ENL 29/16Key Aspects of Environmental Hazards Associated with Commissioning and Decommissioning of Installations on Customer Sites

Installation and removal of equipment on or from a customer’s site as part of engineering industrial and medical gas installations is a frequent activity for EIGA members.

This newsletter is produced to highlight the main environmental hazards associated with this activity and provide an overview of how the risks can be controlled.

These equipment installations are generally small scale activities and the hazards can be overlooked and not identified and controlled.

This newsletter highlights a number of key environmental hazards and some methods of control that are relevant to commissioning and decommissioning of small installations on customer sites such as tanks, pipework, vessels , compressors, pumps, filling stations, PSAs rather than larger on site gas plants.
