Our safety performance is excellent, delivered through strong leadership, accountability, team dedication and expertise. Our high skilled and capable team include both employees and contracting Business Partners.
Our Health, Safety, Environment and Security (HSSE) and Major Accident Prevention Policy clearly states how we prevent, control, and mitigate potential hazards and impacts associated with the activities that we perform, this is underpinned with a robust and effective HSSE management system.
We work closely with and are regulated by the Health and Safety Executive, under the Control of Major Accident Hazard (COMAH) Regulations 2015, to meet the highest safety standards of an upper tier COMAH site.
We are a learning organisation devoted to continual improvement; this is a key objective for us. To meet this objective Dragon develops an annual HSSE improvement plan to drive and deliver performance improvements in all elements of the organisation.
We are required to provide our Public Information Zone (PIZ)* with details of what actions they should take in the unlikely event of an incident which could affect anyone outside of our site. Advice from the Emergency Services suggests that if the siren sounds – other than a test (details below*) – it is best to: GO INSIDE, STAY IN AND TUNE IN.
Go inside: Switch off all sources of ignition, including gas and electrical heating appliances. Block incoming droughts. Do not light matches, and put out naked flames. Do not smoke. Go into a room facing away from our site and close the curtains. Please avoid using your phone to contact Dragon – this will help us keep our lines free for emergency use.
Stay in: Wait inside until the all clear has been given by the Emergency Services, who may instruct us to use our Dragon LNG all clear siren, or advise you by another means.
Tune into: Radio Pembrokeshire (102.5FM) or BBC Radio Wales (93-96 and 104FM) to listen to instructions from the Emergency Services who will be working with local/national radio to broadcast key information.
*The boundaries of our Public Information Zone, are set by the competent authority:
North of our site. There is no natural boundary, but it does not go as far as Lower or Middle Scoveston
East of our site. Boundary extended slightly to include properties on the same side of the stream running down to Hazelbeach as the Dragon LNG site
South of our site. The boundary does not reach the opposite bank of the Haven (from our site)
West of our site. The boundary has been extended slightly and is on the same side of Castle Pill as the Dragon site.
In the extremely unlikely event of an incident that might have off site implications, our off site (COMAH) siren will sound. This siren is designed to be heard in our Public Information Zone, as described above. This siren has a distinctive sound, with the tone alternatively rising and lowering in pitch. Our all-clear siren has a single continuous tone. To hear a recording of our emergency instructions and the off site (COMAH) siren, please call freephone 0800 0468113. Calls to this number from any UK Landline will be free. Please check with your mobile network provider if calling from a mobile phone.
Our ‘Offsite Siren’, followed by our ‘All Clear Siren’ are tested on the first Thursday of each month at 12noon.
