||The regional emergency plan requirement: Application of the best practices to the Brazilian case
||Oct. 2010, Vol.48, No.8, p.991-999. Illus. 4 ref.
||Currently in Brazil, resources are not optimized in offshore emergency plans. It is up to individual companies to implement their own plans, without any coordination. Despite the existence of certain procedures, there are no national or regional frameworks to coordinate such emergency plans. The objective of this study was to define new requirements for a Brazilian regional emergency plan based on the best practices used in countries such as the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Japan and Australia. The risk analysis methodologies and emergency frameworks used in these countries were taken into account and a critical analysis was carried out in order to customize and apply their best practices to the Brazilian context. In addition, other issues were examined, such as the number of accidents and environmental impact in some areas, related to environmental sensitivity in order to define the environmental reliability of the whole system within a specific area.
