Method of Assessment of Industrial Safety Condition in the Organization on the Basis of the Corporate Control Results

S.V. Ovcharov, Cand. Sci. (Eng.), Laboratory Head, OOO «Gazprom VNIIGAZ», Razvilka, Russia

Alternative approach to assessment of industrial safety condition in the organization operating hazardous production facilities is described. According to this approach this assessment is proposed to be carried out by means of the complex of simple quantitative indices. They are obtained on the basis of the results of the operating company scheduled inspections, which are performed within the frame of the corporate control for meeting industrial safety requirements. It shall be performed by the inspection control bodies of the corporation, to which the operating company is included as an affiliated one.
Implementation of this approach is related to the need of developing strict algorithm of inspection representing in a special way the systematized list of control operations. Each of them — purposeful action of inspection body on the control for observance of the separate industrial safety requirement. In the scope of the general list the control operations are consolidated in groups according to the types of the inspected objects, technical devices or aspects of organization activity with strict numbering of the control operations being part of each group. Possible violation of industrial safety requirement corresponds to each control operation. The list of possible typical violations is systematized according to the scheme similar to the group scheme of control operations systematization. At this scheme to each group of control operations corresponds the group of violations, which amount and numbers in the group coincide precisely with the amount and numbers of control operations in the corresponding group. Upon completion of inspection the total amount of all the revealed violations is distributed on groups, and then, inside each of them — on three subgroups: the subgroup of repeated violations, the subgroup of unaddressed violations, the subgroup of critical violations (with potential grave consequences). The specified systematization of violations allows to derive the complex consisting of twenty quantitative indices of industrial safety level assessment of the organization. Summary indicator — an arithmetic average value of five-ball indicators. It characterizes the general level of industrial safety condition of the inspected organization based on the traditional five-ball scale taking into account the total amount, frequency, avoidability and severity of the violations revealed during inspection.
