The project topic focuses on safety and welfare of the workers working in and around hazardous and risky environment. Numerous accidents take place each day and many workers lose their life just because the prescribed safety norms are not followed properly. It is the responsibility of management to ensure that all employees are properly trained and receive the necessary tools and guidelines to work safely.
This project aims to enhance the safety performance at shop floor and achieve the company‟s target of zero accident in Blast Furnace by identification of different hazards and calculating the risks associated to various activities.
Hazard identification and risk assessment (HIRA) is a collective term that encompasses all activities involved in identifying hazards and evaluating risk at workplace to make certain that risks to employees, the equipment, or the environment are consistently controlled within organization‟s risk tolerance and a Safety Report provides updates on safety indicators, including accidents and risk factors.
A number of hazards have been identified and the risks associated to the hazards have been noted. Assessment of risks has been done by using matrix method and risks have been classified according to the severity of its occurrence. After analysing all the data gathered, we have made possible recommendations to ensure safe working of blast furnace.
This project will certainly help the organisation to minimise losses due to any accident. Analysis of accident data to find reportable, non-reportable and first-aid on the basis of unfit period has been noted. The results of this analysis will be valuable to find out the consequences on emergency situation that may occur. We have also suggested various mitigation measures that will be efficient to avoid accidents in future.
