Industrial Safety Ordinance Revisions Response to the Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board’s Recommendations
Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board’s (CSB) Recommendations Revise the Industrial Safety Ordinance (ISO) to require that Process Hazard Analyses include documentation of the recognized methodologies, rationale and conclusions used to claim that safeguards intended to control hazards will be effective. This process shall use established qualitative, quantitative, and/or semi-quantitative methods such as Layers of Protection Analysis (LOPA).
CSB’s Recommendations Continued Revise the Industrial Safety Ordinance (ISO) to require the documented use of inherently safer systems analysis and the hierarchy of controls to the greatest extent feasible in establishing safeguards for identified process hazards. The goal shall be to drive the risk of major accidents to As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP). Include requirements for inherently safer systems analysis to be automatically triggered for all Management of Change and Process Hazard Analysis reviews, prior to the construction of new processes, process unit rebuilds, significant process repairs, and in the development of corrective actions from incident investigation recommendations.
CSB’s Recommendations Continued Monitor and confirm the effective implementation of the damage mechanism hazard review program ( I- CA-R1 and I-CA-R2), so that all necessary mechanical integrity work at the Chevron Richmond Refinery is identified and recommendations are completed in a timely way.
CSB’s Recommendations Continued For all California oil refineries, identify and require the reporting of leading and lagging process safety indicators, such as the action item completion status of recommendations from damage mechanism hazard reviews, to state and local regulatory agencies that have chemical release prevention authority. These indicators shall be used to ensure that requirements described in I-CA-R9 are effective at improving mechanical integrity and process hazard analysis performance at all California oil refineries and preventing major chemical incidents.
Joint Committee Ad Hoc Committee on Industrial Safety Ordinance and the Community Warning System Supervisors John Gioia and Federal Glover Richmond City Council Committee for the Richmond Industrial Safety Ordinance Council Members John Rogers and Jovanka Beckles
Industrial Safety Ordinance Revisions Working Group A group to work with the City of Richmond Staff and Contra Costa Health Services to develop language for the revisions Committee Includes Community Representatives: Greg Karras, Communities for a Better Environment Howard Adams, Crockett Resident Frank Gordan, Pittsburg Resident Ralph Sattler, Martinez Resident Henry Clark, West County Toxics George Smith, Hazardous Materials Commission Marilyn Langlois, Richmond Resident
Industrial Safety Ordinance Revisions Working Group Continued Industry Representatives: Sabiha Gokcen, Tesoro Golden Eagle Refinery Eric Schneider, Air Products Tom Brafford, General Chemical Richmond Bradford Anderson, General Chemical Bay Point Jared Wittry, Air Liquidé Marj Leeds or Teresa Makarewicz, Shell Martinez Refinery Larry Silva, Phillips 66 Rodeo Refinery United Steel Works Local 5 Mike Smith Jim Payne
Industrial Safety Ordinance Revisions Working Group Continued City of Richmond Staff: Lina Velasco Terry Harris Michael Banks Catherine Gerk Contra Costa Hazardous Materials Programs Staff: Cho Nai Cheung Randy Sawyer
Status of Revisions Joint Committee approved preliminary changes City of Richmond staff made preliminary changes to the Richmond Industrial Safety Ordinance County Counsel and Richmond City Attorney reviewing languages to have the language clear to the regulated sources and to make enforceable This revised language will be sent to stakeholders to review to determine if the intent has not changed Needs to be approved by the Board of Supervisors and the Richmond City Council
Other Activity Governor’s Interagency Working Group on Refinery Safety Task Force to address the recommendations and findings from the Working Group Task Force members include state agencies, Certified Unified Program Agencies with Refineries (seven), Air Districts with Refineries (four) Two Working Groups Safety and Prevention Emergency Preparedness and Response Safety Evaluation of the Chevron Richmond Refinery Selection of a New Telephone Emergency Notification System Vendor
