IGD 1002: ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS

1.0

PURPOSE

 

 

 

This IGD identifies the “Environmental Aspects” and “Safety and Occupational Health Risks” of each Depot. These aspects and risks include those activities, commodities and services that the Depot can control or over which it can be expected to have an influence. This IGD applies to our personnel (Headquarters and Depot), and those working on our behalf that are responsible for defining, assessing and updating environmental aspects and safety and occupational health risks for the respective Depots.

2.1

Environmental Aspects, and Safety and Occupational Health Risk Elements

 

 

 

 

Activities, products and services are identified and reviewed annually to establish the environmental aspects for the Depot. When considering our environmental aspects and safety and health risk elements, our evaluation includes, but is not limited to, the following:

 

 

 

 

a)

Air Emissions (i.e., fugitive dust).

 

 

 

 

b)

Water (i.e., discharges and weed control).

 

 

 

 

c)

Hazardous Waste (i.e., generation, storage, treatment and disposal, and vendor qualification/activity).

 

 

 

 

d)

Solid Waste (i.e., generation, storage, treatment and disposal, and vendor qualification/activity).

 

 

 

 

e)

Spills Management (i.e., underground and aboveground tanks including piping, and other equipment).

 

 

 

 

f)

Nuisances (i.e., odors and noises).

 

 

 

 

g)

Operations (i.e., equipment operation, storage).

 

 

 

 

h)

Resources Utilization (i.e., consumables, depot electrical service, and fuel).

 

 

 

 

i)

Emergency Personnel

 

 

 

 

j)

Energy

Consideration is given to normal and abnormal operations and to potential emergency situations.

Quantitative Process for Assigning Significance to Environmental Aspects and Safety and Occupational Health Risk Elements:

     

 

At least annually or as indicated by IGD 1019 Management of Change an ESOH Risk Analysis is conducted. For the initial ESOH Risk Analysis, the Depot ESOH  Representative or his/her designee uses Tables1A: Process Environmental Aspect Identification Form and 1B: Process Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment Form to document the activities at DLA Strategic Materials which may result in an ESOH impact. The ESOH Representative or his/her designee then develops an Environmental Safety and Occupational Health Analysis using the Table 1C: ESOH Risk Analysis Worksheet. Once completed, the ESOH Risk Analysis Worksheet is electronically transmitted to the ESOH Representative for review. If applicable, the findings are incorporated into the ESOH Management System. For the subsequent ESOH Risk Analysis, the Depot ESOH Representative or his /her designee will review and update Tables 1A and 1B to document the current ESOH activities at DLA Strategic Materials. The ESOH Representative or his/her designee will then also update the Environmental Safety and Occupational Health Analysis by using Table 1C. Once completed, the ESOH Risk Analysis Worksheet is electronically transmitted to the ESOH Representative for review. If applicable, the findings are incorporated into the ESOH management system.

Regulation

If the task is regulated by any of the following organizations, or is mission or safety and health dependent, then multiply by a factor of 2:

Federal, State, Local, Commercial Host, Military Host, or DLA Agency Host

Risk Priority Number

Multiply Severity x Occurrence x Detection x Regulatory. This is the Risk Priority Number (RPN):

RPN = [Severity] x [Occurrence] x [Detection] x [Regulatory]

2.3

Program Methodology

 

 

 

 

Each respective aspect or risk consideration is evaluated on its environmental, safety and health impact, level of control, and applicable legislative and regulatory requirements. Each aspect consideration is further evaluated on its environmental and business significance based upon the following:

 

 

 

 

a)

Business management practices and procedures.

 

 

 

 

b)

Environmental, safety and occupational health management practices and procedures.

 

 

 

 

c)

Incorporation of "lessons learned" from investigations, reviews of previous incidents, audits, and/or other forms of feedback resulting from performance monitoring and measurement.

 

 

 

 

d)

Identification of environmental significance and high safety and occupational health risks.

 

 

 

 

e)

Other requirements to which the organization subscribes, if applicable.

 

 

 

 

Each depot manager determines the significant aspects for their depot. The depot manager will specifically look at all aspects with RPNs greater than 100 when determining significance. At a minimum, the depot manager will choose three significant aspects and document them in Table 2 .

 

 

 

 

 

2.4

Program Integration

 

 

 

 

The results of the environmental aspect and safety and occupational health analysis will be communicated directly to applicable Headquarters and Depot personnel and those working on our behalf through daily morning meetings, Safety Meetings, Depot Meetings, and Team Meetings where applicable.

 

 

 

 

The Chief, Environmental Management Division (Management's ESOH Representative) will insure that "Environmental Aspects" and “Safety and Occupational Health Risks” reflect the current operating conditions of the installation and will review and update this documentation annually or as deemed necessary (i.e., significant personnel changes, new commodities, or final removal of commodities.) These environmental aspects and risks are considered for establishing performance objectives and targets (Objectives and Targets).

A letter will be submitted by the Administrator and Front Office to hosts and tenant activities (as appropriate) describing significant aspects and mission performance issues.
