Sicherheit für Mensch, Umwelt und Region Die Kultur der Raffinerie Heide fußt auf Sicherheit
Der Begriff HSSEQ (Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Quality) steht im Deutschen für „Gesundheit, Sicherheit, Werkschutz, Umwelt und Qualität“. Unter diesem Begriff versammeln sich all unsere Aktivitäten zum Schutz von Mensch und Umwelt.
Sicherheit steht im Detail sowohl für Arbeits- als auch für Anlagensicherheit, Ein wichtiger Punkt unserer Aktionen zur Förderung einer Sicherheitskultur sind die sogenannten HSSEQ-Tage. In diesem Rahmen trainieren und sensibilisieren wir alle Mitarbeiter im Hinblick auf die kontinuierliche Verbesserung der Sicherheit und des Umweltgedankens.
Da eine große Zahl von Partnerfirmen für Projektarbeiten auf dem Unternehmensgelände tätig ist, gehört für deren Mitarbeiter die Teilnahme an den HSSEQ-Tagen zu den vertraglichen Pflichten unserer Zusammenarbeit.
Safety for people, the environment and the region The Raffinerie Heide culture is founded on safety
In the refinery industry, HSSEQ stands for health, safety, security, environment and quality, a term under which we categorise all our activities designed to protect n people and the environment..
‘Safety’ refers to both occupational safety and plant safety. A key component of our actions to promote a safety culture are HSSEQ days, when we train all our employees and raise their awareness of issues relating to the continuous improvement of safety and environmental concerns.
Because many of our partner firms for project work are active on the plant site, their employees’ participation in the HSSEQ days forms part of those companies’ contractual obligations.
All refinery installations are regularly inspected and serviced, and undergo ‘TÜV shutdowns’ every five years, when over 1,000 specialists subject every unit to minute examination.
During our daily operations readings are taken at 30,000 measuring points to monitor all relevant points of the plant and ensure that everything is running perfectly. Meanwhile, a sophisticated alarm system immediately detects any deviations. All pipelines are also monitored electronically and, if a malfunction occurs, the monitoring equipment can identify and locate a leak within seconds and to an accuracy of just a few metres, even in the underground pipelines.
Health, occupational and plant safety
We look after people’s health.
Our senior management team is committed to acting in a responsible and exemplary manner when it comes to health, safety and the environment and to serving as role models for all employees. This role model function also applies to our demeanour with respect to local residents.
We train our employees systematically and regularly on all relevant safety measures and our facilities are subjected to safety checks at specified intervals.
We consistently abide by the legal requirements on work, production and environmental safety in all divisions of the company and consider these the minimum standards to be followed.
What should you do if an incident occurs?
As a company exposed to elevated risk we have a special duty to provide information in the event of an unfortunate incident. The safety of local residents is every bit as important to us as that of our employees.
A comprehensive brochure has been produced for our neighbours, providing information on what to do in an emergency.
Here is a brief overview of the most important points it covers:
Warn your next-door neighbours and bring children indoors immediately.
Help elderly and disabled people and offer temporary shelter to passers-by.
Do not stay outside longer than necessary. Seek safety indoors.
Close windows and doors and switch off air-conditioning and ventilation systems.
Listen out for loudspeaker announcements and switch the radio on.
Always follow the instructions of emergency personnel.
Do not block fire service, police and emergency response telephone lines by calling to request information. Only make such calls in the event of a personal emergency – dial 110 (police) or 112 (fire service, rescue service and disaster response).
Keep away from the site of the incident and leave roads and paths free for emergency personnel.
If further action is needed it will be taken by the responsible authorities.
