Big Construction Project Hazards

Graham Marshall - Thursday, February 17, 2011
Following on the theme of hazards on big construction sites, I'll upload a few photographs taken during my time on Sakhalin that highlight the scale of work faced on the Sakhalin Energy LNG Build. 

Assisting with hazard and risk management on a project of that size was a simply amazing experience.

Because of the scale and size of the project, all the hazard types were present and all needed to be constantly managed:
  • Huge sources of kinetic energy including much movement potential in big equipment, pressurized equipment, road transportation, etc;
  • Bio-mechanical hazard associated with lots of manual work in demanding conditions;
  • Natural hazards (particularly low ambient temperature in winter and high temperature in summer);
  • Biological hazards (particularly mozzies but also bears, HIV and Hep C virus, etc);
  • Psycho-social hazard associated with work crew being away from home for long periods;
  • Hazardous substances (many types);
  • Radiation sources; and
  • Electrical hazards.

Kinetic hazards associated with road transport of big bits of kit.

The key message every day!

So many hazards to manage!
