Occupational Risk Management at Hazardous Production Facilities Operating Hoisting Mechanisms


Current models of OSH management systems do not contain specific recommendations for the organization of work aimed at reducing occupational risk levels. Development of safety management systems capable to reduce the level of occupational risk is especially relevant for the enterprises with hazardous production facilities.

The methods are considered related to organizing the procedure for managing occupational risks during operation of hazardous production facilities where loading and unloading are conducted. The stages are presented concerning the organization of work on the assessment of occupational risks, which are mandatory for inclusion in the local regulatory acts of the employer executing such a procedure. The most important part of the organization of these works is the analysis of the technological process and the formation of hazards register at each specific workplace.

Identification of hazards and occupational risks assessment were conducted using Fine — Kinney assessment method through the example of specific industrial process. This method is recommended for use by GOST—2018 «Methods of risk assessment for ensuring safety of work». It is designed to assess the individual risks of each employee and allows to evaluate three components of the occupational risk: probability of a hazardous event, level of exposure to hazard and the severity of possible consequences.

The forms of documents are presented that display information about the technological process and on specific hazards during each technological operation. The article presents the criteria for occupational risks assessment using Fine — Kinney method, and the matrix for determining the level of occupational risk when organizing loading and unloading operations using bridge cranes with a lifting capacity of 20/5 t. The characteristics of the risk level and the significance of each risk for hazardous production facilities are identified.
