Over deze norm
This International Standard describes the working environment and human factor challenges that can be expected when operating oil and gas installations in Arctic environments/climate. This International Standard provides principles and generic guidelines for the design and operation of oil and gas installations both onshore and offshore. The aim is to ensure optimal health, safety, human performance and decision-making conditions for people working on oil and gas installations in Arctic conditions. This International Standard applies to the design and operation of new installations and structures, and to modification of existing installations for operation in the Arctic environment. This also includes offshore and onshore exploration and accommodation units for such activities. This International Standard is divided into three main parts. The first part (Clause 5) describes the general principles and guidelines for risk management. The second part (Clause 6) describes the general working environment (WE) hazards found in many workplaces, and provides some threshold limit values (TLVs) and design references that can be especially challenging in Arctic conditions. The third part (Clause 7 to Clause 9) addresses the climatic conditions expected in the Arctic. Clause 8 describes WE design and technical solutions, while Clause 9 describes WE operational requirements for prevention and management of cold-related problems.
