Chemical exposure in connection with oil spills

OLF´s follow up of the Macondo accident has led to several recommendations in the event of exposure hazards in connection with accidental spills of oil.

Incidents that lead to discharge of hydrocarbons can result in exposure of the involved personnel to various chemicals. Exposure can occur both in connection with the actual accident, mitigation operations and in connection with clean-up. Several of these chemicals can lead to unfortunate health effects.

Cooperation was established between the DwH Project and the Chemical Project in OLF. The recommendations from the DwH Project are based on findings and results from investigation reports, in addition to experience and expertise from the Chemical Project. A working meeting was organised in 2011 to draw up industry recommendations in the event of exposure hazards in connection with accidental spills of hydrocarbons, as regards both mitigation and clean-up work.
