PSDP for Combined Heat and Power Facility

Malone Group was retained to assess health and safety risks in the process of creating a combined heat and power room within the Pfizer plant.

Acting as PSDP, we prepared a health and safety plan for this project.

The Plan includes:
  • An investigation of the potential risks in the work to be done
  • References to standards and legislation that must be complied with
  • Recommendations on dealing with the associated risks
  • Responsibilities of client, PSCS, and hired contractors
Some Key Determinations:
  • Work was done on an active pharmaceutical production facility, precautions had to be taken to ensure the safety of Pfizer’s employees as well as their ability to continue to do their work uninterrupted.
  • Due to the nature of pharmaceutical work, there was a possibility that workers could be exposed to toxic or otherwise hazardous materials which workers needed to be protected against
  • Construction of a CHP facility requires extensive heavy lifting, electrical work, power tool usage, etc, all of which come with their own risks and dangers that must be accounted for
Specific Objectives:
  • Survey potential risks associated with this project
  • Provide a report that will aid those involved with the project in ensuring the safety of themselves and of others
  • Ensure that all works are done in a way that complies with current safety standards and legislation
  • Determine necessary safety standards for the fire detection systems
  • Determine potential risks to the people and property involved in the construction of Pfizer’s combined heat and power room
  • Provide solutions and suggestions for dealing with these risks to ensure the safety of everyone involved
  • Give the people involved in the project going forward a template on which to base further safety plans as new risks and dangers become apparent
  • Any injured employees are properly cared for
