Introduction to the concept of HSE and its importance in the electricity industry
In this section, we are about to introduce HSE (health, safety, environment) and get acquainted with the concept of HSE and its importance in the electricity industry.
The HSE term is derived from the words Health (meaning occupational health), Safety and Environment.
In fact, it can be said that HSE includes processes, rules and regulations, and in general,
actions that have been explained and carried out with the aim of creating safety and health for workers and contractors in the workplace.
Rules and processes designed to protect the environment from the hazards and effects of workplaces are also included in the HSE concept.
HSE history (health, safety, environment)
this category goes back to the late nineteenth century and after the Industrial Revolution.
The increase in workers’ death, their diseases and injuries in industrial environments, made experts realize the importance of occupational health and safety.
It was the time that the link between work-related illness and the occurrence of an accident at work came to the fore, and in the 1970s,
law was passed in the United States that required employers to describe and inform workers about the problems, risks and circumstances of the workplace.
HSE’s history in Iran
The history of HSE in Iran dates back to 1974, when the concept was highlighted due to the need to protect the environment during the operations of the contracts of the National Iranian Oil Company, and a law was passed during which during oil operations to prevent Complete arrangements and care were made from environmental resources including water, air and land.
After the Islamic Revolution, the Ministry of Health, Treatment and Medical Education was given the task of caring for and supervising occupational health and the workplace, until in 2001, with the participation of major international oil and gas companies such as Total France in Bushehr Province Oil and Gas projects, this concept gained another importance and the HSE organization was established in the Ministry of Oil by hiring relevant experts for the first time.
The necessity of HSE (health, safety, environment)
According to statistics released by the International Labor Organization, there are 8 work-related accidents occurring in the world every second; In other words, the health and lives of eight people in the workplace are probably at risk every second.
Such statistics show the importance of health and safety in the workplace, and this shows the need to address the issue of HSE in various organizations more than ever.
General classification of HSE (health, safety, environment)
HSE is an interdisciplinary engineering concept and discipline that has many applications in various fields of engineering.
This applied science is rooted in many other knowledge and sciences such as:
Mathematics, chemistry, physics, medicine, physiology, statistics and humanities.
Different and general dimensions of HSE can be considered as predicting, diagnosing, evaluating and controlling health and safety hazards in the workplace.
This field is divided into two parts, HSE-MS and Technical.
HSE management system
(HSE-MS: HSE Management System)
HSE management system is an integrated management tool that is used to manage and control and improve
health, hygiene, safety and environment in all parts and operations of an organization.
This system by creating a new, creative and systematic organizational culture, synergistic structuring of
the organization’s human resources components and equipment and facilities available, using continuous training
and periodic audits and continuous evaluation and improvement tries to minimize accidents and injuries at work,
increase the health of people and the workplace.
It also seeks to minimize the adverse effects of industry on the environment,
and to take full care of the environment, which is one of the greatest human assets.
HSE engineering is made up of three seemingly different, yet inseparable, interconnected parts:
An HSE engineer is required to maintain the health of the workforce and being aware of
all the working conditions prevailing in an organization, to make arrangements for all cases that lead to
damage to the health of the human resources in special environment.
These include public health, occupational health and environmental health.
HSE engineers in industrial environments must have the necessary awareness and knowledge
to assess environmental and work risks and minimize the risks and risks of work by examining all cases.
The main items in this section include safety in operations, safety in projects and safety of people and labor in projects.
The HSE engineer must take on the task of protecting the environment, which is likely to be damaged as a result of the
operation or sewage and waste of an industrial complex, and minimize the risks to the environment (water, soil and air).
Preventing the excessive consumption of environmental resources is also one of the issues that should be considered.
The importance of establishing HSE systems in the electricity industry
Based on the definitions of HSE and the importance of safety and health and environmental care,
the importance of establishing HSE systems in companies and complexes active in the field of electricity generation and distribution, its necessity is clear.
In this section, we will discuss the important points of familiarity with the concept of HSE and its importance in the electricity industry.
Due to the existence of work hazards in the implementation of engineering operations of production and distribution companies and the design
and construction of power plants, including hazards from working with electric motors, damage caused by materials and…
as well as pollutants that such operations enter the environment Live, the need to deploy HSE systems in the electricity industry is becoming increasingly obvious.
Peymabargh Company, in line with its professional responsibilities towards the laborers and valuable capital of the environment,
has received a special safety certification certificate from legal entities from the Ministry of Cooperatives,
Labor and Social Welfare for activities in the field of human resource and communications.
The company attaches great importance to the health and safety of the workforce as well as the care and protection of the environment.
Observance of such standards has been and will be one of the priorities of this company in all its dimensions and work and professional operations.
