Contain It! is mobile major accident hazard awareness training.  It is a 2 hour program, comprising a selection of outdoor demonstrations.  Each demonstration has been structured to clearly portray a particular process safety concept, enable an interactive discussion about the relevant controls, and highlight relevant industry incidents where a major accident event has resulted.

  • Contain It! promotes process safety hazard awareness.
  • Contain It! promotes process safety-related conversations.
  • Contain It! provides a ‘working memory’ of the effects that may be experienced with a loss of containment, and its escalation to a fire or explosion.
  • Contain It! makes major accident hazards ‘real’.

Let seasoned fire professionals explain flammable gas properties and the behaviour of fires with safe controlled demonstrations.

Contain It! is led by experienced and qualified instructors.  Participants will feel the heat of a flash fire, hear the sound of a pressure release, and witness a boiling liquid expanding vapour explosion (BLEVE), amongst a variety of other experiences. 

This unique experiential learning activity is relevant to anyone working in our industry, particularly Operations & Maintenance and Support personnel.

Challenge

Our industry employs a large number of people from a variety of backgrounds, many of whom do not have previous experience in the oil and gas industry. Situational awareness of major accident hazards is essential for everyone working in the industry.  Although many companies conduct process safety awareness training in the classroom or on-line, very few personnel have experienced a practical loss of containment scenario. 

Fire training grounds provide the opportunity for personnel to experience loss of containment scenarios, however these facilities are not located in proximity to industry locations.  It is expensive to transport the workforce to these facilities.

Solution

Develop a high-quality, cost effective training program, comprised of technical demonstrations designed to promote interaction.  Roll out this training at work sites throughout Queensland.  Provide qualified and experienced instructors to ensure safe delivery of the training. 

Result

The Working Group has developed Contain It! - a transportable interactive training program aimed at educating the workforce about major accident hazard events and the part people play in preventing a major accident. 

A customised mobile training rig and associated equipment for the training program has been built. This allows Contain It! to be delivered to the workplaces throughout regional Queensland.

Coming Next

The Working Group is now preparing to launch Contain It! in WA/NT.  This will include reviewing the Contain It! delivery model for WA/NT needs.
