Hazards on Big Construction Projects

Graham Marshall - Monday, January 31, 2011
The construction project for the LNG Plant at Prigorodnoye on Sakhalin Island in Russia was the biggest project of its type that I have worked on.

The project scale and the significance and size of the hazards associated with that project was simply amazing. 

Following on from last weeks blog and running over a few posts, I'll upload a few photographs that highlight the scale of work faced on the Russian Project.  It was a simply amazing experience and a great honour to work on the project.

Key hazards included:
  • Natural hazards (particularly low ambient temperature in winter and high temperature in summer);
  • Huge sources of kinetic energy including much movement potential in big equipment, pressurizefd equipment, road transportation, etc;
  • 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); and
  • Electricity.

Natural hazard - very cold conditions

Kinetic Hazards - height potential and movement of equipment
