Example text

How near is 'near enough'? Attenuation Attenuation is one of the methods of achieving inherently safer design. If we have to use or store large quantities of hazardous materials then we should use or store them, whenever possible, in the least hazardous form. For example, some dyestuffs, which form explosive dusts, can be handled as slurries and liquefied gases (such as chlorine or ammonia) can be stored refrigerated at low pressure rather than under pressure at ambient temperatures. When the pressure is low the leak rate through a hole of a given size will be small and because the temperature is low there will be httle evaporation.

Hence managers at all levels should carry out a certain amount of auditing as part of their job. They may wish to set aside special periods of time or elect to keep their eyes open as they go round the plant on their normal visits. It does not matter, so long as they do it. However, when we talk about safety auditing we are usually thinking of special audits carried out by a team or an individual from outside the plant who spends a few days or even a few weeks on the job. A typical team might include a professional auditor, someone from another plant, a safety professional, and an expert on the hazards involved.

And it will be relaxation rather than work. 1. W S Sykes, Essays on the First hundred Years of Anaesthesia, Vol. II, Churchill Livingstone, Edinburgh, 1960, 1982 Analysis The most widely used safety analysis instrument is probably the combustible gas detector. Permanently mounted instruments are used for detecting leaks of flammable gas or vapour and portable instruments are used for checking that none is present before work with fire is carried out or a confined space is entered. ) However, conditions can change and so it is better to use a portable gas detector alarm than rely on a single test before a job is started.
