It is an all new generation idea of converting a normal ‘written HIRAC’ into the ‘Pictorial’ form. Hazards Identification is also one of the fourteen pillars of PSM Process Safety Management where it is termed as Process Hazard Analysis. It is well understood that visual is better than written because it leaves 70 percent faster impressions than reading. Illustration by pictures can be easily understood by the workers. Through this paper we want to convey an idea of making Pictorial HIRAC for creating more awareness about the workplace safety.
