Ak-Kim Kimya Sanayi ve Tic. A.Ş. carries out inorganic and organic chemicals, textile auxiliaries, water and paper chemicals, cement and concrete additives, construction chemicals and ultrafiltration module production and provides turnkey projects of chemical facilities. According to “Regulation on Prevention of Major Industrial Accidents and Mitigation of Impacts”, hazardous substances in our organization have been declared using the notification system of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization and a safety report has been prepared because it is a top-level organization.
In every activity carries out, our company complies with the “Regulation on Prevention of Major Industrial Accidents and Reducing Effects” and in accordance with the regulation major accident scenarios have been studied, and the frequency of occurrence and severity of impacts of the toxic dispersion due to ammonia, chlorine and dimethylamine and jet fire due to dimethylamine, trimethylamine and 1,2,4-trimethyl benzene were determined. In case of public’s exposure to toxic chemicals that may dispersed as a result of an accident, adverse effects may occur on the eyes, nose, throat irritation, shortness of breath, chest pain, pulmonary edema and eyes, skin and respiratory system. Nonetheless, the probability of occurrence of all major accident scenarios has been reduced to an acceptable level using technical measures (safety instrumented systems, ex-proof equipment, emergency stop systems, pressure relief systems, gas detection systems, fire detection and extinguishing systems etc.) and organizational measures (organizing process safety-related systems, constantly consulting employees regarding to the safety management system, following up safety-related technological developments, collaborating with emergency departments etc.).
In case of a major industrial accident, despite all the technical and organizational measures taken, to overcome the accident and minimize its impact, we implement the Internal Emergency Plan within the scope of the relevant regulations. Within the Internal Emergency Plan we prepared, we have formed various service groups (Fire Service Group, CBRN Service Group, Search and Rescue Service Group etc.), have determined how to coordinate with the relevant parties for cooperation with the emergency services (Ambulance service chief, Fire Brigade, AFAD) and have made adequate arrangements for emergency response in the organization.
