Haydarpasa Chemical Spill Response

Chemical Spill Response at Haydarpasa Port

Hailstones the size of golf balls and torrential rains battered Istanbul on Thursday in a freak storm that flooded roads, felled trees and brought air traffic and rush hour transport to a standstill in Turkey’s biggest city.
A severe thunderstorm caused a crane to collapse and fire to break out at Istanbul’s Haydarpasa Port on July 27. The Large crane toppled at Haydarpasa port, near the Bosporus tunnel, causing an explosion and massive blaze.
According to news reports, oil barrels overturned the crane and caused an explosion. At least one person was injured in the fire, which was later contained.
After the cranes collapse, it occurs leakage in the containers on the land and chemical spills go to seawater in Marmara Sea area during bad weather. The estimated (one) 1 ton of spillage happen at the port. Mavi Deniz Tier 3 Oil Spill Equipment are standby in the harbor for an emergency in a 40” Emergency Container. 100 m Oil Boom is launched around the port, and chemical absorbent pads and booms, spill kits and portable vacuum machines are used to collect to the chemical on the land and water. Dangerous wastes are transported to licensed Izaydas Waste Reception Factory. In 2-week time operation has been finished.

1. Assess and Communicate

In the case of any spill, workers should alert others in the area so they can evacuate or stay clear of the incident. Employees should also contact your facility’s emergency response coordinator or manager. Clear communication right away will ensure everyone is safe and secure.
During this step, employees should make sure to stay clear of the spilled substance, as stepping in it could lead to slipping and falling or to unsafe exposure to the chemical.

2. Prepare

Getting ready to clean up a chemical spill requires two types of preparation. First, make the area by ensuring proper ventilation is available. This is especially important, for example, if the location of the spill is a confined space.
Once the area is safe, those responsible for cleaning up the spill should get one of your company’s spill kits. (Be sure to have spill kits on hand at all times and in sizes appropriate for incidents that may occur at your facility.) Then responding employees should put on any necessary personal protective equipment (PPE), which may include goggles, gloves, a lab coat or protective suit, and even respiratory protection. Whether a respiratory device is needed will depend on what chemical was spilled and in what quantity.

3. Stop and Contain

Ideally, the previous two steps should be done very quickly so the spill itself can be handled as rapidly as possible. Once prepared, the person responding to the spill should stop the flow of the liquid. If a container fell over and spilled a chemical, this is as simple as setting the container upright. If a container was punctured or is leaking, the responder can put a cap or putty over the opening or place a clean container underneath the leak. This simple step will ensure the spill is as small as possible and doesn’t impact other areas in your facility.
Next, use absorbents from the spill kit such as pads, socks, and pillows. In the case of some chemicals, a neutralizing acid or base powder may be used, too. Personnel should begin by placing the absorbent socks around the edges of the spill to create a dike, but not too close to the chemical. If the liquid is flowing rapidly, placing these absorbers too close to the flow might mean they cannot contain the spill. Once the liquid is contained, the rest of the chemical should be covered with absorbent pads.
Finally, all of the chemicals should be soaked up using the appropriate absorbent contents in the spill kit. Use the brushes, scoops or dustpans provided in your spill kit to collect the materials.

4. Clean Up

After the spill is soaked up, it’s time to dispose of this waste properly. Pads that have soaked up chemicals cannot just be thrown in the trash, as some of them may pose problems when mixed with other substances. Your facility may require that hazardous waste is placed in specific bags or containers. It’s also possible to use a spill kit’s bucket to contain the chemicals. In either case, put a hazardous waste label on the container and dispose of it through the appropriate channels established at your company.

Once the waste has been disposed of, the spill area should be cleaned using soap and water to remove any chemical residues. Doing so will help make it safe for other employees to return to work.

5. Report

Once the spill is cleaned up, and everything is back under control, it’s time to document what happened and report the spill to any necessary agencies. Your company may have specific procedures for recording the event internally. Which external agencies you need to notify will depend on the type of spill.
