Executive Summary

Executive Summary



Accidental Release Prevention and Emergency Response Policies



Martin Operating Partnership L.P. (MOP) operates the Arcadia Rail Terminal Facility (herein after referred to as the Facility or ART). The facility handles substances considered hazardous by the U.S. EPA and has implemented a comprehensive accidental release prevention program that covers areas such as design, installation, operating procedures, maintenance, and employee training associated with the processes at the facility.





In addition to training and procedures, the facility has installed redundant safety devices in the process to prevent releases from occurring should equipment fail. If an accidental release should occur, the facility is prepared to work with the Arcadia Fire Department, and other interested authorities, to mitigate any release, inform all affected parties and minimize the impact of the release to people and the environment.



Regulated Substances Handled



Arcadia rail facility handles Butane, including Refinery Grade Butane (RGB), Propane, and Iso-Butane. The chemicals handled are transported to the facility via rail cars and unloaded into pressurized storage tanks. From the tanks, the chemicals are transferred to a separate facility downstream of this facility. The chemicals may also be transferred from the downstream facility to the rail cars.



General Accidental Release Prevention Program and Chemical Specific Prevention Steps



Butane, Propane and Iso-Butane are managed as required under RMP Program 3 (or Subpart D) and OSHA's PSM program. Program 3 requires that ART have the process safety information for the hazardous chemicals, conduct a process hazard analysis (PHA), create operating procedures, conduct training, implement a mechanical integrity program, implement a management of change program, conduct pre-startup reviews, conduct compliance audits, conduct incident investigations, ensure employee participation, issue hot work permits
, and include contractors in the release prevention program.



Process Safety information



Safety Data Sheets (SDS) are maintained on site and online and are readily available to any employee for review. The SDS contains all of the information required by 40 CFR ?68.65(b)(1)-(7).





Information pertaining to the technology of the process at arcadia rail facility is contained in block flow diagrams (PFD) and Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID). The chemistry of the substances stored, maximum inventory, safe upper and lower temperature, pressure, and flow limits, and the evaluation of the consequences of deviations are all maintained on site and are managed by the PSM Coordinator.



Process Hazard Analysis



A PHA will be conducted and then re-evaluated every 5 years. The PHA is conducted by qualified staff which consists of corporate Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) staff and on site staff. The methods utilized to complete the PHA have been what-if analyses and Hazard and Operability Study (HAZOP). Other methodologies as allowed by 40 CFR ?68.67b(1)-(7) may be used in future updates of the PHA if applicable.



Operating Procedures



Operating procedures are written by competent staff, such as facility managers or lead operators, which have experience with the tasks outlined in the procedure. The procedures include all of the elements described in 40 CFR ?68.69(a)(1)-(3), are kept onsite and made available to any employee for review. The operating procedures are reviewed as needed or when a management of change occurs and are certified annually. Safe work practices have also been developed as required in 40 CFR ?68.69(d).



Training



Each new employee at Martin is trained according to his/her job role. Those employees at arcadia rail facility undergo initial awareness training as well as specific training on procedures they may use in operating a process. The employees are refreshed at least once every three years and their training i
s documented and kept on site for review.



Mechanical Integrity



Martin utilizes trained professionals for inspection and testing of process equipment, and utilizes written procedures to aid in proper operation and maintenance of the equipment. The process equipment described in 40 CFR ?68.73(a)(1)-(6) are inspected based on the written procedures developed by Martin or third party procedures (i.e. ASTM). Any deficiencies found by the mechanical integrity group that are outside acceptable limits are corrected before further use or in a safe and timely manner when necessary means are taken to assure safe operation.



Management of Change



Written procedures have been developed to track and manage changes to operating procedures, process equipment, chemicals, technology, process safety information, and, changes to stationary sources that affect a covered process. The procedures assure that the considerations found in 40 CFR ?68.75(b)(1)-(5) are addressed prior to any change.



Those employees affected by the change are notified and trained on the change prior to start-up of the process or affected part of the process.



Pre-Startup Review



Pre-startup safety reviews will be conducted prior to startup of any new stationary sources or any modified stationary sources, when those modifications are significant enough to require a change in the process safety information. The pre-startup safety review confirms that prior to the introduction of regulated substances to a process: construction and equipment is in accordance with design specifications; safety, operating, maintenance, and emergency procedures are in place and are adequate; for new sources, a PHA has been performed and recommendations have been resolved or implemented before startup; and modified sources meet the requirements contained in the management of change; training of each employee involved in operating the process has been completed.



Compliance Audits



Compliance audits are conducted
once every three years to verify that procedures and practices developed under the RMP rules are adequate and are being followed. The audits are conducted by a team that consists of Martin Corporate EHS personnel or an outside third party who are knowledgeable in the process. The compliance audits are available on-site for review.



Incident Investigations



Martin investigates each incident which results in or could reasonably have resulted in a catastrophic release of a regulated substance. Incident investigations are conducted by both on-site and corporate EHS personnel. Once the investigation has been completed, a report is prepared and includes those items required in 40 CFR ?68.81(d).



Employee Participation



Employees are included in PHAs and have access to PHAs that have been completed. Employees are also included in the writing and updating of operating procedures as well as the management of change process and other covered elements of the RMP.



Hot Work Permit



Hot work permits are issues by operators for hot work conducted on or near processes covered by the RMP rule. The hot work permit is written to address the elements described in 40 CFR ?68.85(b).



Contractors



Martin requires that contractors participate in the safety programs implemented by the facility. Contractors are evaluated based on safety performance prior to being selected to perform work at the facility. Contractors are trained and documentation of successful completion of the training is required to be kept by both Martin and the contractor.



Five-year Accident History



There have been no accidents at ART during the past five years.



Emergency Response Program



ART has an emergency action plan place, in accordance with OSHA's PSM rules. The plan includes appropriate procedures for notifying emergency responders. The facility is listed in the community emergency response plan. The facility's emergency response plan is kept onsite and is available for review
.



Planned Changes to Improve Safety



Safety improvement is an on-going process at MUS. MUS will be implementing the ERA system

which will improve compliance with modules for management of change, pre start up safety review,

compliance tracking, and training.
