Do not expect to be conducting your own catalyst screening exercises any day soon. If the practice has not already been properly regulated in your area, expect only qualified risk management experts and specially trained catalyst unloading system operators to be carrying out necessary work on your behalf. If the work has not been forced upon you, it becomes a moral consideration and is prudent on your part to make a point of contracting the services of professionals.
It is good for your business going forward, and it is an opportune time for you to enhance all safety criteria in and around your business operating environment. The likely contractors are customer and service oriented, over and above being fully safety conscious. Maintaining safety standards is, in any case, a vital component of their service delivery business. They need a set of internal checks and balances to ensure that they are successful in carrying out their safety modus operandi on customers’ sites.
The key focus areas for a qualified and customer focused risk management technician remain those of safety, customer orientation, ongoing research of new technologies and methodologies, ongoing training initiatives and the regulatory and utilitarian maintenance of their testing equipment, as well as that of clients who own their own inventories. All this helps the business to keep operating costs down. More importantly, it helps to keep loss and damage almost non-existent and thus ensure that all personnel and visitors are kept safe.
To ensure that safety standards are maintained at the highest levels possible, technicians participate in planning of jobs, supervision thereof and on site safety meetings. The correct equipment is brought on site, giving a reassurance that hazardous occurrences can be detected long before they need to occur.
