    3. OXYGEN DEFICIENCY ASPHYXIATION DANGER

    4. ASPHYXIATION DANGER A SERIOUS HAZARD INSIDIOUS It's a phenomenon SUDDEN WITHOUT WARNING

    5. 3 WEEKS WITHOUT FOOD 2 BREATHS WITHOUT OXYGEN ENDANGER YOUR LIFE 3 DAYS WITHOUT DRINK 3 MINUTES WITHOUT BREATHING

    6. IN CASE OF TOTAL OXYGEN DEFICIENCY the blood suddenly loses its oxygen NORMAL CONDITION SUDDEN O2 DEFICIENCY ATMOSPHERE BLOOD ATMOSPHERE WITHOUT O2 BLOOD O2 O2 CO2 CO2 O2 content in blood O2 content in blood WITH 0% OXYGEN, THE SECOND BREATH WILL CAUSE LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS WITHOUT WARNING WITHIN A FEW MINUTES, BRAIN DAMAGE MAY BE IRREVERSIBLE

    7. IN CASE OF PROGRESSIVE OXYGEN DEFICIENCY Oxygen content is decreasing in blood Progressive asphyxiation O2 content less than 18% • Vertigo • headache • speech difficulties • reduction and loss of consciousness • dulling of the mind • loss of muscle control BUT These symptoms are similar to those of general malaise and are not recognised as asphyxiation by the victim (inert gases are odourless, colourless, tasteless) The victim tries to overcome this by himself THE VICTIM DOES NOT CALL FOR HELP OVER A CERTAIN THRESHOLD, THE VICTIM CAN'T REACT : THE LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS IS SUDDEN

    8. In all cases: THE VICTIM NEVER REALISES THE RISK With less than 6% of oxygen : immediate loss of consciousness BUT • If the Oxygen atmosphere deficiency is only between 10 and 18% : • THE VICTIM FEELS ONLY GENERAL MALAISE AND DOES NOT RELATE THIS • TO THE ONSET OF ASPHYXIATION

    9. OXYGEN IS ESSENTIAL FOR : HUMAN LIFE and BRAIN PROCESSES • If the blood fails in bringing oxygen: • Cells don't operate anymore • Loss of consciousness • Irreversible consequences (paralysis, comatose state, ...)..... DEATH

    10. BUT .... REMEMBER : ASPHYXIATION DANGER Asphyxiation is a phenomenon ... • INSIDIOUS • SUDDEN • WITHOUT WARNING

    11. THE DANGER OF ASPHYXIATION may arise IN ALL THE CONFINED SPACES

    12. How can you identifya confined space ? ASPHYXIATION DANGER • A confined space is a space which has any of the following characteristics : • Limited opening for entry and exit • Unfavourable natural ventilation • Not designed for continuous worker occupancy

    13. ASPHYXIATION DANGER • How can you identifya confined space ? • If you are required to construct or work in a : • Boiler, cupola, degreaser, furnace, pipeline, pit, pumping station, reaction or process vessel, septic tank, sewage digester, sewer, silo, storage tank, ship's hold, utility vault, vat, or similar type of enclosure ... • You are working in a confined space

    14. Attention ! ASPHYXIATION DANGER O2 deficient atmospheres can arisealso in normal working areas,when gases are stored or used

    15. ASPHYXIATION DANGER • You must : Be aware of the risk, Always implement a safe system of work before allowing people to enter into a confined space

    16. ASPHYXIATION DANGER • You must : Make operators aware of the risk Implement a procedure to authorise the access Warn people of the danger, place signs at entrances to areas where O2 deficiency may arise Develop and apply safety measures

    17. ASPHYXIATION DANGER • You must also : Develop and apply appropriate safety measures AND Always monitor the oxygen content

    18. IN ALL CASES: PLACE SIGNS TO WARN OF THE DANGER ASPHYXIATION DANGER TO ALERT THE OPERATORS Inform about the risk Train in the method to detect the danger

    19. ASPHYXIATION DANGER • RESCUE Rescuers must be trained in and follow established emergency procedures and use appropriate equipment and techniques Rescue should be well planned and drills should be conducted frequently on emergency procedures Remember : an unplanned rescue will probably be your last

    20. THINK ! KEY WORD : When you design a gas installation When you install and commission a gas installation When you work on a gas installation Before acting in an emergency or abnormal event Before reacting to any accident or incident

    21. MISTAKES IN GAS USE : Preventive measures • RESPECT PRODUCT SPECIFIC CONNECTIONS designed to segregate product IDENTIFY PIPES INFORM users : Safety data sheets, safety notices NEVER IMPROVISE REPAIRS on installations

    22. MISTAKES IN GAS USE : Preventive measures • ALWAYS CHECK WHERE GAS RELEASES WILL GO: • the cold vapour from cryogenic liquids • vent exhausts • the outlets of safety valves and rupture discs • VERIFYperiodically the extraction efficiency • Install, if necessary, an ANALYSERwith alarm • VENTrooms where liquid gases are utilised or stored

    23. SPACES WHERE INERTING IS CARRIED OUT : • to protect a product, or • to allow work, such as welding • EXPLAIN ASPHYXIATION DANGER • CREATE A PROCEDURE TO ENTER : WORK PERMIT • PREPARE FOR EMERGENCIES with appropriate equipment : • self contained breathing apparatus • oxygen meter • safety harness • ropes • winch • TRAIN PEOPLE to verify the equipment & procedures before issuing the permit ASPHYXIATION DANGER

    24. MEASURES FOR ENTERING A CONFINED SPACE Before entering : assess risks and consequences to yourself and other ABNORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES, CONSIDER : BEFORE AN ACCIDENT, THINK ABOUT : • Any noise indicating a possible leak • Abnormal fluid flow • Pipe vents to a safe area • Look for leaks • Do not rely on a closed valve which may leak • Always use physical isolation methods, e.g. blind flanges DON'T RUSH ... THINK !

    25. CONCLUSION CONCLUSION: ASPHYXIATION DANGER • If you hear a gas leak, • If you see cold vapours, • If you have symptoms of general malaise, • If a colleague lies unconscious IMPLEMENT the APPROPRIATE PROCEDURE CONSIDERthe ASPHYXIATION RISK LEAVE the DANGER AREA 25A February 1997
