International Robotic Tank Solutions (IRTS) approach towards safety is guided by two broad basic principles:
- A true and demonstrated concern for the safety and health of our employees.
- A measured and evaluated appraisal of the economic benefits to our clients and the company.
The avoidance of accidents and other unplanned occurrence which result in injury to employee, interruption of production and equipment damage is of prime concern to Tamam Projects Company, it is our policy to take whatever actions are necessary through our supervisory and safety personnel in engineering, planning, assigning, supervising and performing all work operations to ensure that safe and healthy working conditions are established and maintained.
International Robotic Tank Solutions (IRTS) Safety program is determined through written procedures contained in the Safety Procedure Manual such as Fire Protection and Prevention, Hazardous Material Manual and Standardized work plan procedures as well as Statutory Safety and Health Regulations. The program will be monitored to document progress and to identify areas, which require immediate or remedial actions. The Safety Program for a client’s facility will be tailored to the specific requirements of the plant will be published as a Plant Safety Action Plan and will be structured so as to dovetail with existing plant requirements. The plan will be completed and submitted for the clients review prior to commencement of work.
Safe practices and working conditions in the plant are accomplished through a combination of inspection, training and enforcement. Continuing inspections by supervisors and safety personnel on a daily basis identify unsafe conditions and unsafe acts. The problems identified are corrected immediately and documented problems, which evolve naturally out of work environments, are identified in a timely manner and dealt with through responsible planning and scheduling. Enforcement of the program through written notices of non-compliance and documented disciplinary action notices to employees is an ongoing supplement to training.
All work areas are monitored for those occupational health hazards, which are associated with the work environment. The hazards that are continually monitored are evaluated are chemicals which may occur in a liquid dust, fume, mist, vapor or gaseous form, physical hazards such as radiation, noise, pressure, vibration and illumination are also monitored and controlled. Biological hazards although occurring less frequently are also monitored through respiratory protection program, which includes medical screening, and evaluation will be implemented for those employees exposed to either feedstock or products which through industry experience or regulations are determined to detrimental to employee health.
