As an engineer who has been out of school for 35+ years, I have learned that certain processes have their own inherent dangers, e.g. A Refinery can have H2S exposure, Chemical Plants can have steam vacuum jets that cause corrosives to rain down on cold days, etc. Our Company sends engineers to all sorts of facilities and many of the engineers have little plant experience. I am looking for help in pinpointing specific unique hazards that are associated with specific types of facilites, e.g. Refineries, Chemical Plants, Paper and Pulp Processing, Pharamaceuticals, Food Processing, etc.. I am not looking for the general hazards that we find in all facilities. The companies that we visit should have this information, but the smaller companies are not as good at providing this type of information.
