Omaha Steaks "F" Street Plant - Executive Summary
This is to inform all interested persons including employees, that Omaha Steaks is complying with OSHA's Process Safety management Standard, Title 29, CFR, Part 68, to deal with the risks involved with the storage, handling and utilization of ammonia used in its refrigeration system. |
In this way, we promote overall plant, worker, and public safety. These programs enable our facility to prevent the occurrence and minimize the consequences of significant releases of ammonia as well as fires, explosions, and other types of catastrophic accidents. Overall, these programs prevent accidental fatalities, injuries and illnesses, and avoid physical property damage.
Our safety programs are applied to any activity involving hazardous chemicals and specifically ammonia, including any use, storage, manufacturing, handling, or the on-site movement of such chemicals, or combination of these activities. Any group of vessels, which are inter-connected, and separate vessels, which are located such
that ammonia could be involved in a potential release, shall be considered a single process.
Our safety programs prevent accidents because they focus on the rules, procedures, and practices, which govern individual processes, activities, or pieces of equipment. These rules are detailed and improved as necessary. They are also communicated to, and accepted by all employees at the facility.
