Safety at Petrochemical Plants

The workplace within the petrochemical industry can be hazardous and extremely volatile. Some of the challenges Health & Safety Managers at petrochemical plants face every day include compliance with regulations, injury and accident reduction, and worker health.

In the petrochemical sector, durability, corrosion resistant materials and continuity of operations are vital. Kee Safety products help to meet all of these requirements.

Kee Safety has supplied and installed our safety systems on many petrochemical plants around the world. We have provided our safety systems to Clariant, National Petroleum in Saudi Arabia, Chevron, Sunoco, BP, Solvay, Exxon Mobil, Nova Chemicals, ConocoPhillips, PolyOne, Lubrizol, Petro-Canada, Huntsman and Diamond Offshore to name just a few.

Kee Safety barriers offer a cost-effective alternative to traditional welded handrail systems. Our barriers are quick and easy to design and easy to install, and very cost effective due to the modularity of their parts. Slip-on fittings securely join standard sizes of structural tube into almost any configuration imaginable, eliminating the need for welding and drilling. No hot work permit is required for the installation of our barrier systems, therefore production does not have to shut down during construction.

Our safety railing systems conform to stringent global industry standards. The main components are TÜV certified for strength, manufacturing quality and consistency.
Fall Protection Solutions For The Petrochemical Sector

In the majority of countries worldwide, falls from height are the leading cause of death or serious injury in the workplace. Every day contractors require regular access to roof tops to carry out essential building repair and maintenance work.

The presence of highly caustic, corrosive, and volatile materials such as chlorine and acid found in chemical and petrochemical plants, prompts a need for extensive maintenance and repair of pipe rack systems, clarifying and settling tanks, and other equipment which often exposes employees to fall hazards. Ensuring compliance to Health & Safety Legislations and worker safety requires a comprehensive fall prevention strategy.

When considering which type of safety system to use, the Hierarchy of Safety is a good starting point when deciding what equipment is required.

Kee Safety offers a wide range of collective and personal fall protection solutions, including roof top guardrails, lifelines, mobile man anchors, overhead fall protection, skylight and rooflight protection. By using our fully tested and certified systems, the health and safety of anybody who is required to work at height can be assured.

We also offer a wide range of safe access solutions, which allow people to work safely, whether on a roof, on a raised platform or within a production environment. Our safe access solutions include self-closing safety gates, roof top walkways, access platforms for working at height and step-overs.
