Propane flash fire during hot work

Published on 15/03/23 859 Views

The discharge pipeline of a propane compressor had a leak. During the complex repair using cutting tools to open a corroded flange, propane was released, and a flash fire injured the mechanic.

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?
