The advantage of this is that it keeps you incredibly sharp”, says Christian, who with his men was intensively supervised by internal SHE specialists who pay close attention to the Safety, Health, Environment (SHE) regulations. Including all the safety standards for every supplier and sub-suppliers of Aspen. “During the welding activities that took place in the tank farm for several weeks, we placed an LEL (Lower Explosion Level) meter with 16 gas detectors situated at the highest point, this to provide a continuous measurement.
