PROCESS SAFETY PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS

PROJECT 1: Lost Control Program Improvement for an Exploration and Production Water Recycling Company

Timely and knowledgeable consultation and training rapidly improved the loss control program of a progressive Exploration and Production water recycling company.

Landmark provided strategic consultation and training services to improve the loss control program (LCP) for a progressive Exploration and Production water recycling company. The company is one of a few oil & gas service providers that recycles used production water from wells and has facilities in Colorado and Wyoming.

Landmark conducted expedited site visits at each facility to evaluate each safety program and identify critical safety issues that should be addressed immediately. Facility operations included treatment, recycling, and onsite field recycling services. Landmark provided technical reviews and substantial technical editing of the company’s Loss Control Manual (LCM), including preparation of new sections providing guidance to assist facility staff with Occupational Safety and Health Administration inspections.

 

Enhancement of more than 30 individual programs was successfully accomplished within established time frames through effective collaboration with multiple stakeholders within the company’s organization. Landmark also prepared a Health and Safety (H&S) Training Plan and materials to include in the updated LCM and provided H&S training for company employees.

PROJECT 2: Comprehensive Environmental, Health, and Safety Program Development for a Pharmaceutical Industry Facility

Landmark provided comprehensive, practical, and timely consultation to bring this pharmaceutical facility into Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) compliance.

Landmark provided expert technical assistance in the development and implementation of a comprehensive EHS program for a pharmaceutical facility that manufactures Schedule 1 narcotics. This three-year project was performed during the merger/acquisition of the facility and included improvements to the Facility Safety Manual and process health and safety protocols.

Services provided included personnel exposure assessment monitoring, ongoing process safety evaluations, and a thorough regulatory status evaluation of air, water, hazardous materials/waste, and safety compliance.  Permitting exceptions were identified, and close regulatory agency coordination brought the facility into compliance. Annual chemical inventories and reporting were streamlined. An Emergency Response Plan and training program were developed, and inventory control systems were established to readily identify reportable quantities.

Based on the quantity of hazardous waste generated, the facility was operated and classified as a large quantity generator. Wastes not considered hazardous were included in improved recycling programs. Waste management improvements included properly managing hazardous and solid waste from generation to disposal, preparing Hazardous Waste Reports, and annual Toxic Release Inventory Reports.
