Also available as an optional accessory is the TSA Accepted PeliLock, which airport personnel, who all have special access keys, won’t need to cut for security inspections. Boasting 25, 826 cubic centimeters / 0.02 cubic meters of possible storage space, the iM2435 features a unique top loading design that gives immediate, easy access to its contents. Additionally, there are molded-in feet that give the case stability when it’s upright and full. Standard features include stainless steel, ball-bearing, polyurethane wheels; an extra-long, telescoping, metal handle for easy transport; and recessed rubberized top grip for easy stacking and maximum comfort. The case also features integrated padlock protectors for added defense against cutting and theft. Like all Pelican Storm Cases, the iM2435’s high-performance HPX™ polymer construction helps it protect sensitive equipment from

some of the harshest conditions on Earth. It also features extremely strong press and pull latches to ensure that the case stays secure in rough situations. Additional features include a lid equipped with a polymer o-ring for a dust and watertight seal, and an automatic pressure equalization Vortex™ valve, that stops moisture from entering the case and prevents vacuumlock so the case opens easily at any altitude.

He continued “Having worked with CEM before on projects such as Dubai International Airport, we knew the CEM AC2000 solution would be a perfect fit for the Port and with CEM’s dedicated Integrations team, Khalifa Ports high expectations could be met successfully”. CEM’s advanced hardware was used throughout the Port including over 700 S610e and S610f fingerprint readers, S3020 portable card readers and over 300 DIU (Door Interface Unit) 230s utilising PoE+ (Power over Ethernet) technology. The multi-technology CEM S610e IP card readers installed at Khalifa Port are IP 66 rated to protect against dust and water. The S610e reader displays meaningful user messages such as ‘Wrong Time-Zone & ‘Card Expiring’ and features a keypad for additional PIN code security. The S610e reader also offers the highest level of reliability as it features an internal database for offline card validation. The reader’s database holds up to 200,000 card holder records internally and up to 8,000 records offline. This means that should communication be temporarily lost at the Khalifa Port, staff can still validate cards throughout the Port at all times. CEM S610f fingerprint readers will also be installed on critical doors/areas throughout Khalifa Port. The S610f reader has all the features of the S610 reader but the added benefit of biometric security. For high security areas users will be prompted for three identity checks (card, PIN and biometric verification) using one device. Being such a large and expansive site, Khalifa Port required mobile security. The CEM S3020 portable reader is ideal for roaming security. The lightweight, handheld mobile reader can be used at remote Port sites or

temporary entrances which have no power during the construction phases. Khalifa Port also chose CEM’s industry leading Power over Ethernet door interface units for seamless installation and to ensure cabling was kept to a minimum. The DIU 230 door interface unit utilises CEM Power over Ethernet Plus technology to power readers and heavy duty maglocks on two doors, using a single Ethernet network cable. This created sizable cost savings on the project as it eliminated the need to fit mains power supplies/ fused spurs above each door. Khalifa Port also use the AC2000 security management system to its maximum efficiency taking advantage of software applications such as AC2000 AED (Alarm Event Display), VIPPS ID Badging and Visitor Management.

Hikvision introduces 720TVL cameras for the highest level of image quality in analog world

H

ikvision, the global leader of video surveillance products and solutions, is proud to announce the release of its 720 TVL analog camera series. Notably, this series features a new technical concept called PICADIS: a “Perfect Imagery Capturing - Advanced Digital Image System”. This new analog camera series is designed to empower surveillance users to achieve the highest level of image quality in the analog world. Keen Yao, International Marketing Director of Hikvision said: “Hikvision is committed to staying at the forefront of the video surveillance industry, and the devotion of our company to R&D is proof of this ideal. The introduction of our 720TVL camera series will drive picture imaging to new heights in analog surveillance solution and keep in step with this goal of innovation.” The new 720TVL PICADIS analog camera series consists of the DS-2CE55C2P Dome Camera, DS2CE55C2P-IR Dome Camera, DS-2CE55C2P-IRP Dome Camera, and the DS-2CE15C2P-IR Bullet Camera. All of them feature 720TVL ultra-high resolution by employing a 1.3MP (1280x960) image sensor; the effective pixels are more than twice than that of a 960H (976x582) camera. This helps to better capture detailed images for identification purpose. Images are further optimized with HDR (High Dynamic Range) that helps to capture critical detail, including highlights, shadows, and mixed lighting – all the while without compromising on image quality or color accuracy. An Adaptive Local Tone Mapping (ALTM) algorithm is also incorporated to maximize imaging performance. Excellent low-light performance is another highlight of this 720TVL PICADIS camera. The shutter speed of all four cameras can reach up-to 40ms – even in poor lighting environments. This is twice that of conventional analog cameras. All of these improvements ultimately result in significantly improved camera light sensitivity. Coupled with Digital Noise Reduction, users are able to better discern shapes, sizes, and of course movement in near-complete darkness. The DS-2CE55C2P(N)-IR Dome Camera, DS-2CE55C2P(N)-IRP Dome Camera and the DS-2CE15C2P(N)-IR Bullet Camera even support smart

DS-2CE16C2P-IT3 IR to address overexposure issues, while still providing clearer and sharper images. In addition, the 720TVL PICADIS analog camera series operates effectively in a wide range of weather conditions, including a temperature range of -40°C to 60°C (-40°F to 140°F), as well as a humidity level of up-to 90%. The models DS-2CE55C2P-IR and DS-2CE15C2PIR even support an IP66-rated housing for outdoor surveillance. “These cameras’ features bring unsurpassed image quality. The Hikvision 720TVL analog series can meet the security needs of nearly every business and organization, including hotels, office buildings, industrial parks, and other like-minded applicable scenarios,” Keen noted. Additionally, Hikvision also provides the DS2CE16C2P-IT3/IT5 720TVL IR Bullet Camera and the DS2CE56C2P-IT3 720TVL IR Dome Camera. Both feature Hikvision’s excellent EXIR infrared array technology and provide best-in-breed illuminators and enhanced low-light performance for any zero-dark environment, indoors or out. www.ind-safety.com

oftware House, part of the Tyco Security Products business unit of Tyco (NYSE: TYC), is announcing a host of enhancements to its C∙CURE 9000 security and event management platform that simplify the management of personnel access. With features such as credential deactivation, custom clearances, and activating events based on activity, C∙CURE 9000 v2.20 gives you the ultimate flexibility in solving common personnel access issues. Credential deactivation enables you to automatically address unused personnel cards. With C∙CURE 9000 v2.20, your system can automatically disable personnel cards that have not been used in a specified amount of time, allowing you to better manage employees, contractors, and visitors. C∙CURE 9000 v2.20, allows you to create custom clearances that give individualized access to specific doors, elevators, or groups of both. You can set up a custom clearance for a specific person versus changing a generic clearance for a whole group of people. For example, you can set up a custom clearance for a contractor who is working on a project for a week; once the week is over, his credentials are automatically disabled without affecting the clearances of any other cardholder. “The new capabilities in C∙CURE 9000 provide more intuitive

ways to better manage personnel access,” said Steven Lewis, Senior Product Manager, for Software House. “These features in C∙CURE 9000 represent how we continue to advance the way you provide individualized access to your employees, contractors, and visitors, creating a safer environment for your business.” C∙CURE 9000 v2.20 allows you to automatically activate an event associated with a specific person, and specific doors. For example, when the president of the company arrives each morning the system can automatically turn on the lights, HVAC, and send a report directly to his/her computer. C∙CURE 9000 is available through Software House’s worldwide distribution channels.

Honeywell survey finds nearly 40 % of visitors to Hospitals, Airports, Office Buildings lack awareness of fire exits & What to do in event of fire

N

• Nearly 50 Percent of Airport, Shopping Mall, Hotel, Hospital and Office Workers Have Not Participated in Fire Safety Training for Their Facilities • More Than One in Four Visitors Ignore Fire Alarms, Don’t Know Their Sound or Simply Follow Others When an Alarm is Heard • Study Indicates Extremely Low Awareness of Procedures and Alarm Systems in These Facilities

early 40 percent of visitors to hospitals, airports, shopping malls and office buildings in major cities in India are unaware of the location of fire exits, and more than one in four do not follow appropriate fire evacuation procedures in the event of an alarm, according to a recent study by Honeywell (NYSE: HON), conducted by Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB). The study, conducted to raise awareness of the important role that the public plays in fire safety, also showed an overall lack of training or awareness for both workers and visitors in these facilities, with nearly 50 percent of workers saying they have not participated in a fire drill or other safety training exercise. Nearly 80 percent of visitors responded that they were not aware of fire alarm procedures indicating a lack of visible signage and instructions. Fire safety awareness is a crucial factor in avoiding fire-related incidents, and businesses, workers and visitors to their facilities need to equip themselves with basic safety knowledge, as well as ensure that the systems protecting them are appropriately designed for the risk they are protecting against. According to the National Crime Records Bureau, a total of 24,232 deaths in 2010-11, or 6.3% of total deaths in India, were due to fire accidents. “Most injury and fatalities from fire incidents happen due to lack of awareness about what to do in case of a fire alarm as well as lack of preparedness by facility owners,” said Mr. D.K. Shami, Dy. Fire Adviser, Directorate

General of Civil Defence, Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India. “Per the Fire Act, we have a legal and moral obligation to employees to secure them against the risk of fire.” In hospitals, nearly 40 percent of employees are unaware of fire evacuation procedures. This represents a serious life-ordeath situation because hospital employees are accountable for evacuation of patients and visitors. The situation isn’t much better in commercial buildings. Nearly half of employees working in shopping malls and more than half of office workers were not aware of fire evacuation procedures, signaling a simple opportunity to improve on worker and visitor safety at these facilities. And the situation gets much worse in homes: 85 percent of the respondents said their home residence lacked a fire alarm system or detection device. “To avoid catastrophic situations due to a fire employers and building owners need to have appropriate fire alarm systems, and also conduct regular training for employees and have appropriate signage in place for visitors,” said Harish Vellat, Regional Director, Honeywell Life Safety (HLS), India. “While almost all of those surveyed said they had fire alarm systems in place, there is a deep lack of awareness of the steps that should be taken if a fire or other critical issue occurs.” As a leading provider of fire systems, www.ind-safety.com

Honeywell Life Safety, in consultation with Mr. D K Shami, offers the following tips to help facility owners and individuals know what to do in the event of an emergency:

For facility owners :

• Create an emergency preparedness plan for your facility and ensure compliance with all fire protection and fire safety requirements; • Regularly test fire emergency systems; • Conduct regular training and mock exercises of evacuation with your employees; • Ensure your emergency exit signage is posted, clearly visible and prepare for visually or hearing impaired individuals; • In addition to a basic fire alarm, consider integrating your building’s fire, lighting, security, HVAC building controls into a building automation and management system to provide additional levels of safety and security.

For individuals :

• Always identify emergency exit signs in your workplace and other locations you visit; • Always follow evacuation procedures when you hear a fire alarm; • Have a family evacuation plan at home, and teach your kids to follow fire alarm drills and evacuation procedures at home and school; • Ask your kids’ school authorities to ensure fire safety implementation with appropriate evacuation plan, regular fire safety drills, and installation and maintenance of fire safety equipment.

The growing aspirations of the expanding Indian middle class also mean that people expect fire safety to be available to them as a basic amenity. More than 35 tier 2-4 cities are driving the adoption of fire safety products and improving their fire safety standards. This will spark a trend as India expands its growth across its top 45 cities and towns. The survey was conducted in May of 2013 of approximately 1,100 people in eight Indian cities, including Dehli, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Kochi, Pune, Bhubaneswar and Indore. Survey respondents included employees and visitors of airports, shopping malls, hotels and

corporate office buildings and approximately half were socio economic classification (SEC) A1 and the other half SEC A2. The research was commissioned by Honeywell Life Safety, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of commercial fire alarms, detection and evacuation systems, as part of a drive to assess and raise public awareness of fire safety. Some of Honeywell’s fire systems products, software and solutions, including Notifier, Morley, Esser, System Sensor and FAAST are used by customers across India, including Delhi Airport Terminal 3, the Kolkata and Mumbai airports, the Delhi and Bangalore metros, Infosys campuses, ITC hotels, Indian Oil Corporation Limited and the Reliance Jamnagar refinery, among others.

ZICOM’S inTouch the new ‘Push Video Alarm System’ for Home/Shop security Catch a thief before he does the job--there and then!

I

ndia’s leading electronic security provider Zicom has launched inTouch, a Push Technology camera which is a breakthrough innovation in Video and Intrusion Alarm System (VAS). Targeted for the safety of working couples with kids, senior citizens at home and for monitoring remotely, inTouch also finds its application in retail stores as a business intelligence tool coupled with safety and security features. Zicom’s inTouch, the new Push Video Alarm System is a step beyond the traditional CCTVs as it pushes a live video feed into a portable mobile whenever an event occurs. Simply put, a client receives a push notification. The Push Video Technology is the result of developing a network camera that offers a vastly improved, a much clearer video quality, broader view angles, and taking forward existing functions, thus giving physical security a much needed dimension. That means whenever an incident takes place, users get instant accurate notification of an event helping them reduce the damage, if any, and salvage a situation. Push Video IP cameras are vastly different from the traditional CCTVs as they apply push technology into video surveillance systems making it possible to send out instant notifications and provide real-time playback. Which means following an incident, e.g., a break-in into your

34 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

house or store, you will get an instant play of that through Push Video on your mobile device within 5 seconds. By viewing playback video, you can then decide as to what prompt action has to be taken. Zicom’s new Push Video Alarm system has a built-in PIR sensor for human detection which is a more reliable form of motion detection rather than using the motion detected in the camera picture, which can cause false alarms. Prealarm recording allows you to see the entire course of an event rather than searching for footage in a vast storage of data. Push Video lets you move freely and do your normal, daily activities instead constantly worrying about the security of your near and dear ones, your home and your stores. Now it’s up to you to take a call as to which events need to be covered by the system! Push Video is the solution of today.

Oman auto dealership gets a robust Hikvision solution for their security needs

L

ocated in the heart of Muscat, the capital of oil-rich Oman, reside the showrooms of Suhail Bahwan Automobiles. Offering car manufactures such as BMW, Infinity, and Nissan, Suhail Bahwan Automobiles is the biggest automobile dealer in Oman. And appropriately, it also boasts some of the largest showrooms for these models. With such impressive, and lucrative, facilities, it is no surprise Suhail Bahwan Automobiles placed a great deal of emphasis on securing the safety of not only its cars, but the many employees and customers that surround them.

A Hikvision Platform

Anoop Nair, sales manager at Technosolutions, the integrator on this car showroom project, designed a robust solution featuring 8 separate Hikvision products and featuring no less than 100 individual Hikvision cameras. When asked why so many Hikvision products, Mr. Nair responded, “with the quality and versatility that Hikvision products offer, and the competitive price they are set at; they are simply the best choice on the market for a solution of this nature.” For this solution, the client’s goal was to monitor all showroom locations deemed critical. Locations, such as entrances, exits, financial transaction counters, customer service counters, and a variety of other employee work areas were to

42 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

be observed with a high-resolution CCTV system. Satisfying this goal would lead Mr. Nair to employ 6 separate Hikvision camera models, as well as Hikvision’s video management software to manage the overall solution. This software provided an optimal platform based on both practical and performance-based aspects. “With this many Hikvision products, we really wanted a Hikvision platform to tie it all into. Hikvision software has grown by leaps and bounds, and was a big plus for this project.” To further simplify and gain added efficiency, Hikvision’s DS1000KI Network Keyboard was chosen to operate this CCTV solution. The DS-1000KI’s joystick makes PTZ control of camera functions and management of up-to 99 networked DVR units a simple effort.

6 Camera Models

While Hikvision software and keyboards allowed the means to control this solution, a great deal of effort was placed into selecting cameras. Since a location such as an automobile dealership presents a wide variety of optical challenges, Mr. Nair utilized a wide variety of Hikvision model types to meet this challenge. For internal areas like reception and financial transaction counters, Mr. Nair chose the DS2CD753F-EI 2.0 Megapixel Vandal Proof Network Dome Camera. He www.ind-safety.com


BUSINESS NEWS

noted that Oman’s automobile showrooms have experienced instances of camera vandalism in these areas. Obviously, in sensitive locations where money is involved, the client preferred vandal proofing, and Mr. Nair was happy to oblige. Many of these showrooms had preexisting hardware and logistical infrastructure. An example of this was PoE enabled network switches. Mr. Nair utilized the DS-2CD753F-EI’s PoE, thereby limiting cables to a maximum of 50 meters from all DS-2CD753F-EI units. Obviously, this benefited the aesthetic element, but more importantly, it eliminated expensive fiber optical cabling to a central location – thus, greatly saving on installation costs. Monitoring the employee hallways is the DS-2CD793PF-EI 4CIF Network Dome Camera. Since these showrooms are closed at night, lighting in the back areas – including hallways – is turned off. The DS-2CD793PFEI’s super low light capability and a day/ night auto switch served to overcome this obstacle. At the main entrance, the DS2CD7253F-EIZ 2 MP IP66 Day & Night Waterproof Vandal Proof Network Dome Camera provides coverage. Owing to the nature of the location, a less-obtrusive dome was chosen over a more visible boxtype camera. An IP66 rating protects this camera from the highly-oscillating Oman weather conditions; while an 30 meter IR range allows the ability to not only view the entrance, but the parking area as well. In this case, a customer can literally be seen from the point of entering the parking lot – and well before they arrive at the front door. Hikvision’s DS-2CD8253F-EI 2 MP IP66 Network IR Bullet Camera provides coverage for a variety of areas, such as internal access control locations, outdoor parking lots, and vehicle entry/exit areas that do not possess access control. Utilizing a 30 meter IR range, the DS-2CD8253F-EI is positioned in such a way as to actually see license plate numbers. Additionally, preset motion searches allow security the ability to zoom onto objects in total darkness. Rounding out this solution is an

44 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

internal and external aspect. The DS-2DF1534 Indoor Network PTZ High Speed Dome Camera, placed on the interior of the 4-meter high showroom ceilings, exploits an up-to 23x optical zoom to “provide coverage of each and every nook of showroom and see people and objects that normal bullet / dome cameras cannot,” explained Mr. Nair. While outside, placed on top of the buildings, is the DS-2DF1-718 Outdoor Network IR PTZ Speed Dome Camera. Similarly, a 36x optical zoom provides the ability to zoom onto any object or person at a large distance; and an IR range of 80 meters allows it to do so in total darkness. In the end, integrator ingenuity and Hikvision technical prowess provided a successful recipe towards Suhail Bahwan Automobiles’ goal of providing surveillance over all critical aspects of their showroom environment.

Presidential Debate monitored with Milestone IP video Demanding but fast installation used HD, thermal, infrared, mobile and wireless technology

M

ilestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software (VMS), delivered the core of the security solution for the Presidential Debate of 2012 held at Hofstra University’s 600-acre campus on Long Island, NY. Implemented by systems integrator EIA Inc., the complex installation included mobile access over wireless network connections for both ground and air surveillance with a mix of high-tech cameras. The Secret Service, Nassau County Police Department and Hofstra University security personnel had less than one month to complete a rapid deployment throughout the campus and surrounding areas of Hofstra University for the second of three live presidential debates in the 2012 election. Only weeks before the event, hardware and network issues challenged the installation - a system design and correction was needed to ensure that President Barack Obama, Governor Mitt Romney and all attendees were protected. The Nassau County Police Department undertook the month-long operation deploying cameras to cover all angles of the presidential debate stage, the roads leading to Hofstra, the campus itself and the crowds outside the event. With Milestone XProtectŽ Corporate VMS, multiple mobile viewing stations were connected to 46 camera feeds before, during and after the Presidential Debate. This gave authorized security and law enforcement personnel clear and detailed views. With Milestone XProtect Corporate VMS, the incident commander was able to monitor campus roadways, buildings, faces in the crowd and the presidential candidates themselves, from strategically placed remote control centers and onsite. The Milestone solution connected the cameras through Wi-Fi over one network, so each command center and mobile officer was able to view any or all cameras as needed.

the comprehensive surveillance network. The cameras were networked through Milestone XProtect Corporate video software which provided the surveillance team with visibility to vantage points of the debate and surrounding areas,” says Glenn Taylor, Senior VP Sales at EIA Inc. As a certified Platinum Partner for Milestone Systems, EIA delivered core competency in networks and security integration for a seamless and easily accessible security feed during the presidential debate. EIA helped connect the entire system through a combination of wireless systems and the existing fiber networks throughout the university with broadband services from Verizon. To build the elaborate security network, the 46 cameras of the event’s temporary security system were fed through the already installed parent IT network points. Through a Firetide wireless mesh system and failover network, all of the buildings and associated cameras were available to the police through secure firewall access. The entire operation was headquartered in a security operations center, with multiple

mobile command centers strategically placed outside the Nassau Coliseum and in a fallback zone off campus. The police utilized the Milestone Mobile client with Video Push from their smartphones. Plain-clothed officers monitored the crowds from within using the smartphone cameras to give the command centers a live eye view of the crowd. Officers in the command center were also able to see additional camera views using the Milestone XProtect® Smart Client, following activities from different camera sources at the same time.

The deployed system included 29 Sony SNC-ER550 Full HD Rapid Dome cameras with 1080p HD, 19 Sony SNC-CH280 Network HD 1080p bullet cameras with infrared illuminators, an Arecont Vision AV20185DN 20-megapixel Panoramic IP camera and a Direct Insight node camera. There was no limit on camera locations: they were installed on bridges, telephone poles, light poles, along the Hempstead Turnpike - everywhere. Even a helicopter flying over the event was equipped with a high definition camera to provide another view. “There were so many things going on – the helicopter in the sky recording super HD broadcast-

quality video then recording it in Milestone using XProtect® Screen Recorder, which presented the live video in six, seven or eight viewing stations together with the rest of the surveillance cameras. We were able to serve it to anyone who was involved,” explains Glenn Taylor. “When I look at what we went through from a technical point of view and to have the ability to get everything up and running so fast without a hitch, Milestone performed as promised, doing exactly what it was supposed to do. It was, as always, very impressive.” During the event, a few minor incidents did not pose a direct physical threat to the President and governor, but resulted in actionable arrests. One protest group was streaming live feed to its website from campus. That group was linked to a watch list for the debate and the police monitored the live feed in the command center. Using Milestone XProtect, they could view multiple angles and find what they needed. “We work with a large number of applications and Milestone has the only VMS that allows us to seamlessly integrate them into our deployments without error. Milestone is always the strongest choice when it comes to our projects. We never have to worry about making changes,” states Taylor.

It was important to offer a wide menu of services to enhance the way we do business.” “We are pleased to deliver a comprehensive and cutting-edge solution that meets Performance Buildings’ stringent requirements while addressing the needs of their customers,” said Volker Kunz, director of sales, Europe with HID Global. “In addition, HID Global’s multiCLASS SE readers, part of our award-winning iCLASS SE® platform, provides tenants flexibility in using

a range of new and existing access card technologies, such as legacy proximity cards or smart cards and NFC smartphones to access the office building and rooms.” HID Global’s IP-based card solution reduced Performance Buildings’ initial investment through the EdgeReader reader/controller’s use of Power over Ethernet (PoE) that eliminates the need for additional cabling, separate power supplies and multi-door controllers. The company’s open-architecturebased OPIN® application program interface (API) was highly costeffective and required relatively little effort to create a robust integrated solution with the EdgeReader readers/controllers. Performance Buildings reports that it has seen a return on investment (ROI) within six months of installation and improved efficiencies thereafter. The company anticipates broadening its use of HID Global networked access control solutions as it continues to expand. For more information, contact: HID Global www.hidglobal.com www.ind-safety.com

Team of Aditya Infotech a serious concern for SMEs, shops as well as residential complexes, apart from the large companies. The government, in general, has been observed to be the biggest segment in terms of volume demand. PSUs are also a vertical with significant demand. In the last few years, technological advancement in video surveillance has helped in shaping the industry. Consistent with the ongoing demand from heightened security needs, the video security market continues to experience a technology transition from relatively passive analogue CCTV video systems to more sophisticated network-based IP video solutions that include integrated analytics. For video surveillance with an emphasis on detail, megapixels cameras provide much higher resolution and clearer image detail than any traditional security cameras. High Definition CCTV will be a strong trend as its perfect and best-suited solution for wide area surveillance. Wireless surveillance technology will surely interest end-user industry as it reduces the cost of infrastructure when compared with the traditional trenching and laying of cables. Wireless technology can also be used in temporary video surveillance installations to provide a degree of flexibility that a wired solution just cannot offer. In these days of austerity, moving cameras when and where you need them is a more attractive option than buying new cameras. www.ind-safety.com

orts and waterside facilities are, from a security point of view, the Achilles’ heel of national security. Port facilities, bridges, weirs, tunnels, cargo ships, ferries and cruise liners are potential targets. The entrance to a port is the soft underbelly of military and civilian port defences. These areas are not well protected against intrusion by terrorist or enemy divers. Past events, dating back to World War II confirm the subsurface weakness of ports, when navy frogmen first began to use them as points of attack. Attacks may take the form of armed combat divers or the use of explosives against target vessels or facilities.

The prospect of enemy divers entering ports or coastal waters undetected to attack naval and civilian ships or piers is a real threat, not only for navies and military forces but also in terms of the safety and security of civilian global trade and shipping. Underwater access presents an easier way to enter ports and attack ships anchored at the dockside. Drug smuggling and the rise of terrorist threats have increased the need underwater monitoring of the seas in the vicinity of Ports. Underwater Security addresses the protection of land facilities and valuable assets that are vulnerable to attack from

the waterside. Underwater Security also includes the examination of ships for contraband containers that may be fixed to the hull. The two technologies available for underwater surveillance are video cameras and sonar. However, in most harbours, underwater vision is limited due to the turbidity of the waters. Coastal waterways are naturally turbid because of strong tidal currents. ‘Sonar’ technology is the preferred choice as it is not affected by water clarity or murkiness. Sonar can be used to scan areas to ensure they are clear of foreign objects such as mines, Improvised Explosive Device (IEDs), or contraband. Multi-beam sonar can be used to detect the presence of divers, whether in a secure area within a defined perimeter or an underwater area under surveillance. Sonar altimeters can be used to create an “acoustic fence”, which, when breached, could trigger an alert for further investigation.

Sonar

An acronym for SOund Navigation And Ranging is a technique that uses sound propagation to detect objects, such as vessels, on or under the surface of the water. There are two main types of sonar systems active and passive. In active sonar, a pulse of sound is sent out and the operator waits for echoes. When a sound signal is sent into the water, part of it will be reflected back when it hits an object. The distance to the object can then be determined by measuring the time between when the signal was sent and when the echo is received. In passive sonar, the operator listens to sounds emitted by the object one is trying to locate. Passive sonar uses the sounds emitted by objects such

98 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

as ships, submarines and creatures such as marine mammals and fish to determine their location.

The threat

• Un-authorised divers (frogmen) • Explosives of contraband attached to the Hull • Explosives attached to the berth

Solution

Typical underwater detection systems consist of a real time sonar that scans the underwater environment in zero visibility waters. The system can be mounted on a small boat to scan harbour walls, piers, bridges for an underwater threat. The system can also be used to complement long range diver detection systems. These systems have built-in intelligence, to distinguish humans from marine animals, based on their different shapes and typical underwater movements. The performance of these systems is not impeded by darkness or fog or low underwater visibility.

Detection of un-authorised divers.

This could be achieved by having a crew of combat divers in a highspeed craft patrolling the undersea area on a 24x7 basis. However this is an expensive and time-consuming task. Sonar is used to detect divers, rapidly and effectively. Underwater detection systems generally operate up to a range of 800 meters. At ranges less than 200 metres, higher

frequency sonar can be employed. High-frequency, multi-beam sonar technology is the most effective approach for protecting high-value targets from underwater threats. For restricted, high-reverberation environments where multibeams cannot operate effectively, e.g., canals, narrow single-beam scanning sonar is deployed. Single-beam operates much like radar sweeping an area, with a narrow, high intensity beam that provides high-resolution images. Multi-beam sonar, on the other hand, “fires” a number of beams simultaneously to cover a broader field of view. Some sonar technologies have the ability to adjust the vertical field of view, enabling the beam to be expanded or narrowed in the vertical dimension and even “steered” up or down to address various monitoring challenges and range conditions.

Diver detection sonar Further single beam sonar can be used in conjunction with multi-beam technology, to provide coverage in confined areas and as an imaging tool for providing shortrange diver confirmation.

Inspection of the Hull

Ship hulls are scanned to determine if explosives or contraband (usually narcotics) have been attached. Magnetic mines may be attached anywhere to a steel hull below the www.ind-safety.com

Hull Scan of Barge waterline. Containers for smuggling narcotics are often secured to bow thrusters or rudder structures. High Resolution Scanning Sonar can examine a ship’s hull in a short period of time and are able to spot raised objects on the hull only a few centimetres high. When properly deployed, details as fine as weld seams are visible as shown in this scan. These systems can be mounted on remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to create 3D ship hull scans to detect small mine size objects. Scanning sonar is positioned most easily by using a ROV with sufficient power to hold against currents and to press firmly against the hull. This provides a steady platform for the high resolution scanning sonar and enables high quality scans that readily define features such as a small container attached to the hull of a ship.

Bow to stern vessel hull inspection. little or no risk. Software package are available that can stitch together multiple scans to provide a complete picture of the ship’s hull.

Inspection of the Berth.

High resolution scanning sonar is used to examine a ship’s berth in the greatest level of detail. It helps determine if a berth is clear of objects that could represent a threat to a visiting warship, cruise liner or other high value asset. Berth inspections can be conducted in real time and comparisons made to previous scans. Commercially available products enable a single person to easily provide a complete security inspection of a vessel pier and the surrounding underwater terrain. The sonar head can be oriented to provide horizontal coverage (for the seafloor near the pier) and may be vertically oriented to provide vertical coverage for inspection of pier walls.

Reduction of false alarms : One of the biggest challenges in diver detection has been to reduce the number of false alarms triggered by marine life. Most systems available have built-in algorithms that incorporate elements of artificial intelligence to logically select only those targets with the characteristics of underwater or surface swimmers. Advances in these technologies have led to better reliability and fewer false alarms. Shortage of qualified personnel:

Manufacturers are incorporating advances in technology to fill this gap. Environmental concerns : There is growing concern over the effect of sonar surveillance systems on marine life. Manufacturers are taking care to ensure that the effect is minimal. Training : Effective and efficient training of sonar operators is essential. Even the most sophisticated sonar system is only as good as the quality of its operators.

Trends

Reliability : Technology improvements in sonar systems over the past decade have focused on improvements in the reliability and consistency of detection. Greater effectiveness : Operating at lower frequencies than scanning sonar, but with higher energy, results in a multi-beam sonar with a longer reach, increasing its effectiveness in diver detection. Use of a small ROV’s that can be launched, at the push of a button, to investigate a threat. Underwater “loudhailers” to warn innocent divers who may have breached the security zone. Integration: In addition to the autodetection and tracking of targets, advancements in software make it possible to route alarms to other command and control systems. All tracking data on targets can thus be merged on a single display screen for fast action. This offers early warning against an impending attack. www.ind-safety.com

Building campus network - Education

M

Mr. Subhasish Gupta, Country Manager India & SAARC

odern education networks are complex, and serve a rapidly developing set of requirements, some of which challenge the technology and its security. Online applications, e-learning, and media-rich teaching methods provide immense benefits to secondary and tertiary education providers. Motivated students with access to advanced learning resources, remote schooling, and online opportunities are part of the next generation in education. Schools take ultimate responsibility for the security of their pupils and networks, and must provide an efficient, safe and effective computing environment which serves the entire school - pupils, teachers, administrators and all the other members of the school community. When it comes to implementing networks, education providers face a number of challenges. They must provide: • Individual access to appropriate resources for staff and students, while protecting confidential information and maintaining privacyidentity based networking. • Secure network access to students and staff anywhere on the campus at any time, including roaming wireless access - mobility while maintaining security. • Secure connection to online resources and the internet, protecting both the network and students from inappropriate material and malicious threats,

while minimizing administration overhead - security without inconvenience. • Support of new e-learning technologies such as streaming video seen in multiple locations simultaneously, video conferencing, distance learning, and remote network access. All provided within often constrained IT budgets -advanced valueadded services. • Finding a network that meets all your needs can seem like an impossible task.

With the current technology trends like network virtualisation, NAC, network in a box kind of approach can really help in achieving objective of building secure, available, manageable and resilient campus network.

Resilient and Available Network

Latest technology innovative features like virtual stack and Ethernet protection switching rings are capable enough to build highly resilient and available networks.

Virtual Chassis Stacking(VCStack)

INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW | JUNE

TECH UPDATE

VCStack provides excellent resiliency by allowing you to create a single “virtual chassis” from upto eight physical switches. If one stacked switch fails, traffic routes seamlessly to another, preventing network disruption. VCStack delivers a resilient core at a fraction of the cost of a full chassis-based system, and it allows you to manage the stack as a single node on the network, greatly simplifying your management.

Ethernet Protected SwitchedRings (EPSRing)

EPSR allows several switches to form a high-speed protected ring capable of recovery within as little as 50ms. This feature is perfect for high performance and high availability in distributed networks like schools and university campuses. SuperLoop Protection enables a link between two EPSR nodes to be in separate EPSR domains, improving redundancy and network fault resiliency.

Ease of Manageability

Manageability is everyone’s prime concern after deployment of network. The smooth operation of services will be possible if network is easily manageable. Maintenance and configuration of network

102 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

equipment is greatly simplified with an industry standard Command Line Interface (CLI) on switches. This keeps training requirements for IT staff at a minimum, and reduces both your network management complexity and deployment costs. A Web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) also ensures a user friendly way to monitor and configure your network. “Network in a Box” kind of approach provides the ease of manageability.

Network in a Box

Network in a Box simplifies administration by integrating several network services into switches: • Internal radius server checks the identity of users to keep the network safe and free from uninvited ‘guests’. The local RADIUS server within switch itself can authenticate 802.1x supplicants either via username and password, or by using X.509 certificates. The in-built radius server in switch not only ensures highly secure network but also reduces the cost of network solution by slashing the cost of external radius server • Storm control ensures a robust and resilient network by managing the amount of traffic allowed on the network, and dealing with any unexpected surges • Internal DHCP server automates the distribution of network addresses to every computer • A centralized timekeeper ensures your network is always working in full synchronicity • Loop protection guards against accidental wiring, mistakes centralizing network administration greatly reduce the need for full time IT experts, while increasing security and robustness. www.ind-safety.com

This piece of information intended for hospital executives, explains how hospitals can use CiscoÂŽ Video Surveillance solutions to lower costs and improve patient safety. Capturing video can mitigate expenses associated with patient sitters, drug diversion, other theft, and false accident or injury claims. Hospital personnel gain earlier awareness of incidents that can compromise patient safety by using video analytics software to send an alert based on loitering, boundary crossing, or queue length. And as part of emergency preparation, video surveillance provides situational awareness to help officials plan an effective response. CCTV cameras were identified as a tool, amongst other practices in maintaining staff safety. CCTV surveillance was not just limited to

104 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

hospital car parks, reception/waiting areas and access points onto wards; it also monitored staff, patients and visitors within wards. Inside wards, CCTV cameras have been located in patient accessed areas, such as lounge and dining areas, activity rooms, viewing rooms, education rooms, therapy rooms as well as patient bedrooms, toilets and seclusion rooms. CCTV cameras also have the advantage of covering a much wider area of surveillance (Marx, 2002) and on poorly designed hospital wards, where it is difficult to have continuous staff presence, CCTV cameras can be the perfect disciplinary apparatus, in that a single gaze can provide information on what patients are doing on the ward, as well as providing an opportunity to observe clinical staff and see what they are doing. The management of violence and the distrust created in the patients’ inability to discipline their behaviour is also extended to staff. The potential for CCTV to be used in this way manipulates the hierarchical social control at ward level, as both patients and nurses become subject to the panoptic practices of surveillance. The surveillance of nursing staff does suggest an added advantage for patients in safeguarding them from violent staff. However, this form of watching also has the potential for manipulating the relationship between patients and nursing staff more widely. Nursing staff, as well as some patients, are aware of the hierarchical power www.ind-safety.com

invested in the ward manager, who acts as the ‘supervisor’ keeping a watchful guard. Both patients and staff learn ‘self-discipline’ through not knowing when they are being watched and it is this uncertainty that allows the ward manager to maintain control. The use of CCTV monitoring has therefore the potential to influence and change nursing practices with patients, and these may not necessarily be to the advantage of patients. The use of CCTV surveillance with some patients, who are very acutely unwell and subject to a wide range of cognitive distortions, raises the question of the panoptic effects of CCTV in managing violent situations. For some of these patients, the presence of cameras in the ward environment is more likely to incite a violent response because the cameras heighten levels of paranoia that are associated with their delusions and mental health problem. Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)is a security system ,with cameras used to collect images which are transferred to a recording device while displaying live images on a monitor where it can be watched by an operator. It is a situational measure aimed at deterring potential offenders and detecting crime by those who choose to ignore the deterrent effect of CCTV ; enabling the police and other statutory agencies to respond to incidents effectively. The recorded images can then be used as evidence in court in the prosecution of offenders.

the US in the eighties. The European Union has since adopted CCTV is widely admired and accepted in the retail industry, due in part to its wide range of applications extending from situational crime prevention in retail shops to its use in reducing the fear of crime in members of the public It is believed to have a dominating influence over other security measures in retail shops in tackling shop thefts. Shoplifting has been in existence for as long as shopping itself, It is a wrongful acquisition of property belonging to another, defined as an act of stealing from a retailer during the opening hours of the store to the public by a person appearing to be a legitimate customer, As a result, many retailers have relied on crime prevention theories such as Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED), routine activity theory, rationalchoice theory and other security concepts aimed at crime reduction precipitating both human and technological approaches to shoplifting leading to the use of security guards, CCTV with the view to increasing the ‘risk’ to offenders. Despite the huge investment in security and security equipments, such as CCTV , retailers continue to experience losses due to shoplifting. Despite this scale of shoplifting, it is surprising to note that other countries such as US, Canada, Australia, mexico also blame shoplifting as a major source of loss after employee theft each blaming approximately 30 percent of their losses on theft by customers. CCTV works better in car parks; raising a question of the possibility that the effectiveness of CCTV in car parks could be attributed to CCTV as part of a package of interventions focused on a specific crime type. Situational application of CCTV requires that other

106 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

security measures compliment its use as a security provider reducing benefits of crime and crime opportunities, making crime difficult for offender by increasing the risk of getting caught. In addition, other situational factors like the territorial nature of the car parks and access control might have created a circle of ownership with in the car park, with the help of CCTV altogether inducing the perception of risk in the minds of offenders. The car park study is particularly interesting and relevant to this topic of CCTV impacton shoplifters due to its similarity with retail (commercial) settings; as both have marked boundaries and exhibit some sense of territoriality. However, Welsh and Farrington (2002, as cited in Department of Criminology, 2009/2010) analyzing the impact of CCTV on crimes advocated the need for further research that explains what it is about CCTV that impacts on crime. Welsh and Farrington’s view indicate that any study of CCTV impact on crime must take a subjective view and would require interviewing of offenders. It may be appropriate to take the view that anyone with access to goods on the shop floors is a potential offender, (Farrell; Pease, 2006:181). The work of Welsh and Farrington (2002, as cited in Department of Criminology,2009/2010) meta-analysis on the impact of CCTV initially involved 46 studies, but only considered 22 research papers, in which they found CCTV to have desirable effect on 11 of the studies; inconclusive in 1 of the studies; undesirable impact on crime in 5 of the studies and null effect in 5 out of the 22 studies btained. Gill and Spriggs, (2005) carried out a separate study on the impact of CCTV based on avariety of contexts; carparks, town centres, city centres, hospitals and residential areas using 13 CCTV projects with 14 separate systems. The aim was to measure crime data in Page 4 of 10 control and intervention areas before CCTV installations; then measure change in existing crime figures for a long duration following CCTV installation.The www.ind-safety.com


TECH UPDATE

method used in this study differs from Welsh and Farrington’s metaanalysis of existing findings of previous studies. Firstly, control and intervention areas were established and police recorded crime statistics in both areas obtained before and after CCTV installation. Secondly, public attitude surveys were carried out in residential and town centre areas. Thirdly, other security measures operating alongside CCTV and the extent to which they offer any explanation to effect on rime were identified. Next, technical specification and installation of CCTV were looked at; together with the assessment of CCTV control room and how it partners with external agencies. Finally, economic impact of each CCTV system was assessed. Gill and Spriggs, (2005:vi), found that six out of thirteen systems how decrease in crime in the intervention area; while only two of the systems show crime reduction in the control areas relative to the intervention or target areas. Conversely, crime was found to increase in seven areas and this was found to have nothing to do with CCTV, rather fluctuations in crime in line with seasonal and national patterns were to blame. While systems installed in car parks and hospitals were found to be encouraging, results from town centres and residential systems were found to be nconclusive. CCTV was found to have less impact on alcohol related offences compared to property or premeditated offences like theft of cars. Subsequently, violent offences were found to increase in all areas. Further more, camera coverage and density were found to have significant effect on crime while CCTV was found to yield positive www.ind-safety.com

results in locations with access control points. Three systems were found to show displacement of crime, with one of them showing displacement of burglary and one other showing displacement of car crime. Public attitude survey carried out in nine residential and three city centre areas, covering ‘camera awareness’ showed 61-97 percent awareness level in residential areas; whereas awareness level in city areas only increased with camera density. Fear of crime or victimisation decreased in intervention areas compared to control areas and this change Page 5 of 10 was found to be unaffected by whether or not it is a residential or city area. However, awareness of camera was found to increase the fear of victimisation in some of the persons surveyed. Overall, a feeling of safety was found to increase in all but one area following CCTV installation. In eight areas reported victimisation came down following CCTV installations compared to control areas. Again, victimisation was not found to be affected by type of area and worry about being avictim of crime reduced in line with reported victimisation. Gill and Spriggs, (2005: ii), suggested existence of direct proportionality between crime level in a given area and fear of victimisation, as one increases with increase in the other and vice versa. Consequently, Gill and Spriggs concluded that increase in victimisation could be attributed to crime levels in an area and not the number of cameras. Change in behaviour was not significant as out of the 15 percent that said they would visit areas they had previously avoided following CCTV installation only 2 percent actually went to places they had INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW | JUNE

TECH TRENDS

previously avoided after installation. It was also found that support for CCTV went down in areas amongst those who previously expressed delight in having camera in their area. Concern for civil liberties was also found to decrease in those who expressed such concern before installation. Overall, support for CCTV remained high at 70 percent of all sample areas except in one area. Further more, Gill and Spriggs found that perceived effectiveness fell following installation in all areas surveyed. The respondents did not believe installations made any difference to the rate at which people reported incidents to the police nor did they see any increase in police response to reported incidents following installations. In the end, there are characteristics that were found to determine whether a CCTV scheme meets its objectives; ‘scheme objectives, management, density, camera coverage, and positioning, technical characteristics and operation of the control room’.However, Page 6 of 10 none of the characteristics was found to have any direct link with the outcomes but each contributed to the outcomes in various levels, (Gill and Spriggs, 2005: x). Theoretical perspective The situational concept within which CCTV finds its application as derived from therational choice theory focuses on the crime event by increasing the risk of getting caught. It could be proposed that the greater the number of potential offenders within the target retail store that perceive this risk the more the impact on the shoplifters and the refore the more the impact on crime. As far as crime prevention is concerned, a positive impact is one which also reduces crime. Drawing from the approach of Wikstrom, (2008:129) to the explanation of process(mechanism) by which ‘cause’ produces ‘effect’ and the process (mechanism) that‘connects cause and effect that brings about the effect’; what triggers the crime event in an individual in a particular context or environment (situational mechanism) needs to be

108 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

understood in order to understand the process by which CCTV achieves its results in some settings, (Wikstrom 2008:129). The possible mechanisms (what it is about CCTV) that affect individual offenders resulting in an outcome can be investigated from the rational choice and routine activity per spectives, (Beck and Peacock 2009:97). The rational choice perspective which forms the basis for situational crime prevention,(Cornish and Clarke, 1986, vi, as cited in Cote, 2002) describes the decision making process of an offender and their choices in stages; that first, offender decides whether they are willing to satisfy their wants by getting involved in crime, followed by the type of offence they are likely to commit as informed by the individuals current situation, then eventually choosing a target. It is believed that crimes which can be completed in a short space of time are hardly reduced by the presence of CCTV compared to those that take more time to complete given the offender’s calculation of time and effort. Thus, assessing impact of CCTV in a retail shop will inevitably take account of ‘the routine activity theory’ that an offender in the presence of a suitable target and absence of a capable guardian results in a crime event. This theory is complemented by Wortley & Mazerolle’s (2008) view of the rational choice perspective that an offender still needs to calculate if expected benefits meet the expected costs or risks. If this is the case, it could be proposed that CCTV produces a desirable outcome only specific to rational crimes perpetrated by rational offenders. This is evident in the Gill and Spriggs, (2005) research finding that produced desirable effects in car parks and residential areas as opposed to the inconclusive results in city centres; with violent crimes showing no reduction in the intervention areas. Therefore, the context within which CCTV can be expected to produce a desired outcome must be one which induces rationality in the minds of potential www.ind-safety.com


TECH UPDATE

offenders. Consequently, Gill and Spriggs (2005) found CCTV to produce desirable effects in places with access control. It may be inferred that access control induces territoriality, (Crowe, 2000:36) enhancing both natural surveillance and electronic (CCTV) surveillance precipitating some sense of rationality in the minds of potential offenders. In order to ascertain CCTV effectiveness, it might be necessary evaluate through interviewing techniques the varying degrees of this rationality in individual offenders, aseffectiveness of CCTV is dependent on the individual offender’s perception of risk According to Tilley, (1993), CCTV fires mechanisms by way of making it more likely that offenders will be caught, stopped or removed, punished or deterred. In addition, the offenders may not wish to risk apprehension or prosecution using the evidence captured on video tape or observed. More so, increased publicity about CCTV and its usage in catching thieves are received by potential offenders thereby deterring them from committing crime as risk exceeds benefit. This can only be possible if the context (environment) can induce security awareness or rationality in potential offenders in that context. Page 8 of 10 in summary, a particular crime prevention measure in one context (in this case CCTV) fires mechanisms which produces a particular outcome, (Tilley, 1993:3). ‘Mechanism’ can be said to be the impact the security measure has on the potential offender leading to the CCTV producing a certain outcome in a specific ‘context’. While ‘context’ refers to the conditions necessary for the crime prevention measure to impact on a potential offender (mechanism) to achieve the desired outcome; out –come patterns seek to know what the practical effects of causal mechanisms fired from a given context are, (Tilley,1993:3).In conclusion, from the theory analysis above, the conditions that make CCTV do better in some setting than others can be linked to environmental www.ind-safety.com

design and individual offender’s rationality. The level of rationality and how it varies from person to person have a bearing on how CCTV can achieve its desired outcome in retail shops and this can be evaluated if we can interview all those that may have to

Schools have hall monitors to make sure no one leaves class, and they have people who monitor the kids coming and going. However, that does not mean that the monitoring is perfect It is important that schools have security cameras set up that can monitor children coming and going to ensure that they do not leave the school grounds and get lost. It is unsafe and a severe fire hazard to lock the doors of a school so children cannot leave, but it is possible to keep an eye on them through cameras. For many principles and teachers, having security cameras in the halls to see children coming and going goes beyond finding those who are skipping out on class, it is more about safety and keeping children safe in a sometimes dangerous world. With cameras outside the school, you can not only monitor the children to make sure there are no injuries in the playground, you can also monitor those around the schoolyard and diffuse a dangerous situation before it happens. If you see someone standing by a fence, or someone talking to the children, you can send a teacher over to asses the situation and deal with the potential problem before it becomes tragic. School vandalism has also happened on occasion, and that costs a lot of time and money for the schools. With security cameras outside the school, hooked into a surveillance system, you can keep vandals from approaching the school, or catch them after they hit it.

Record School Surveillance Using DVRs Surveillance DVRsTwenty years ago, video tapes were the only media that could be used to record what sub-par video cameras saw. However, in our current digital age, we can use DVRs to not only see things a lot clearer, but for longer periods of time too.

110 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

That means that if something happens at a school, if there is a shady character lurking around or a child goes missing, you can jump to the DVR and see what the video cameras saw, anywhere in the school, to determine what happened and how the situation can be either resolved, or kept from happening again. Through your surveillance system, you will be able to use your DVR to see everything that has happened at your school, in crystal clear quality, for the past few weeks. This is an excellent tool for both student and school safety.

Remote Monitoring Your School

One of the most innovative things that has ever been done in keeping neighborhoods safe is the Neighborhood Watch Program. The same principle is applied to remote monitoring. In this case, you can monitor the school from your own home computer. You can see if anyone is around the school, you can see if someone is vandalizing it, you can even see your own child in their classroom when you are feeling down and need a pickme-up at work. Remote viewing technology is amazing for many people because it offers them the ability to see the school, from anywhere in the world. For many parents, this gives them the peace of mind knowing that if they want to see what their kids are up to at school, all they have to do is log into the remote viewing system. For schools, this gives them the air of looking out for the children and being totally open by allowing parents to see the school through the remote viewing technology that uses the security cameras and security surveillance system of the school. School is a place of fun and happiness and it is important it stays that way. Vandalism, sexual predators and school shootings are an unfortunate product of our society at times, but with a good surveillance system, you can prevent your school, or your children, from falling victim. The cost of the system is well worth the peace of mind you get. www.ind-safety.com

Fire Safety in Oil & Gas industry : Protecting people & property Changing conditions bring new and unusual problems with an ever present threat of catastrophic losses. The capabilities of the fire protection engineer are challenged every time again during the execution of a study for the Oil, Gas and Process industries. A thorough knowledge of the different processes and an overall understanding of the product chemistry is indispensable to assure a successful safety and fire protection evaluation.

Advanced Safety Management in the Oil & Gas Industry

T

he oil and gas industry delivers significant benefits to the community, providing much of the energy needed for industrial, commercial and domestic life. A large scale fire can expose the workers and the community to extreme danger, and can be financially devastating when the cost of destroyed equipment and lost production is tallied. Fire incidents in onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities need to be brought under control very quickly, before a minor mishap results in a major disaster. The oil & gas and processing industry has recognised from the start that firesafety and fire protection are an important part of facility planning and operations. 112 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

Safety and Health management are becoming an evermore important aspect in the control and reduction of accidents, incidents, illness and expensive litigation claims. In Oil & Petrochemical industries the essential purpose of Safety Management regulations is to access the scopes and definitions, areas of specific responsibility of various parties, competencies expected, safety awareness and safe working practices, occupational safety plans, training procedures, supply of information and document control, keeping of records etc. Occupational safety linked to the European six pack covering such Areas as the management of health and safety, work equipment, personal protective equipment, manual handling are particularly applicable to the construction and Oil/petrochemical industries, as is the control of general and personal hygiene and health surveillance www.ind-safety.com

programming. Many companies have standards for fire protection and many states and municipalities have building and fire codes that they follow. However, these standards and codes have typically been “prescriptive” in nature and required that fire protection be provided, regardless of the frequency or severity of the potential hazard. Fire protection in the energy production industry generally consists of fire proofing, water or deluge systems, foam systems and fire detection and alarm systems. The fire protection community is slowly using performance-based criteria in determining appropriate fire protection. “Performance-based” applications to code compliance have been adopted across the world. In the energy production sector, risk assessment is used and the latest modeling programs are used to assess the hazards of fires and explosions. Based on the results of these studies, the fire protection engineer and owner can then determine the appropriate fire protection required for the hazard. This paper addresses the use of risk assessment techniques for fire protection in the energy production industry.

Is More Better?

In the Piper Alpha incident in 1989, 168 people lost their lives as a result of an explosion and resulting fire in an offshore platform. Would more fire protection have helped in that incident? Figure 1 is a storage tank fire and is another example of the need for fire protection. There are many other incidents where the question of adequate detection and mitigation could have reduced the impact of the incident.

How Much is Too Much? www.ind-safety.com

There has always been debate about the amount of fire protection that is necessary in the energyproduction industry. Inadequate or improper protection can lead to potential loss of life and property, resulting in reduced production and possible environmental impact. Overprotection can lead to increased cost, false alarms or trips of systems and increased maintenance. More importantly, overprotection can lead to a false sense of security by management that the facility is completely safe. So what is the correct level of fire protection?

The Use of Risk Assessment

Risk assessment is a process where the results of a risk analysis are used to make decisions, either through a risk ranking of hazard reduction strategies or through comparison to target risk levels and cost-benefit analysis. Risk is often referred to as the product of the consequences of the potential INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW | JUNE 2013 | 113


TECH TRENDS

this approach can be used for Liquified Natural Gas facilities, gas turbine generator stations, power plants or practically any type of energy-production facility. The outcome of a hazard analysis is a list of potential fire hazards that may occur on the facility. A partial list could include jet fire, pool fire, explosion, electrical fire or building fire. The list would also include the corresponding location where each could occur. These hazards can then be turned into scenarios for further analysis. A common mistake is to list just the hazards, where as a scenario is a series of events that need to occur to create a hazard.

Consequence Analysis

hazard times the probability of occurrence of scenarios. Risk assessment techniques can be used to determine the amount of fire protection required for a given hazard by conducting an analysis or calculations to define the fire protection required to mitigate the hazards. The process consists of a series of steps as illustrated in Figure 2. Each step in the risk assessment process is discussed in the following sections.

Hazard Analysis

The first step in any risk assessment is to conduct a hazard analysis. The hazard analysis techniques used to identify potential hazards in the process and facility are shown in Table 1. Typical facilities where hazard analyses are performed include refineries, storage terminals, gas plants, platforms, floating production/storage and off loading floating storage and off loading, or any combination of these. However, 114 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

Consequence analysis is the process used to determine the impact or magnitude of the scenarios. For example, one scenario could be a pump seal failure in the light-ends handling area of a facility that results in a vapor cloud forming with an explosion if ignited. In assessing the consequences, there are two very important questions that must be addressed: • What is the range in size of the events that can occur? • What is the impact of the event?

In assessing the impact, one would normally take into account the radiant heat, blast overpressure and/or toxic effects on any occupied buildings, evacuation routes, escape equipment and process equipment that could be involved in escalation. Toxic effects may include the products of combustion from fires such as smoke, carbon monoxide or hydrogen sulfide contained in the material. In performing any consequence analysis, analytical tools can be very useful in determining the www.ind-safety.com


TECH UPDATE

consequences of a scenario. In most cases, each scenario will have a variety of conditions that need to be evaluated in the consequence analysis. This includes factors such as the size of the release, orientation of the release, temperature and pressure of the operation, and weather conditions (that will all vary). The impact of these variables on the results and the behavior of the release must be taken into consideration during the modeling. A question that often arises during the consequence analysis is how sophisticated the program needs to be. Programs range from spreadsheets that use simple equations to computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling that can take days for a single scenario evaluation. The answer is that it depends on the complexity of the design, the time the analysis is being performed and the desired results. In the conceptual stage, simple models can be used, but as the design details increase, the complexity of the consequence analysis frequently also increases.

Likelihood Determination

If the installed fire protection would be based on only the consequence analysis, then the energyproduction industry would be very well protected. In reality, though, the likelihood of the consequences must be taken into consideration. In determining the likelihood of the consequences, certain key information is required, such as the frequency of the initiating event, frequency of ignition, probability of escalation, likelihood that the weather will be favorable or not and other factors specific to the given scenario. In any likelihood determination, there are generally www.ind-safety.com

a large number of scenarios to be analyzed. This means that computer models may have to be used to ensure that the iterative process of evaluating each variable of each scenario is performed. The experience level of the analyst is very important. The analyst will make many decisions in the analysis that can influence

INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW | JUNE 2013 | 115


TECH TRENDS

of the data used in the calculations.

Risk Tolerance

the outcome. In determining the likelihood, it is very easy for the analyst to go to a previous report and select a frequency to use in the analysis or spend days looking for a value that does not exist. The source used and assumptions made need to be carefully documented.

Risk

The “risk” is the product of consequence and likelihood of each scenario. The risk for each scenario can be combined by specific areas or for the whole facility to obtain desired risk profiles. The risk is calculated using event and fault trees that take into account safety and mitigation systems. The main problem associated with any risk assessment is the appropriateness

116 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

After the risk is calculated, the results must be compared to either governmental or company criteria to determine if the risk is tolerable. This means that the risk is at a level people are generally willing to accept. If it is, then additional fire protection is not required and the level of fire protection (mitigation) used in the risk calculation is adequate. If the level of risk does not meet the” acceptable” risk criteria, then additional mitigation may be required. The options for reducing the risk are selected and the analysis recalculated to determine the impact on the risk. In some cases, the options provide significant risk reduction, whereas others have little impact on the risk. One concept that is being used extensively is as low as reasonable practical (ALARP). Figure 3 shows the ALARP concept. This concept suggests that, at some point, the cost to mitigate a hazard is so high that it is no longer practical to implement the option. Cost-benefit analysis can be used to determine if ALARP has been achieved.

Jet Fire Analysis Example

In a jet fire assessment, the two important parameters are the flame dimensions and the calculation of the thermal radiation field around the flame. The convective heat transfer rate can be very high, leading to rapid failure of objects inside the flame envelope. Thermal radiation outside the flame envelope can also lead to equipment failure. In addition, there is the potential for fatalities and to block escape routes over a large fraction of the deck of a floating production/storage and offloading vessel.

m2, most equipment items, with the exception of load-bearing steel plates, will survive, while personnel fatalities are credible down to below 12.5 kW/m2.1 There are many methods available to calculate flame lengths and thermal radiation contours for an ignited release of gas from a leak on process equipment. Most commercial consequence assessment codes, such as PHAST,2 can be used to calculate thermal radiation contours for jet fires. The example considers a release of lift gas, which is primarily methane, at 25 MPa and 60C. The release occurs from a riser and is immediately ignited, resulting in a jet fire. The wind speed is 5 m/s. For an assumed 10 kg/s release, the calculated hole size is 14.6 mm. Radiation contours calculated using PHAST are shown in Figure 4 for 37.5 kW/m2, 12.5 kW/m2 and 6.3 kW/m2, where:

37.5 kW/m2

The yellow inner contour is typically taken as the criterion for immediate fatality. At this level, the pain threshold is virtually instantaneous, and probit analysis gives a 50% probability of lethality in around 20 seconds. (Probit analysis provides a mathematical relationship between the magnitude of an effect [e.g., thermal radiation intensity], the duration of exposure and the proportion of an exposed population that might be affected by exposure to that effect.)

and probit analysis predicts 50% lethality in around 80 seconds. Fifty percent fatalities would be expected for personnel in the zone between 37.5 kW/m2 and 12.5 kW/m3.

6.3 kW/m2

The blue contour is typically taken as the limiting radiation intensity for escape actions lasting more than one minute. This is equivalent to the exposure level in for escape actions lasting up to one minute for personnel in appropriate clothing. Egress routes exposed to radiation intensities above this level are

12.5 kW/m2

The green contour is typically taken as the limiting radiation intensity for escape actions lasting a few seconds (such as jumping into the sea). At this level, the pain threshold is reached in around four seconds www.ind-safety.com

TECH TRENDS

considered impaired. Figure 4 shows that there is the potential for immediate fatalities from the event. The figure shows that the escape routes will be impaired for personnel aft of the release. Personnel at these locations need to go to alternative muster points and may become fatalities if the event escalates while they are at these alternative locations. The likelihood of the scenario would be calculated based upon the probability of the release (pipe failure, gasket failure, etc.), the probability of ignition after the release occurs and the probability of 118 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

blast overpressures being generated. Evaluation of the potential for fatalities of personnel trapped on escalation of the event would be considered as part of the risk analysis and would be dependent upon where the personnel are when the scenario would occur. There is no discernable effect on the temporary safe refuge (TSR) for the release shown. However, if the release is directed towards the TSR, there will be direct flame impingement on the firewall in front of the TSR. An “A”-rated firewall will be penetrated in around 15 minutes with direct impingement of a jet flame. An “H”-rated firewall will survive over one hour in these conditions.3 Thus the additional expense of an “H”-rated fire-wall is justified for this scenario. There is also potential for escalation as unprotected process equipment, steel plate and beams will rupture or fail in under 10 minutes when directly exposed to jet flame. When exposed to a radiative flux of 37.5 kW/m2 process equipment and steel beams under load will likely survive for 60 minutes.3 Using event trees, the frequency of the jet fire impacting the accommodations was estimated. The frequency of a leak was calculated as 1.40E-3, a probability of ignition of 0.3, weather direction toward the building of 15% for an overall frequency of 6.3E-5 events/ year or once in 15,873 years. Given the consequences of immediate fatalities with 10 personnel in the area in the unlikely event the fire occurs, the risk for this scenario is 10 x 6.3E-5 events per year which equals 6.3E-4 fatalities/ year. If the company’s risk tolerance criteria is 1.0E-4, then the scenario fails this criteria and additional risk reduction is required. www.ind-safety.com

n 5 JAN 2013 approx 12:30 hrs devastating explosion followed by Major Fire incident reported in Motor Sprit storage tank at IOCL, oil terminal village kawas, Surat (Gujarat).Which claims life of two persons and petrol worth Rs 35 crore has been burnt and Rs 10 crore loss of infrastructure has also been reported in the blaze. The fire was controlled after a 21hour continuous fire fighting operation by more than 15 fire brigades, not only from Surat but also from adjoining areas like Valsad, Navsari, Vapi, Ankleshwar and Bharuch & Essar oil Jamnagar to contain the flames. The Emergency fire teams of Essar steel India limited, Surat Municipal Corporation, RIL, KRIBHCO, NTPC, ONGC and other companies also rushed to IOC facility to assist in Major fire management. In my hitherto span of 17

years of service, I have witness and attended various major fire emergency calls, but the recent IOCL oil storage terminal depot, major fire emergency call was my lifetime experience. On getting information of fire incident our Fire teams immediately respond to site. On reaching at site came to know, Motor Spirit storage tank number–4 (Capacity 9689KL), diameter 30 Meter height 15 meter was on full surface fire. The other eight adjacent highly flammable hydrocarbon storage tanks of motor sprit, High Speed Diesel, super kerosene, petrol, IOCL bottling plant & gas pipeline for local consumers at high risk.

other company fire brigades were engaged to douse the major fire. The Gujarat State disaster management authority immediately alert all fire services in Gujarat state and DISH (Director Industries Health and Safety). The HSE department senior official along with Human resources, administration and security team of EStIL, Hazira were present at site. Approx 75 numbers of fire tenders and 30 numbers of water bouzers were at site. The strategy of fire fighting was plan to safeguard the surrounding oil storage tanks number 3 & 5 with control burning of motor sprit storage tank number 4 and avoid mechanical failure. The top priority was to save petrol storage tank number-5 capacity 9689KL (Approx 7800KL Inventory at the time of fire) which was not approachable. There was an explosion occurred in tank number 4 floating roof pontoon during maintenance job (Probably while arresting hydrocarbon leakage from pontoon). The probable cause of explosion might be due to uncontrolled source of ignition at floating roof tank number 4 or human error (The root cause of explosion is in under investigation).The half part of floating roof blown off due to impact of explosion and lying at North side approach road of tank number 4 & 5. The north side approach route obstructed for movement of fire emergency vehicles. All fire emergency team were engaged in fire fighting operation for the protection tank number 3 & 4 with application of foam into tank number 4 and water spray for surface cooling of tank 3 & 4.Our fire team takes the initiative to established fire water relay system for uninterrupted supply of fire water and minimizes movement of vehicle and emergency team members. I take the initiative for meeting with all fire officer to establish coordination among fire services. Mean while senior officials of surat district has www.ind-safety.com

reached at site take the charge of incident commander. We have a discussion about personnel safety of working emergency vehicles & team members, identification of HOT/COLD/SAFE Zone and barication of area with the help of police to avoid any unauthorized entry or mishap. The emergency response team members operating in downwind direction were withdrawn (South side of tank area).In keeping view of personnel safety, safe evacuation avoid further injury or casualty due to mechanical failure of tanks or Vapor explosion. We have surveyed the surrounding area of IOCL plant with the District senior officials to search alternative approach route for tank number5.One approach route was identified at North side of oil storage tank number 4.We have decided to break the concrete wall with the help of JCB & prepare the temporary approach road for tank no. 5.The application of foam with long range foam monitors on rim seal area started & surface cooling with water from ground level. The tank number 5 was the most critical to save, having Petrol stock 7800 KL, which rim seal was already caught fire at three areas. I have took the lead for firefighting operation for petrol storage tank number-5 with the help of GIDC Notifier area fire tender and my fire team member. Later NTPC Kawas fire team advance in spite of unbearable heat radiation up to appox 10 meter of tank number 5 dyke walls and foam application started on tank-5 and other fire services also join for continuous foam application on rim seal area. On 06.01.2013 at 12:30hrs flames were coming out at tank number -5 rim seal area even though continuous application of foam by long range monitor from ground level. I have a discussion with senior fire as well district officials present at site that tank number 5 is at high risk. If the rim seal fire is not extinguished it may lead to catastrophic disaster.

TECH UPDATE

I knew that the rim seal fire can only be extinguished on reaching at tank roof with foam application inside foam dam(Due to design constraint of fixed foam pourer system, external foam supply was not possible, fire water network dry out). Nobody was willing to go on the top of the floating roof tank because tank was already exposed in huge heat radiation more than 24 hours. I have diagnose the sign and symptoms of tank number 5 rim seal fire like a doctor before starting treatment of patient. The rim seal was made of fire retardant material, that why flames were seen in three pockets instead of full rim seal area. In past I have attend a workshop on how to extinguish footing roof tank rim seal fire in case semi fixed foam pourer system collapse or fixed foam pourer system foam storage tank foam exhaust or external foam supply not possible to foam pourers due to design constraint of fixed foam pour system or non availability of water. I have decided to go with calculated risk to extinguish the tank 5 rim seal fire. It was time to use my vast working experience in petrochemical and oil and gas industry. I have briefed my EStIL & IOCL fire team about personnel safety action plan, important safety tips for working on tank roof, consequence of flash fire, heat radiation, how to control the rim seal fire at tank no. 5 (inventory 7800 KL Petrol) and safe method of foam application inside rim seal foam dam. After ensuring ground level backup with high range water monitor and uninterrupted water and foam supply & relay system at ground level command centre with RIL, ONGC, SMC & other fire services. The foam application was started with foam making branch at floating roof into rim seal area. All communication while fire fighting was carried out with fire service signals between ground level and at tank roof fire team. The most critical and audacious operation started

138 | JUNE 2013 | INDUSTRIAL SAFETY REVIEW

on floating roof tank number 5.The flames were moving in circumference of rim seal area as the finished foam application into foam dam continued approx 30 minute till the rim seal flammable vapor fully sealed & fire was put off. If this fire fighting operation has been not carried out, it would have been a terrible disaster, because IOC Bottling Plant, HPCL depot and other highly flammable storage tanks & gas pipe line feeding to local consumers were adjacent to IOCL oil terminal. This was the most commendable job done by entire EStIL team under the able guidance of senior management leadership in coordination with HSE department seniors and other fire service under the guidance of District Authority, Director Industrial Safety and Health, Gujarat State Disaster Management Authority. Myself along with one colleague Mr. Narendra.S.Doot have been honored for valiant commendable job in fire fighting operation and incident command and contribution to control and extinguished major fire incident at IOCL oil terminal on the Republic Day 26 JAN 2013 parade at surat, Police parade ground by Gujarat state cabinet minister. The root cause of devastating fire incident “is under investigation whether the fire was caused by human error or system gaps or both by the district administration. In my opinion & experience some probable Factor which might lead to major fire incident were mentioned below • Unplanned job and improper fire risk assessment before attending pontoon leakage job at floating roof tank • Non compliance work permit system • Lack of supervision • Uncontrolled sources of ignition • Use of mobile while working on tank roof

www.ind-safety.com


TECH UPDATE

• Synthetic cloths worn by contract worker might generate static spark lead to explosion in leaking pontoon • Use of normal torch light • Use of normal tools for maintenance which might generate spark • Other unknown reason might reflect in incident investigation report

The stumbling block in fire emergency management :-

• Risk assessment and emergency mitigation plan was not available for oil storage tanks explosion & full surface fire • Plan layout was not available • Inventory transfer system not implemented due to one tank was under maintenance • Oil storage tank dyke wall was half filled due to operation of all water long range monitors • Due to heat radiation dyke wall drainage system valve not approachable to release stagnant water inside dyke wall area, which might escalate the fire situation due to overflow flammable hydrocarbon in surrounding area. • Delay in establishing Unified Incident command and control system • Ground incident command centre not established • Non availability of common channel for wireless communication system with emergency fire services to update situation or to help each other • Insufficient fire trained staff to respond the fire emergency in early stage • Manually operated Fixed fire protection system • Non availability of High range foam cum water monitor, foam www.ind-safety.com
