Global Coatings Network News:
On June 24, the State Administration of Work Safety held a special meeting on the containment of accidents with large hazardous chemicals and an accident warning meeting for central enterprises.
The purpose of the meeting is to draw lessons from accidents, urge relevant regions and central enterprises to recognize the situation, implement the key work arrangements for this year, and effectively prevent and contain major chemical and hazardous chemical accidents.
Global Coatings Network News:
The meeting pointed out that since 2016, there have been no major chemical accidents in the country, a decrease of 1 year-on-year.
However, there were 11 major chemical accidents and 32 deaths.
The trend of major accidents has not been effectively curbed.
Chemicals and hazardous chemicals are safe.
The production situation remains severe and complex.
In addition, on June 14, Sinochem Blue Sky Group Zhejiang Lantian Environmental Protection Fluorine Materials Co.
experienced a ethylene fluoride explosion accident, causing 2 deaths; on June 15, a fire accident occurred at Sinopec Shijiazhuang Refining and Chemical Company, causing 4 deaths; In recent years, Sinopec Yangzi Petrochemical Company has experienced successive accidents, which have caused great social impact.
The successive accidents of relevant central enterprises have revealed that there are still weak links in the safety production of hazardous chemicals and urgently need to be strengthened.
Traceability: From issuance to implementation of hazardous chemicals management regulations
my country’s hazardous chemicals management regulations were officially promulgated by the State Council on January 26, 2002, but it was not until 2011 that they were revised and passed by the State Council for implementation.
The twists and turns are unknown, but after the explosion accident in Tianjin Binhai New Area on August 12, 2015 , The management of hazardous chemicals is like a clockwork, carried out in various places in an orderly and efficient manner.
Since August 2015, the State Administration of Work Safety (hereinafter referred to as the State Administration of Work Safety) has taken the lead in the overall management of hazardous chemicals, and has vigorously promoted the special rectification of hazardous chemicals by the safety supervision bureaus across the country to protect the life and property of the public.
While bringing the gospel, it also makes chemical products-related companies keep a string of tension and pay attention to safe production.
The "hazardous chemicals" mentioned in my country's hazardous chemicals management regulations refer to highly toxic chemicals and other chemicals that have the properties of toxic, corrosive, explosive, burning, and combustion-supporting, and are harmful to the human body, facilities, and the environment.
Although paint and other coatings are not directly attributable to hazardous chemicals, their toxic, flammable and explosive properties make coatings still need to be classified as hazardous materials.
The xylene and other substances used in the production of paint products are clearly attributable to the hazardous chemical inventory within.
Now: I'm clinging to dangerous chemicals like a bird, but the progress is worrying
June 2016 is the 15th safe production month in the country.
This year's theme is "strengthening the concept of safe development and improving the safety quality of the whole people".
Recently, various provinces and cities across the country have successively carried out special rectification work on the safety of hazardous chemicals to investigate and control the hidden dangers of hazardous chemicals throughout the flag, reduce the safety risks in the production, storage, operation, transportation, and use of hazardous chemicals, and further improve the safety supervision of hazardous chemicals.
Management capabilities, strengthen the awareness of responsibility for disaster prevention and mitigation, in order to achieve the purpose of curbing the occurrence of hazardous chemical accidents.
Only in June and a month, the voice of focusing on the special rectification of hazardous chemicals sounded across the country (portal: special topic_safe month pays attention to the special rectification of hazardous chemicals): Jiangxi Provincial Work Safety Supervision Bureau deployed a special rectification action for safety in the field of hazardous chemicals ; Hubei Province: Violation of dangerous chemical products will be strictly investigated; Guangdong introduced a special rectification work plan for the safety of hazardous chemical storage places; Changde, Hunan carried out special rectification of hazardous chemical production safety; Jilin City special rectification of hazardous chemical products and safety production agreement The talks work conference was held; Nantong City deployed a special rectification action on the safety of hazardous chemicals; Suzhou City concentrated on the special rectification work on the safety of hazardous chemicals.
However, how effective is it, let us take a look at the results of the Shanghai Quality Supervision Bureau's recent random inspections on hazardous chemicals:
The Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision recently announced the results of the 2016 Shanghai hazardous chemical industrial coating product quality supervision spot check.
This time 51 batches of products were spot checked, and 0 batches were unqualified after inspection.
According to the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Quality and Technical Supervision, industrial coating products for hazardous chemicals are products listed in the product catalog for national industrial product production licenses.
There are a total of 37 certified manufacturing companies in Shanghai.
The plan is to conduct random inspections of 37 manufacturing companies in Shanghai.
There are 32 products that have actually been sampled.
Another 5 companies have not sampled samples due to the suspension of production.
This supervision and spot check is based on GB/T25249-2010 "Amino Alkyd Resin Coatings", GB/T25251-2010 "Alkyd Resin Coatings", GB/T25252-2010 "Phenolic Resin Anticorrosive Coatings", GB/T25259-2010 "Passed Vinyl Chloride Resin Coatings, GB/T25263-2010 Chlorinated Rubber Anticorrosive Coatings, GB/T25264-2010 Solvent-based Acrylic Resin Coatings, GB/T25271-2010 Nitro Coatings, GB/T27806-2011 Oxygen Asphalt Anticorrosive Coating", HG/T2245-2012 "Nitro Pencil Paint", HG/T3378-2003 (2009) "Nitro Lacquer Thinner", HG/T3380-2003 (2015) "Amino Paint Thinner", HG /T3668-2009 (2015) "Zinc-Rich Primer" and other national standards and related standard requirements.
The seemingly perfect test results have satisfied all parties in the society, but the frequency of accidents has not decreased.
Under the purse of the Achievement Project, to whom will the public's safety be delivered?
When going out of the city and entering the park, the safety of hazardous chemicals companies depends on relocation?
After the Tianjin explosion in 2015, all provinces across the country set off an upsurge of special rectification of dangerous chemical safety:
At the executive meeting of the Guangzhou Municipal Government held on August 31, the meeting decided that Guangzhou would relocate 18 hazardous chemical companies before the end of the year.
On September 20th, Shanghai Port City’s dangerous goods logistics yard was officially relocated.
At the same time, Shanghai Port’s new dangerous goods warehouse will be put into use at Luchao Port.
As of the end of October 2015, the figures given by the Jiangsu Chemical Industry Association are: Jiangsu Province has shut down more than 7,000 chemical companies, and thousands of companies have completed their relocations by leaving the city and entering the park.
At present, the overall admission rate of chemical companies in the province has exceeded 60%, and that of Sunan has exceeded 80%.
The provinces across the country are speeding up the reporting of the relocation plans of chemical companies, and the Minister of Industry and Information Technology Miao Wei has previously stated publicly that there are nearly 1,000 chemical companies in the country that need to be relocated and reformed, requiring about 400 billion yuan of funds.
It can be said that the 8.
12 accident brought the relocation of chemical enterprises across the country to a climax.
The author of Huicong Coatings Network once wrote that production and logistics are accident-prone links, and hazardous chemical companies are integrated through relocation; the relocation is used to transform and upgrade hazardous chemical companies.
At the same time, the author said that the relocation of hazardous chemical companies has become an inevitable choice, but relocation is by no means a simple displacement.
The relative geographical location changes and economic benefits are easily affected.
What should I do about the black warehouses that are prevalent under the gap of hazardous chemical storage? deal with? (Portal: How to implement the safety issues of hazardous chemicals companies going out of the city and entering the park?)
"According to statistics, there are more than 3,300 industrial parks of various types in the country, including more than 380 chemical parks above the provincial level.
So far, more than 45% of chemical companies and chemical companies above designated size are basically in the chemical parks.
It is in coastal areas that have built a number of parks relying on large-scale refining and chemical projects.
” said Wang Haijun, deputy director of the National Work Safety Emergency Rescue Command Center, and Hong Yu, deputy director of the Coordination Department of the National Work Safety Emergency Rescue Command Center.
Li Zuojun, deputy director of the Institute of Resources and Environmental Policy of the Development Research Center of the State Council, said that relocation is the best way to upgrade the chemical industry.
Only by holding a strategy of going out can we win long-term development.
On June 3, the State Administration of Work Safety issued the "Opinions on Containing Major Accidents of Hazardous Chemicals and Fireworks and Firecrackers".
The opinions highlighted that a batch of outdated technologies should be eliminated, a batch of companies with poor safety assurance capabilities should be shut down to effectively prevent hazardous chemicals.
We will resolutely curb serious and serious accidents with fireworks and firecrackers.
The release of this work opinion shows that the State Administration of Work Safety is determined to curb serious and serious accidents of hazardous chemicals.
It is believed that the consequences of directly shutting down the enterprise are difficult for the enterprise to bear.
This is used as a warning to enhance the enterprise's awareness of safe production.
Under the increasingly pressing policy guidance, it is imperative for chemical companies, including Tuqi, to go out of the city and enter the park.
Under this premise, companies should focus on safe production, scientific management of hazardous chemicals storage and logistics, and consciously improve Safety index, strengthen self-inspection; government departments should also pass standards to delineate boundaries for enterprises related to hazardous chemicals, scientifically and strictly manage excess hazardous chemicals, minimize major accidents and avoid unexpected accidents.
