Evaluation of workplace safety performance in the Chinese petroleum industry

Abstract

Reform of the Chinese petroleum industry has entered its second phase since early 1999. The productiv­ity of the petroleum industry has been greatly improved, while the safety performance and records are not satisfac­tory. This paper investigates the critical factors for improv­ing safety performance in the Chinese petroleum industry. The data used for the analysis are from a questionnaire survey administered to 480 professionals in the petroleum industry in which 143 valid responses were received. Sta­tistical analysis techniques are used to analyze the data collected. The findings revealed that the most significant source of the safety problem is due to the combination of several reasons, including (a) violation on operating pro­cedures, (b) obsolete facilities and equipment failures, (c) insufficient safety management system, (d) improper commands, number of casualties, and (e) production per­formances and operating skills. The three most essential protective methods include safety training and increasing staff’s safety consciousness, cultivating safety culture, and enhancing equipment management and detecting hazards in time.

Performance Level Validation of the Machinery Control System / Walidacja Poziomu Zapewnienia Bezpieczeństwa Przez Systemy Sterowania Maszynami

Abstract

An important role among protective means play the elements of control systems performing safety functions. When the validation process of a safety performance level(PL) achieved by those systems is conducted properly one can draw the conclusion that any defect appearing in those systems would not cause the loss of safety functions. The paper presents formalized validation of the PL procedures for different categories and PL’s for introducing into the computer program which makes more efficient all the operations involved into the validation and documentation processes of safety performance level achieved by machine control systems.
