Executive Summary

RMP Executive Summary

Jena Upstream Chemicals (UC)



1. Accidental Release Prevention & Emergency Response Policies

Baker Petrolite Corporation is strongly committed to employee, public and environmental safety. This commitment is inherent to a comprehensive accidental release prevention program in place that covers areas such as design, installation, operating procedures, maintenance, and employee training associated with the processes at our facility. It is our policy to implement appropriate controls to prevent possible releases of regulated substances. Unforeseeably, if such a release does occur, we are completely coordinated with the Jena, La Fire Department which provides highly trained emergency response personnel to control and mitigate the effects of the release.



2. Regulated Substances Handled

There is one (1) regulated substance present at our facility. This substance is Acrolein [2-Propenal]. The regulated substance at our facility is stored and distributed to our customers. Acrolein [2-Propenal] is stored in a pressurized vessel to minimize emissions during storage. There is no material handling of Acrolein except moving of containers.



3. General Accidental Release Prevention Program & Chemical-Specific Prevention Steps

Our facility has taken all the necessary steps to comply with the accidental release prevention requirements set out under 40 CFR Part 68. In additional to 40 CFR 68, the BPC - Jena facility is subject to the OSHA PSM standard under 29 CFR 1910.119 and EPCRA Section 302 notification requirements.

The following sections briefly describe the elements of our release prevention program that are in place at our facility.



Process Safety Information

Jena UC maintains a detailed record of written safety information that describes the chemical hazards, operating parameters and equipment designs associated with Acrolein.



Process Hazard Analysis

Jena UC conducts comprehensive studies to ensure that hazards associated wi
th our processes are identified and controlled efficiently. The methodology used to carry out these analyses is HAZOP. The studies are undertaken by a team of qualified personnel with knowledge in engineering and process operations.



Operating Procedures

For the purposes of safely conducting activities within our covered processes, Jena UC maintains written operating procedures. These procedures address various modes of operation such as transportation, storage and emergency operations. The information is regularly reviewed and is readily accessible to operators involved with the processes.



Training

Jena UC has a comprehensive training program in place to ensure that employees that are operating processes are completely competent in the operating procedures associated with this process. New employees receive basic training in operations followed by on-the-job supervision until they are deemed competent to work independently. Refresher training is provided at least every two (2) years and more frequently as needed.



Mechanical Integrity

Jena UC carries out highly documented maintenance checks on process equipment to ensure proper functions. Equipment examined by these checks includes among others; pressure vessels, relief and vent systems, and any piping. Maintenance operations are carried out by qualified personnel with previous training in maintenance practices. Furthermore, these personnel are offered specialized training as needed. Any equipment deficiencies identified by the maintenance checks are corrected in a safe timely manner.



Management of Change

Written procedures are in place at Jena UC to manage changes in technology, equipment and procedures. Process operators, maintenance personnel or any other employee whose job tasks are affected by a modification in process conditions are promptly made aware of and offered training to deal with the modification.



Pre-startup Reviews

Pre-startup safety reviews related to new processes
and to modifications in established processes are conducted as a regular practice at Jena UC. These reviews are conducted to confirm that construction, equipment, operating, and maintenance procedures are suitable for safe startup prior to placing equipment into operations.



Compliance Audits

Jena UC conducts audits on a regular basis to determine whether the provisions set out under the RMP rule are being implemented. These audits are carried out at least every three (3) years and any corrective actions required as a result of the audits are undertaken in a safe and prompt manner.



Incident Investigation

Jena UC promptly investigates any incident(s) that has resulted in, or could reasonably result in a catastrophic release of a regulated substance. These investigations are undertaken to identify the situation leading to the incident as well as any corrective actions to prevent the releases from reoccurring. All reports are retained for a minimum of five (5) years.



Employee Participation

Jena UC truly believes that process safety management and accident prevention is a team effort. BPC employees are strongly encouraged to express their views concerning accident prevention issues and to recommend improvements. In addition, our employees have access to all information created as part of the facility's implementation to the RMP rule in particular information resulting form process hazard analysis.



Contractors

On occasion, Jena UC hires contractors to conduct specialized maintenance and construction activities. Prior to selecting a contractor involving a covered process, a thorough evaluation of safety performance of the contractor is carried out. Jena UC has a strict policy of informing the contractors of known potential hazards related the contractor's work and the processes. Contractors are also informed of all the procedures for emergency response should an accidental release of a regulated substance occur.



4. Five-year Accident History

Je
na UC has had an excellent record of preventing accidental releases of a regulated substance over the past five (5) years. Due to our stringent release prevention policies, there has been no accidental release of Acrolein [2-Propenal] during this period.



5. Emergency Response Plan

Jena UC carries a written emergency response plan to deal with accidental releases of hazardous materials. The plan includes all aspects of emergency response including adequate first aid and medical treatment, evacuations, notification of local emergency response agencies and the public.

To ensure proper functioning, our emergency response equipment is regularly inspected and serviced. In addition, the plan is promptly updated to reflect any pertinent changes taking place within our processes that would require a modified emergency response.



6. Planned Changes to Improve Safety

Our HSE management system continuously strives to improve procedures and equipment to ensure safety for our employees, our communities, and the environment. In line with our HSE Policy Statement of continuous improvement, we plan to build on our existing relationships with our community and emergency responders.
