Hazard: Use of ladders

How this hazards manifests:

Fixed ladders inside the wind towers.

Typical Control Measures

Use a fully tested and maintained PPE-based fall protection system; ensure there's a compliant safety cage. Statutory inspection of ladders/lifts/fall arrest equipment.

Hazard: Turbidity/Visibility (underwater, overwater)

How this hazards manifests:

Fog, mist, haze, silt causing restricted visibility.

Typical Control Measures

Avoid working in bad weather conditions.

Hazard: Vessel collision

How this hazards manifests:

Vessel traffic

Typical Control Measures

Notices to mariners; maintain warning lights; traffic management plan.

Component failure (mechanical, structural failure)

Hazard present in: Planning and Design, Construction, Commissioning & testing, Operation, Maintenance & Services, Decommissioning

How this hazards manifests:

To be considered, i.e. fail-to-safe modes, e.g. to ensure all critical component failures fail to a safe condition and prevent additional runaway failure events;

Typical Control Measures

HAZOP and HAZAN studies conducted during the design phases to confirm structural and safety integrity.
