We can support your emergency planning and preparedess needs in-line with the Process Safety Leadership Group (PSLG) which placed an obligation on high hazard establishments to comply with their recommendations following the Buncefield incident which included engineering against loss of secondary and tertiary containment whilst recognising that priority should be given to preventing loss of primary containment, that adequate secondary and tertiary containment remains necessary for environmental protection and the safety of people.
The inability to contain fuel and fire water run-off at Buncefield contributed significantly to the failure to prevent a major accident to the environment. Planned and organised emergency response measures are likely to significantly reduce the potential duration and extent of fire scenarios and so reduce firewater volumes requiring containment and management.
In addition, the PSLG Emergency Planning Guidance states that scenario based incident specific emergency response plans can identify incident control resources required for fire and emergency response, whilst providing a tool to exercise against, closing the loop from preparation, to planned and exercised response.
The benefits of being prepared for such consequences:
