A detail assessment was conducted at above facilities to see the pulse of the facilities against HSE legal laws. Most of the facilities were in satisfactory condition, however areas of improvement needs to be worked to make the facilities 100% legal compliance.
HSE Team, in coordination with Operations department, has arranged monitoring of hydrocarbon vapors specially Benzene concentration at PMG loading / unloading facilities at Machike & Keamari A Terminals through Consultant. The activity will help PSO officials to identify & minimize impacts from organic vapors. The same will be replicated to other PSo locations as well.

HSE Team has revised Work Permitting System. In this regard job specific work permits as “electrical, civil & excavation, painting, lifting, confined space entry, hot and cold” works are developed to ensure safe work practices.
HSE Team has developed Energy Isolation Procedure to control hazardous release of energy for individual(s) who will be working, inspecting or testing any piece of equipment, piping or any other part of facility. The purpose of this document is to define a procedure for safe isolation and reinstatement of plant/ equipment from all sources & forms of energy.
