Risk Assessment Activity: Trial blasting at Power House

Sl. No. 1 Risk involved Vibrations caused during Blasting Seismic wave Shock wave, Flying stones Assessment Vibrations may affect the performance of the structure During Trial blasting seismic waves shall be generated due to vibrations. Shock wave may generate and transmit to the adjoining Loading Bay Flying stone may hit protection wall and if weak may fall , detachment of Rubber tyres and wooden logs due to Impact Level Control plan Responsib Remark ility Vibration Control as Sinohydro permissible should be adopted and monitored Action plan need to Sinohydro be implemented. Action plan need to Sinohydro be implemented In case some Sinohydro weakness is noticed same will be attended to desired level to minimise risk Ventilation System Sinohydro shall be installed to evacuate harmful gases through extraction system and supply of fresh air Dust shall be Sinohydro extracted through Ventilation system and the Second Protection wall will minimise the dust

2 3 4

Harmful Harmful gases shall be gases and generated during the heat Blasting which may leak into the adjoin loading bay and existing units working area. Generation of dust Dust will be during the operation. generated Blasting

7 Sl. No. 8

Fire Risk involved Water Drainage

Fire may be generated during Blasting due to hitting of rock fragments Assessment Level Water with muck will be generated during Wet drilling and flow towards the Existing Power house loading bay and also water generated during Fire Fighting. Power Supply may fail due to shock impact transmitting during Blasting

transmission Fire Protection Sinohydro System to be installed Control plan Sinohydro Water drainage Sinohydro system to be provided at appropriate location without affecting the activity. Action plan to be Sinohydro implemented at site


Power Failure


1. All the significant risks which are marked S will have control procedures. Method Statement prepared by the contractor and Work Permit issued by competent authorities are followed by the all the engineers, supervisors and workers. To ensure conformance and to evaluate the extent to which people are following the procedures, monitoring is done by the Safety Supervisor/Safety Officer/Site Supervisor/Site Engineers/Construction Manager depending upon the scope defined in the contract. Monitoring frequency depends upon criticality of activity or process and as per the applicable safety conditions for understanding site work (TCE. M4-917) 2. Any non conformity may lead to an extent up to stoppage of work of the process or activity ( Memo Format)

3. Those activities for which the risk can have major or minor consequences on others other activity (like blasting, fire, explosion) are marked Red. 4. All HIRA charts are reviewed wherever there are major changes in activity and processes. All HIRA charts will be revised if corrective & preventive action mandate require such a change. MR, QMS will be the approving authority. 5. All accidents are investigated and corrective and preventive action is taken as per recommendations of investigation report. All significant activities having more risk are controlled by regular checking. Check lists are developed by contractors and reviewed and approved by the site in charge. 6. Training need will be identified and training will be imparted accordingly. 7. To control injuries at site requirement of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required PPE will be given to all. will be identified and
