TRAINING (A Clarification)

This is a real Lazarus in that it keeps getting resurrected time after time. Hopefully this clarification and quotes puts it to bed. Ed

CROIERG receives continual requests for: -

  1. Information on the CROIERG Emergency Responder Training Courses

  2. Clarification on where the Australian Dangerous Goods Code (ADG7) specifically states that training is required for industry emergency responders

It’s as clear as a bell in the associated ADG7 Regulations and the full extract is published below for information

The complete ADG7 and the Regulations are downloadable in the Member’s Area of this website

Extract from the: -

DANGEROUS GOODS (ROAD AND RAIL) TRANSPORT REGULATION 2009

Under the Dangerous Goods (Road and Rail Transport) Act 2008

Division 1.3 Training

1.3.1 Instruction and training

(1) This {clause} applies to any task involved in the transport of dangerous goods, including the following:

(a) packing dangerous goods;

(b) consigning dangerous goods;

(c) loading dangerous goods;

(d) unloading dangerous goods;

(e) marking packages and overpacks;

(f) placarding transport units;

(g) preparing transport documentation;

(h) maintaining vehicles and equipment used in the transport of dangerous goods;

(i) driving a vehicle transporting dangerous goods;

(j) being the consignee of dangerous goods;

(k) following the appropriate procedures in accordance with {this subordinate law} in a dangerous situation.

(2) A person who is responsible for management or control of a task must not employ, engage or permit someone else to perform the task if the other person:

(a) has not received, or is not receiving, appropriate instruction and training to ensure that he or she is able to perform the task safely and in accordance with {this subordinate law}; or

Regulation 1.3.2

(b) is not appropriately supervised in performing the task to ensure that he or she is able to perform the task safely and in accordance with {this subordinate law}. (20.1, amd/2)

Offence provision.

(3) A person must not manage, control or supervise a task unless the person has received instruction and training to enable him or her to manage, control or supervise another person to perform the task safely and in accordance with {this subordinate law}.

Offence provision.

AND

If the above is not proof positive the Guidelines for the Preparation of a Transport Emergency Response Plan (as required by ADG7) state: -

TRAINING

Training should provide the capability for rapid and competent response, vital to success in an emergency situation.

An emergency situation often provides an unfamiliar, emotional and hostile working environment for the responders.

Anyone with little training or experience will have difficulty dealing effectively with the incident.

All personnel who have an active role in the plan must be trained in the key aspects of the plan.

NORTHERN TERRITORY ROLLOUT OF NON-SNIFFABLE FUEL PASSES MILESTONE WITH LAUNCH OF DARWIN STORAGE TANK (NT)

December 8, 2014 Darwin NT

“8 million litre Darwin Storage tank

A key piece of infrastructure in the rollout of low-aromatic fuel designed to combat petrol sniffing in the Northern Territory has been launched in Darwin, with the repurposing of a bulk storage tank.

Federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Nigel Scullion said the eight-million-litre tank at East Arm meant a regular supply of low-aromatic fuel was now available to communities across the Top End ahead of the fuel being rolled out to several towns and communities in the near future.

Targeted for rollout:

  • Tennant Creek region

  • Katherine region, including Mataranka and Pine Creek

  • East Kimberley region, including Kununurra, Wyndham, Halls Creek and Fitzroy Crossing

  • Cape York region, including Weipa

  • Queensland Gulf of Carpentaria region, including Camooweal, Mount Isa, Cloncurry, Normanton, Karumba and Burketown

  • Coober Pedy region

For the first time, the NT has its own supply of the fuel, which is a central part of a national strategy to combat petrol sniffing.

Petrol sniffing dropped by up to 94 per cent in areas where low-aromatic fuel was available, Senator Scullion's office said.

"This is a very practical solution to a gap in the strategy because there was some tension around actually ensuring that the fuel was arriving in the communities in a timely fashion," Senator Scullion said.

He said the fuel will be rolled out in communities that have already been identified as having a petrol sniffing problems, starting with Katherine and Tennant Creek.

"We're also rolling it out in Queensland and the gulf of Carpentaria," he said.

BULK TANKER EMERGENCY RESPONDER CARD

The number of Bulk Tanker Emergency Responder Card holders is steadily increasing across a number of companies.

The list is steadily growing

CROIERG are working with the FPAA (Fire Protection Association Australasia) who administer the card process and data base in providing a communication system whereby card verification can be electronically carried out if required by the emergency services and/or others who need to on an official basis.

We hope to have this in place in early 2015

The more Card Holders we have the better is the preparation for an incident response and these qualified people are then able to work closely with the attending emergency services is a coordinated manner

WORLD HERITAGE LISTED RIVER UNDER THREAT FROM POLLUTION (NSW)

December 14, 2014 Sydney NSW

 


Wollangambe River scene

 

The world-heritage listed Wollangambe River, which runs through spectacular canyons in the Blue Mountains, is under threat from pollution flowing into its upper reaches from a Lithgow coal mine.

The river is being pumped with waste water discharged from the Clarence Collier coal mine, which is harming the ecology of the waterway.

Scientists from the University of Western Sydney School of Science and Health, claim licence restrictions placed by the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) on mine pollution are not enough. They want an investigation to identify all the contaminants that are flowing from the mine.

"The river is beautiful - it really is a scenically amazing place, but the sad reality is that the mine is silently poisoning the place and we have no idea how this is affecting the wildlife," said Dr Ian Wright from UWS.

An EPA spokeswoman said they are already reviewing the mine licence with the aim of tightening limits on nickel and salinity in discharges as part of a legally binding pollution reduction program. She said the EPA had started its own investigation into the impact of the mine water discharge on the river ecosystem.

TRUCKERS SAVE LIVES IN CRASH (Canada)

November 27, 2014 Canada

Two truck drivers involved in a fiery crash on Highway 881 in Alberta owe their lives to several fellow drivers who stopped to help. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police credited the drivers for preventing additional loss of life in the fatal accident.

The roadway was icy Saturday morning when a tractor trailer hauling fuel lost control and slid into a logging truck. In the collision, the logs were knocked loose and flew into a pickup truck, killing the driver instantly.

“It was pretty much like a war zone,” says truck driver Alvin Brockman who came upon the crash just moments later. “The logging truck logs are strewn all over the place. The pickup’s cab is just squished.”

Brockman scrambled out of his cab to join truck driver Mohamad Moghrabi, who was already parked and assessing the scene.

Other truckers stopped as well. Brockman, a trained search-and-rescue worker, took the lead role. The area was soaked with diesel fuel from the tanker truck, and flames from the damaged vehicle threatened to spread over the entire scene. Together, Brockman and Moghrabi tended to the two injured truck drivers.

The logging truck driver had managed to extract himself from his mangled truck and was found dragging himself across the snow to escape the fire.

Meanwhile, the fuel truck driver was also exiting his vehicle with blood gushing from his head. Brockman and Moghrabi got the injured men to safe locations to await emergency workers. They bandaged wounds and handed out blankets, while they waited 45 minutes for police to reach the remote location.

“You feel so helpless,” says Brockman. “You can’t do anything but just stand there, do nothing, and wait for everyone to show up.”

When help finally arrived, both of the trucks in the accident were engulfed in flames. The injured drivers were airlifted to a hospital.

Despite receiving praise from the RCMP for his critical role in helping his fellow drivers, Brockman has been shaken by the experience.

“That’s going to haunt me,” he says. “It’s just something you try to get over.”

Four years ago a devastating fuel truck explosion in the Democratic Republic of Congo claimed the lives of 245 people. The explosion in the eastern town of Sange erupted after a fuel truck overturned and people gathered around it to siphon off its contents, despite warnings from the driver that it might blow up.

The fireball created by the blast spread to a cinema hall where a crowd had gathered to follow World Cup football matches in South Africa.

NANA VIOLATED OIL SPILL PREVENTION & RESPONSE SAFETY RULES (Alaska)

December 9, 2014 Alaska

EPA inspectors at the Deadhorse facility noted that, while they had a spill prevention plan, they had not submitted the required and more-detailed Facility Response Plan to the EPA despite having more than one million gallons of fuel on site.

Inspectors also noted that on-site NANA Oilfield Services personnel were not properly trained in spill response and could not answer basic facility response questions.

In addition, they found that a, now removed, jet fuel pipeline running to the air strip lacked secondary containment precautions that would prevent additional risk to the environment in the event of a release.

GAS TANKER CRASHES, EXPLODES INTO FIREBALL ON I-15 IN UTAH COUNTY (Utah)


Tanker fire in Utah

November 28, 2014 Spanish Fork Utah USA

A tanker explosion and the ensuing fire shut down I-15 near the U.S. 6 off-ramp Friday.

"I just saw this massive plume, like a mushroom. … My first inclination was like a bomb or something went off," said one motorist who witnessed the accident aftermath shortly after the crash.

Other motorists rushed to the burning tanker and reportedly pulled the 28-year-old driver, from Colorado, out of the vehicle. The man, whose name was not immediately released, was flown by medical helicopter to the Intermountain Burn Centre in critical condition, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

About 2:20 p.m., a tanker hauling approximately 8,500 gallons of gasoline was trying to go from southbound I-15 to eastbound U.S. 6 when the vehicle went off the left side of the ramp for an unknown reason, down the embankment, crashed and exploded, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

7 DIE IN BRAZIL IN HEAD-ON CRASH OF BUS AND TANKER TRUCK (Brazil)

December 15, 2014 Piaui BRAZIL

At least seven people died Monday in a crash between a public transport bus and a tanker truck loaded with fuel on a highway in the north-eastern Brazilian state of Piaui, officials said.

The crash occurred around 10:00 a.m. local time at just 3 kilometres (almost 2 miles) from Monsenhor Gil, a municipality in the central part of the state, Federal Highway Police said.

Only three people on the bus, which was apparently carrying eight passengers and two drivers, survived the violent crash of the two vehicles and the ensuing tanker explosion, and were taken with serious injuries to a hospital in Teresina, the capital of Piaui.

Among the survivors were the bus driver and a 5-year-old girl who suffered burns on her face and legs.

The bus of the Transbrasiliana line had left the city of Goiania on Sunday night and was headed for Teresina.

According to witnesses, the bus driver was apparently trying to pass another vehicle on a curve and crashed head-on into the tanker truck.

TANKER HAULING ACID STUCK IN MEDICINE PARK (Oklahoma)

November 14, 2014 Medicine Park, Oklahoma USA

Tanker stuck in Medicine Park

MA tanker carrying 45,000 pounds of sulphuric acid is currently stuck on Big Rock Road near State Highway 58 in Medicine Park.

The Medicine Park Police Chief says the driver was headed to the water treatment plant around noon when he took Highway 58 to Big Rock Road instead of going down State Highway 49. If you've ever driven through the area, you know there's a steep grade with a lot of sharp turns.

At some point, the back end of the tanker went off the road and became stuck. The Medicine Park Fire Department and police, along with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and the Comanche County Sheriff's Department, responded.

They closed off the road that leads to the Big Rock Estates for safety reasons.

The police chief says they are waiting on an empty tanker from Texas to arrive and transfer the acid so they can safely remove the stuck tanker from the road. He also says the company is flying out a safety specialist to monitor the transfer.

They expect to begin transferring the acid Friday morning when they have daylight to work in. The road will remain closed until at least noon Friday.

A 62-year-old man faces a careless driving charge after his tanker truck carrying diesel fuel crashed on the eastbound Highway 401 at Highway 115 in the Newcastle area.

The tractor-trailer hauling two tankers hit a bridge and overturned into a ditch just after 2 a.m. on Tuesday.

The impact of the crash ripped open the tankers, with one tank spilling around 20,000 litres of diesel, some of it flowing into Wilmot Creek. The driver of the truck suffered minor injuries.

Road crews are cleaning up the spill, and Ontario Provincial Police say the clean-up is expected to take most of the day.

Officials with the Ministry of Environment will be examining the spill in the creek.
