HAZARD ANALYSIS

Proposed Site Safety Advisor (and Safety Officers), shall conduct a walk-through of the project site and shall identify potential hazard areas and/or situations, and record the findings on the Plot Plan. A report will be submitted to the CM and as and when require CM Safety Staff will join the walk-though. Once the hazards have been identified, they are to be classified as Class A, B or C to describe the potential severity as noted below: Class A Hazards. A condition or practice likely to cause permanent disability, loss of life or body part and/or extensive loss of equipment or materials. Class B Hazards. A condition or practice likely to cause serious injury or illness (resulting in temporary disability) or property damage that is disruptive, but less severe than Class A. Class C Hazards. A condition or practice likely to cause minor (non-disability) injury or illness or non-disruptive property damage.

HAZARDS TO BE ADDRESSED Outlined below are the various types of hazards typical in a construction site. In the event a hazard has not been covered in the findings during HIP walk-through, the following will be a guide to ensure all hazards are covered:

CLASS A HAZARDS Activities

Description of Potential Hazard & Preventive Measures

Temporary & Permanent Electricity

Distribution of electricity in the construction site is different from a permanent installation. Hazards will arise when unskilled or unqualified electricians carry out electrical work. The use of Lock-Out and Hold Tags maybe called for on certain operations. The use of GFCIs is required on all Construction sites. Crane & critical lifts like equipment that will be Crane & Critical Lifts utilized for dynamic compaction & dynamic replacement are major hazards. Where large or heavy pieces of equipment, inexperienced workmen, uncertified operators and unapproved equipment are combined, accidents can occur. Procedures as outlined in CLIENT Construction Safety Manual & Crane Safety Handbook must be followed. Slings & Lifting Gear Exceeding the safe working load of rigging equipment, using un-inspected or damaged slings or using untrained personnel can cause accidents. Compliance with approved procedures as outlined in the latest CLIENT Construction Safety Manual and Crane Safety Handbook is a must. Welding, cutting and brazing are safe operations Welding, Cutting & Brazing if carried out in the correct manner. Where equipment is defective, or there is no wellarranged plan to carry out this type of work, hazards can arise. Ensure that only safe equipments are being used and works carried-out by competent personnel. The use of sub-standard material, combined with Scaffolding & Ladders inexperienced, untrained and not certified workmen, presents a hazard when using a scaffold and ladder. Only competent, trained, certified workmen will erect scaffolding, supervised by Certified Scaffolding Supervisor and inspected by a Certified Scaffolding Inspector. Careful erection and inspection of scaffolding is essential to prevent accidents. Manholes/Excavations, Pits, Trenching & No ground containing an excavation can be relied upon to support its own weight. No pit or Shoring manhole can be considered safe. Rescue equipment and a procedure for a rescue operation Page 6 of 59

CLASS A HAZARDS Activities

Description of Potential Hazard & Preventive Measures must be in place prior to start of any work these areas. Should work be carried out in close proximity to existing obstructions, specifically, hydrocarbon related pipe bridges, caution shall be taken to ensure that damage is not caused to CLIENT facilities, or Contractors equipment or employees during excavations or lifting operations. Goal posts shall be installed to establish a safe distance between work area and overhead obstruction. Several factors must be taken into account before any road is blocked or re-routed. Prior to the method of blockage being decided, or prime importance are the methods of construction and the surround hazards, i.e. high water table and pump requirement, traffic flow at various times of the day, etc. CLIENT and Safety Section shall be notified prior to any proposed road blockage or re-routing and traffic plan shall be submitted for review/approval. Road blockage/re-routing shall be made to comply with CLIENT General Instructions. This covers several area of work, all of which present hazards. The placement of reinforcing steel, concrete, vertical shoring, formwork and shuttering, are but a few to the concerns that should be considered in any HIP. Accidents can be caused by employees actions/inactions, and/or unanticipated failure of mechanical devices, concrete forms or shuttering. Sandblasting can cause hazards not only to the operators, but also assistants and other people in the area, if hydrocarbons are present, if sandblasting equipment is incorrectly grounded or if proper protective is not worn. Boring underneath roadways can cause subsidence, cave-in, damage to other underground utilities and can create traffic flow disruption. Prior to carrying out this work, a method statement, including detour plan, shall be submitted to CLIENT/Safety Section for review/approval. Page 7 of 59

CLASS A HAZARDS Activities

Description of Potential Hazard & Preventive Measures Installation of hot taps by inexperienced workmen, H2S presence, working in confined areas and unmaintained hot tap machines, can all cause accidents. Incorrect types or sub-standard personal protective equipment can lead to accidents. All PPE must be made to comply with ANSI or OSHA Standards. This includes hard hats, safety glasses, safety shoes/boots and full body harnesses. Paints and coatings, improperly handled, stored, prepared and applied, can cause harmful conditions. Ventilation is a prime area of concern in the application of any paint or coating being applied on the Construction site. Note: See Chemicals section of this program for details on maintaining a MSDS. Additionally, special attention must be taken in the storage of paints & coatings. Handling, storage, transportation and misfires using explosives all can cause hazardous conditions. Widely used in constructions operations, piling without good experienced workmen, well maintained equipment and with the stress and vibration imposed on that equipment, can lead to hazardous conditions. Asbestos has been widely used in the construction industry, and is the generic name given to a number of inorganic fibrous silicate minerals. Disposal, storage, handling, ventilation, transportation and over exposure can all cause hazardous conditions. Many factors must be considered prior to any demolition including the structures age, method of construction, state of preservation, its previous use, the type of material used in the construction and/or renovations and the surrounding environment (see the notes on Asbestos & Other Fibers above). Accidents can happen when due consideration is not given to all the foregoing, as Page 8 of 59

CLASS A HAZARDS Activities

Description of Potential Hazard & Preventive Measures well as cleansing and degreasing equipment. Any chemical should be treated as hazardous. Handling, storage, identification and labels which are incorrectly tagged and spillages can cause extremely hazardous conditions. Follow procedures as outlined in Contractors Safety Plan. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) shall be established and maintained by the Contractor. Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), widely used in the construction industry, is normally odourless, colorless and heavier than air. In commercial usage, an odorizing agent is added to facilitate detection of accidental gas escapes. Incorrect handling, storage or labelling can cause extremely hazardous conditions. Fuel incorrectly stored or mishandled can cause accidents. Refuelling operations require special attention. Fuel must not be stored or transported in plastic containers. All containers, including fuel tanks, must be grounded and bonded to the equipment into which fuel is being transferred. Berms are required to contain spillages in larger fuel storage tanks. Construction operations could affect the movement of hydrocarbons if not planned and performed in accordance with the standard operating procedures. Ionizing industrial radiation, such as X-Rays generated by equipment or gamma rays emitted spontaneously by radioactive materials, are widely used for non-destructive testing, without damaging the tested materials. However, they can penetrate the human body, unknown, as the senses cannot recognize them, causing living cells in the body harm.

CLASS B HAZARDS Activities

Description of Potential Hazard & Preventive Measures Heavy equipment operated by uncertified operators, equipment lacking maintenance or lack of a back-up spotter (banks-man) are potential hazards. These operations could be reclassified as Class A if the physical layout of the area offers additional hazards, such tank farms, congested traffic flow, etc. Equipment shall only be operated by certified and competent operators who know the limitation of his equipment. Material handling forms a large part of construction work. How these materials are handled and stored can have a considerable effect on the job safety. The type of material being handled may require up-grading to Class A Hazard and handling should also be upgraded accordingly. Power tools allow many jobs to be carried out more efficiently and with greater speed and accuracy. However, hazards will arise when unskilled and untrained workers are allowed to operate hand/power tools. Proper training and experience must be the criteria for allowing a worker to use hand/power tools. Site offices and lay-down yard, including flammable storage facilities shall be constructed with safety and efficiency in mind. Negligence of such factors could lead to unfortunate incidents. All utilities shall be made to comply with CSM requirement. Proper operation and maintenance shall be established. Layouts shall be submitted to CM /Safety Section for review/approval prior to construction. Mechanical equipment can cause hazard if the operators are not properly trained and the equipment is poorly maintained. Only trained operators shall operate properly maintained equipment.

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY AND OBJECTIVES SBGs environmental policy is reproduced below from the Corporate Quality Manual. SBG is committed to conducting all of its activities with the proper regard for the environment in which we work. This not only means the prevention of pollution, or its minimisation where prevention is impossible, but also compliance with our contracts and all laws and legislation relating to the environment wherever we conduct our business. All of our construction and related activities are assessed for any adverse impact on the environment and measures taken to control them, documented in method statements on a project and in the Operations Plan for our offices and other facilities. In addition, each project or facility is set targets to measure performance against our policy and senior management regularly reviews these with the aim of continual improvement of the system. SBG is also committed to enhancing the environment where possible by the minimum use of resources through the reduction or elimination of waste, the recycling of waste and the use of appropriate technology. Accordingly, all personnel are required to implement the environmental management system in so far as it applies to their work and to contribute actively to its improvement during the course of their duties.

5.2

Our principal environmental objectives are To prevent incidents at the workplace that result in pollution. To minimise our use of natural resources. To minimise the adverse impact on the environment due to our construction activities.

6.0 6.1

PLANNING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT The Project Manager will ensure that the Permanent Works are constructed such that they have the minimal adverse impact on the environment. An environmental impact assessment will be performed on all aspects of the work described in each method statement. The resultant Environmental Impact Statement, developed to eliminate the impact or reduce it to a tolerable level, is included in the method statement and is approved prior to the work commencing. It is also SBGs policy that other activities on the project such as the plant workshop and the workers site also adopt environmentally responsible work practices in accordance with our environmental management system. Where appropriate, environmental impact control programmers for standard activities will be issued to assure compliance with our requirements.

Any coupler found to be broken or damaged or found to have rusty or damaged threads will be discarded. Couplers will be sorted by type. They will be kept clean and lightly oiled to prevent rust. Storage of Materials All scaffolding material will be properly and neatly stored. Tubes will be sorted and stored by length. Couplers will be sorted and stored by type. Boards will be stored no more than 20 high. 1.1.5.2 Where materials are being stored at the site of erection for immediate use, they will be stored in a neat manner that does not present a tripping hazard or block access routes. General Rules for Scaffolding Foundations The foundations shall be adequate to carry the load and, as far as possible, level. A base plate shall be placed under every standard irrespective of the foundation surface. A sole plate shall be placed under every base plate where the foundation is other than concrete or metal plate decking. This rule shall apply to open deck grating. Sole plates, where required, shall be placed underneath the base plates on two adjacent standards, normally at right angles to the face of the scaffold. The sole plate will extent 600mm either side of two adjacent standards which it supports. Under no circumstances will any excavation be performed within 3m of the foundations of a scaffold to prevent undermining. Standards (Tube & Coupler Scaffolds) Standards shall be plumbed vertical.

The spacing between standards is determined by the intended use of the scaffold. Under no circumstances will the bay length exceed those distances given in Table 1.1. Joints in standards can be made with sleeve couplers or spigots (joint pins). Joints must be staggered, i.e. they must not occur at the same level in adjacent standards. Ledgers (Tube & Coupler Scaffolds) Ledgers must be plumbed level and fixed to the inside of standards using right angle, load-bearing couplers. The vertical distance (lift height) between ledgers must not exceed 2m. Joints in ledgers will be made with sleeve couplers; spigots (joint pins) are not acceptable. All joints must be staggered.

Transoms Transoms should, whenever possible, be secured to standards using right angle couplers. They may however, be laid across ledgers and secured with putlog clips provided that they are not more than 300mm from each pair of standards. Ties Ties must be fixed at every second lift and every second standard. Where a scaffold has been sheeted out with tarpaulins, consideration will be given to additional wind loading and the insertion of additional ties. All ties will be positive two way ties i.e. they will prevent movement of the scaffold either into or away from the building. Positive two-way ties are: Box tie Screw or anchor ties Through tie Ties secured with couplers

1.2.5 1.2.5.1 1.2.5.2 1.2.5.3

1.2.5.4 1.2.5.5

All ties must be secured as near to the node point as is possible. No other coupler will be acceptable. The anchorage point to which a tie is secured must be of sufficient strength to withstand the load imposed upon it. Under no circumstances will guardrails be used as an anchorage point for ties. As a general rule, ties must always be inserted. Where this is not possible, one of the following actions may be taken. On small scaffolds not extending above three lifts, adequate stability of the scaffold can be achieved by rakers. The raker will be secured with right angle couplers to the ledger at the second lift. The load in the raker will be distributed through a base plate or if required a sole plate. The foot of the raker will be tied back to the main scaffold. Rakers will be inserted at the same standard spacing as ties. Where a scaffold extends above three lifts, a well-braced buttress shall be erected along the total length of the structure. The buttress shall be erected to a height no lower than the third lift from the top of the scaffold. The scaffold will then be raked back from the second top lift to the buttress, using right-angled couplers.

1.2.5.6

1.2.5.7 1.2.6 1.2.6.1

No raker shall extend more than 3m without being tied back at its mid point. Braces All scaffolds will be braced in both directions. Braces, whether faade or ledger to ledger, will extend to the full height of the structure. G-5

1.2.6.2 1.2.6.3 1.2.6.4 1.2.6.5 1.2.7 1.2.7.1 1.2.7.2 1.2.7.3 1.2.7.4

Faade braces will be repeated at a maximum distance of every 10m. Ledger to ledger bracing will be repeated at every alternate set of standards. Joints in faade braces will be made with sleeve couplers; spigots are not acceptable. Where braces are fixed to transoms, the transom itself must be fixed with right angle couplers. Working Platform Working platforms will normally be five boards wide but may be reduced to three boards where the scaffold has been erected for inspection purposes only. All working platforms will be close boarded with boards butted end to end. Each individual board will be securely lashed. Guardrails will be fixed to the inside of the standards on all working platforms to a height of between 1.10m (minimum) and 1.50m (maximum). The space between the top of the toe board and the underside of the guardrail will not exceed 690mm. An intermediate guardrail will be fixed to the inside of standards in every instance. Toe boards including stop end boards will be fitted to all working platforms. The minimum height will be 150mm. If materials are to be stacked above the height of the toe board, a suitable barrier (brick guards) will be erected. Ladder access openings will be not more than 500mm wide (2 boards) and will be as short as possible in the other direction. The maximum span of any board forming the working platform will be 1.20m.

1.2.7.5 1.2.7.6 1.2.7.7 1.2.7.8 1.2.7.9

1.2.7.10 The minimum overhang of any board will be not less than 50mm and the maximum overhang will not exceed 150mm. 1.2.7.11 No more than 2 boards width will be supported on needle transoms unless the transoms are fixed with right angle coupler and picked up. 1.2.7.12 Sign boards in appropriate languages shall be permanently displayed on each working platform. These shall state the maximum allowable weight of tools and materials and the maximum number of men per bay appropriate to the type of scaffold.

Ladder Access Platforms The vertical height between ladder access platforms will not exceed 9m. Ladder access platforms will be close boarded and will have guardrails and toe boards secured as described in section 1.2.7 above. Ladders Ladders will project beyond working platforms or ladder access platforms by a minimum distance of 1.05m (five rungs). Ladders will be based on a sound footing. They will be lashed or secured by a proprietary clamp at both the foot and near the top.

1.2.9.3 The angle at which the ladder is set will (with the exception of scaffold towers) be 75 or 300mm out for every 1.20m of vertical length. 1.2.9.4 1.2.9.5 1.2.9.6 1.2.9.7 1.2.9.8 1.2.9.9 Long ladders will be supported and lashed at their mid point to remove any bounce. Ladders may be of aluminium. Only properly constructed and manufactured ladders shall be used. Home made ladders are strictly forbidden. All ladders will be of good repair and sound construction. They will be checked for damage, faults and wear & tear by the Competent Scaffold Inspector before use. Ladders will not be painted or treated in any other way likely to conceal defects. Stiles will not be excessively warped. Rungs will not be excessively worn, broken or missing.

1.2.9.10 Metal tie rods will be in place. 1.2.9.11 Ladders may be on the outside of a scaffold for the first two lifts above ground level. In every other instance, the ladder run will be internal to the scaffold. 1.2.10 Protective Fans

1.2.10.1 Where it is likely that material may fall from a scaffold and where people are working or passing in close proximity to the structure, a protective fan will be erected. 1.2.10.2 Protective fans will not be used to store scaffolding or other materials.

G-7

1.2.10.3 The protective fan shall not be more than 5m above ground level, shall be at least 2m wide and at an angle not exceeding 20 to the horizontal. 1.2.11 Check Fittings

1.2.11.1 Without exception, check fittings will be used whenever a scaffold tube is punched up, picked up, rakered or hanging. 1.2.12 Scaffold Loading

1.2.12.1 It is the responsibility of the Competent Person, Scaffold Systems to ensure that the scaffold construction and strength are suitable for the purpose to which the structure will be put. 1.2.12.2 Design calculations shall be submitted to the Engineer for any scaffolding other than a common access scaffold for approval. The calculations are to show both dead and live loading. 1.2.13 Traffic Movements

1.2.13.1 Where a scaffold is erected in an area where it is likely to be struck by a vehicle, the base of the scaffold shall be properly protected with hard barriers. The barrier shall be illuminated with flashing warning lights during the hours of darkness. 1.3 1.3.1 1.3.2 1.3.3 Erection of Scaffolding Scaffolds shall be erected by capable workmen (Competent Persons) who have undergone a course of training as scaffold erectors. Scaffoders shall operate under the control of a Competent Person, who is trained as a scaffold inspector. Whenever possible, the scaffolders erecting the scaffold will work from the minimum of a three board run. It is not acceptable for scaffolders to be perched on tubes, unless a fall arrest device is provided and secured to a suitable anchorage point at all times. Ladders will be properly lashed throughout the vertical height of a scaffold as it progresses. Scaffolders erecting the scaffold will use the ladders to gain access to the working level. Tubes or boards being used in the construction of the scaffold will be stored flat in a neat and tidy manner. They will not be stacked vertically against the scaffold. Loose tubes or boards will not be left on a scaffold after its completion.

1.3.7

In order to assist the section engineer in planning a safe scaffold system the HSE is to be notified of the intended work at least seven days before the scaffold is due to be erected. Where men are erecting a slung or cantilevered section or crawling around on a pipe bridge or other structural steelwork they will, in all instances where there is a possibility of falling more than 2m, wear a full body harness suitably anchored. Where men are working near an area of water where the danger of drowning exists, they will in all instances wear a full body harness. Where a scaffold is left in an incomplete state, the bottom ladder will be removed and a notice will be secured to the lower lift stating Danger Incomplete Scaffold Keep Off. This notice will be in the appropriate languages. Where one section of a working platform is incomplete, access may be gained to the completed section provided that a stop end, preventing entry, is placed over the working platform at guardrail height. A notice stating Danger Incomplete Scaffold Keep Off will be secured to the stop end. This notice will be in the appropriate languages. Handballing will be the normal method of erecting a scaffold. Where, however, a scaffold consists of a considerable number of lifts a gin wheel may be used, provided the following requirements are met: The gin wheel has a valid certificate not more than six months old issued by a Competent Scaffold Inspector. The cantilevered tube to which the gin wheel is secured does not project more than 760mm beyond the scaffold, unless it is adequately supported. The cantilevered tube is secured to the inside and outside standard using right angle couplers. Both standards to be diagonally braced. The fibre rope, which shall have a minimum diameter of 18mm, will be checked daily by the Competent Scaffold Inspector and discarded if unfit for use. The maximum load to be lifted by a gin wheel will not exceed 50kg.

Inspection All scaffolds will be inspected by a Competent Scaffold Inspector prior to use and at seven-day periods thereafter. The Competent Scaffold Inspector will complete the relevant sections of the scaffold tag if he finds the scaffold to be acceptable for use. Where the Competent Scaffold Inspector finds the scaffold to be unsafe, he will remove the scaffold tag and place a notice on the bottom lift stating Danger G-9

Incomplete Scaffold Keep Off. This notice will be in the appropriate languages. Where access is by ladder, he will also ensure that immediate action is taken to remove the lower ladder. 1.4.4 1.5 1.5.1 1.5.2 These actions will be in force until such times as the Competent Scaffold Inspector declares the scaffold safe for use. Scaffold Users Scaffolds will be used for the purpose for which they have been erected. Under no circumstances will they be overloaded. Scaffold users will under no circumstances interfere with, modify or remove any part of a scaffold (this includes scaffold boards). Interference with a scaffold will result in disciplinary action. Only a Competent Scaffold Inspector is authorised to modify a scaffold. If for any reason a user considers a scaffold to be unsafe, he will immediately contact his supervisor. The supervisor will immediately remove the scaffold tag and place barrier tape through the lower rungs of the first access ladder.

REQUIREMENTS FOR HOT WEATHER AND HEAT STRESS

K-1

1.0

PURPOSE To provide a safe working surrounding by establishing a procedure that addresses temperature extremes and reduces exposure to the effects of heat related hazards. To provide adequate access to drinking water and regimen for working in high heat areas To monitor workers and ensure they are consuming adequate amounts of water.

2.0 2.1

SCOPE To inform all supervisors of their responsibilities to the workforce and regulate exposure to heat situations. REFERENCES HSE Requirements as stipulated in Contract Documents. All applicable Saudi Arabian Regulatory Authority requirements and regulations DEFINITIONS, TERMS AND ABBREVIATIONS HEAT STRESS is usually the result of work being performed at elevated temperatures. Contributory factors may also include a decrease of natural body ventilation by protective clothing e.g. chemical & impervious suits. NOTE: If the bodys physiological processes fail to maintain a normal body temperature because of excessive heat, a number of physical reactions can occur ranging from mild (such as fatigue, irritability, anxiety, and decreased concentration, dexterity , or movement) to fatal. Because heat stress is one of the most common and potentially serious illnesses that construction workers encounters, in areas where high temperatures are normally encountered, regular monitoring and other preventative measures are vital.

3.0

4.0

5.0

RESPONSIBILITIES It is the responsibility of each Manager. Department Head, Engineer, foreman, charge-hand to ensure that their workers are informed of the physical hazards to Heat Exposure. Supervision shall actively monitor the work force for signs and symptoms of heat stress. The Site HSE Advisor / Doctor shall ensure that the requirements of this procedure are communicated throughout the organization through education (toolbox talks) and will liase with medical department in identifying and trends and concerns with regard to cases of heat stress. Medical personnel shall ensure the sufficient quantities of electrolyte and other forms of treatment are available in the medical center for the handing of any patients suffering from any heat related illness. K-2

Project Management and supervision are responsible for ensuring that personnel under their control are educated in recognizing and understanding the symptoms and treatment for the various forms of heat stress. 6.0 PROCEDURE There are several health hazards associated with excessive exposure to heat and sun. Recognize the effects of the following heat exposures: Heat Cramps This is a result of the loss of salt in the working muscles, usually a part of heat exhaustion. Acclimatize yourself during hot weather and consume lots of water, juice, or a sport drink before work. Other drinks like Coke, Tea and Coffee contain caffeine, which if consumed in excess amounts, also accelerates fluid loss in the urine. Heat Exhaustion This is caused by the excessive loss of body fluids from sweating. The individual sweat which causes dehydration and the symptoms are dizziness, become nauseated or very tiered. Rest and plenty of water usually produce quick recovery to this common heat ailment. Heat Stroke This is the most serious hot weather health problem. The individuals tolerance to heat stops. The individual has hot, dry skin with a high core temperature, chills, and mental confusion. If the individual is not cooled off quickly, the result can be brain damage or even death. The individual with a medical history of heat stroke is more likely to have a recurrence under the same conditions. Ensure workers are acclimatized to the heat. Provide shelters where workers can find shade and protection from direct sunrays. Provide periodic water breaks where workers can drink before, during and after work. Establish a work regimen where workers can be rotated, allowing short rest periods to prevent harmful effects due to Heat. Categorize the work load as the type of work being performed. Light supervising, Medium regular work Heavy digging, concrete work welding and grinding Provide water access in strategic points that are accessible to the worker. Establish access points to water for workers that are working at heights. Supervisors must monitor their work force by looking for signs of dehydration, especially in older persons or workers that have health problems. If possible, regulate work hours where exposure to high heat will not be during peak heat hours.

K-3

Preventative measures: Employees shall have access to cool potable water at their place of work Water coolers shall be provided for all crews. Shaded areas shall be provided for rest periods and instructions given to workers that resting adjacent to, or under plant and equipment is strictly prohibited. First Aid equipment provided on site shall include treatment for dehydration e.g. electrolytes. General All of the above conditions must be reported to the medical center and treated as soon as possible. Medical staff or first aiders will send regular communiqus on the subject of heat stress and inform management of any concerns. The contents of this procedure will be communicated and emphasized to site supervision during training sessions and at the contractors regular HSE meetings.

Guidelines for the Control of Heat Stress Heat stress is defined as a medical condition ranging in severity from mild to fatal as a consequence of working at elevated temperatures where the normal body temperature has increased to a level requiring action. Supervisors at any management level are responsible for ensuring that their workforce are not subjected to heat stress by: The provision of adequate supplies of drinking water. Ensuring that all personnel, including those of subcontractors under their control, are not working in conditions that are likely to lead to the incidence of heat stress. Monitoring their workforce during periods of high temperature, and at other times such as Ramadan, for signs of heat stress and taking immediate action when necessary. Heat stress is usually the result of work being performed at elevated temperatures. Contributory factors may also include a decrease of natural body ventilation by heavy clothing or protective personal equipment such as impervious suits. If the body's physiological processes fail to maintain a normal body temperature because of excessive heat, a number of physical reactions can occur ranging in degree from mild, such as fatigue, irritability, anxiety and decreased concentration, dexterity, or movement, to fatal. Heat stress is one of the most common and potentially serious illnesses that construction workers encounter in areas where high temperatures normally occur and regular monitoring and other preventative measures are vital. All of the conditions described below must be reported to the clinic and treated as soon as possible. Medical staff are to send regular communiqus on the subject of heat stress and inform management of any concerns. Supervisors are to ensure that their workforce is fully aware of the causes and symptoms of heat stress and the measures that can be taken to prevent or reduce the effects. Preventative Measures Employees must have access to cool potable water at their place of work. Water and paper cups are to be provided for all crews. Shaded areas are to be provided for rest periods and instructions given to workers that resting adjacent to or under plant and equipment is strictly prohibited. Fans may be required to increase ventilation in such areas. Heat Stroke Heat stroke is an acute and dangerous reaction to heat stress caused by a failure of the heat regulating mechanisms of the body, e.g. A breakdown of the employees temperature control

system that causes sweating. Body temperature rises so high that brain damage and death will result if the person is not cooled quickly. Typical symptoms are red, hot, dry skin, although the person may have been sweating earlier; nausea; dizziness; confusion; extremely high blood pressure, rapid respiratory and pulse rate; unconsciousness or in a coma. The casualty must be cooled down and medical attention sought immediately, with the patient transported to the clinic for treatment. Heat Exhaustion Heat exhaustion is a state of very definite weakness or exhaustion caused by the loss of fluids from the body. This condition is much less dangerous than heat stroke, but must be treated early on to prevent eventual deterioration to heat stroke. Typical symptoms are pale, clammy, moist skin, profuse perspiration, and extreme weakness. Body temperature is normal, pulse is weak and rapid, and breathing is shallow. The person may have a headache, may vomit, and may be dizzy. Remove the casualty from the heat, provide plenty of fluids to drink and allow rest. Heat Cramps Heat cramps are caused by perspiration that is not balanced by adequate fluid intake. Heat cramps are often the first sign of a condition that can lead to heat stroke. Typical symptoms are acute painful spasms of voluntary muscles; e.g. abdomen and extremities. The casualty should drink plenty of water if the problem is too much salt due to sweat not being replaced by drinking water. If the problem is a lack of salt (this is usually the case when the person has been working for a long time in a heavy protective suit) a commercially available carbohydrate-electrolyte replacement liquid should be given. Heat Rash Heat rash is caused by continuous exposure to heat and humid air and aggravated by chafing clothes. The condition decreases the ability to tolerate heat. Typical symptoms are a mild red rash, especially in areas of the body in contact with protective clothing. Expose the affected skin to allow cooling and drying.
