Avoid rainwater on storage tank floating roofs

Published on 11/07/22 202 Views 1 likes

Insufficient draining of rainwater on floating roofs of storage tanks has resulted in many sunken roofs. Typical causes for insufficient drainage of roof water are: closed drain valve, frozen drain, debris/fouling in the drain.

Ask yourself and your crew:

  • How can something like this happen here (e.g. on our site)?
  • What safety measures (i.e. procedures, controls/barriers) do we have in place to mitigate the risk?
  • How do we know the risk controls/barriers are working?
  • What improvements or changes should we make to the procedures, controls/barriers or the way we work?
