Turnaround Support Keeping Regina's Communities Safe

Industrial facilities like oil refineries in Regina require scheduled maintenance to keep operations running smoothly. These annual turnaround maintenance periods allow crews to conduct inspections, repairs, and updates to ensure safe, reliable production. However, the increased activity also introduces additional safety risks to workers and surrounding communities.

The Dangers of Turnaround Periods

Turnarounds require bringing in many additional workers and contractors to complete a high volume of tasks in a short timeframe. This hurried pace can lead crews to take risky shortcuts or make mistakes if safety protocols aren't strictly enforced.

Furthermore, the equipment being worked on contains hazardous materials, flammable chemicals, high pressure systems, and extremely hot surfaces. Any leaks or accidents during the turnaround could endanger both workers and Downtown Regina residents.

All-Encompassing Turnaround Services

Irwin's Safety recognizes the focus of turnaround is efficiency. However, the safety of the workers and community should remain the top priority. That's why we develop detailed planning and provide experienced safety experts to oversee all turnaround operations.

A Strict Adherence to Safety Protocols

Our safety staffing approach involves bringing in specially trained personnel to monitor work and enforce Community Guidelines established specifically for the turnaround. Crews must complete each task by the book, no exceptions. This Commitment to Safety minimizes the risks introduced by the additional workers and hurried pace.

Around-the-Clock Safety Monitoring

Irwin's Safety safety experts actively monitor all turnaround activities 24/7 for the duration of turnaround. We ensure sufficient coverage to keep an eye on multiple work fronts, stopping any unsafe behaviors immediately. This allows crews to work efficiently while keeping within safety parameters.

Coordination with Local Officials

Our safety staff also coordinates directly with city officials and first responders, keeping them informed of operations. If any accidents occur, open communication channels ensure a rapid coordinated response to protect the community.

Industrial sites like oil fields, mines, and plants can present complex rescue situations when things go wrong. Workers may get trapped in confined spaces or stranded at dangerous heights.

How do you rescue workers from confined spaces?

To rescue someone from a confined space:

  1. Evaluate health hazards without entering the space
  2. Assemble a rescue team with proper PPE and air-monitoring equipment
  3. Ventilate the space if possible or provide entrants with respirators or SCBAs
  4. Use retrieval systems like tripods or harnesses with attached ropes
  5. Set up a communication system with entrants
  6. Safely remove the victim using sked stretchers or ropes

What is the first stage of rescue?

The first stage of any rescue is scene assessment and triage. Rescuers arrive, quickly evaluate the scene for safety risks, and count and categorize victims based on injury/entrapment severity. Information gathered drives action priority to stabilize and transport the most critical victims first.

How do you rescue someone with a rope?

Rope rescue uses ropes, pulleys, litters, and other gear to access and retrieve people in high-angle environments. Key stages include:

  1. Anchor ropes/rigging to steady structures above the victim
  2. Lower litter with transfer equipment like pick-off straps
  3. Secure victim into litter
  4. Haul system to raise victim to safe location
  5. Transfer to EMS for any medical treatment

Proper anchor points, rope/equipment ratings, and trained technicians are essential for safe rope rescues.
