MES State Fire Control Service restricts activity at the fire-hazardous facility (video, photo)

The State Fire Control Service of the Ministry of Emergency Situations, within its competence, continues to take necessary measures to ensure fire safety in the country.

In this context, during the inspection on chopping work carried out on the unserviceable cargo ship in the territory belonging to “Az Steel Company” CJSC in Sahil settlement, Garadagh district, Baku, the State Fire Control Service identified numerous shortcomings in the field of fire safety, which posed a direct threat to human life or health, environment and state property interests.

Thus:

-the territory of the facility, the areas where the chopping works were carried out were not cleaned of oil and fuel oil wastes;

- the territory of the facility was not fenced with movable boundaries to protect flammable constructions from sparks when carrying out works with the use of open flames;

- workplaces where the open flame was used, places where welding units and transformers were installed were not cleaned of any combustible materials within a radius of 5 meters;

-to work with faulty devices during the electro-gas welding works in the territory of the facility was not forbidden;

- measures were not taken on necessary rules of behavior and organization of firefighting in case of fire in the territory of the facility;

-fire regime was not determined by the order (instruction) to ensure fire safety of the facility;

-taking into account the cases of power outages at the facility, the service staff was not provided with a backup electricity generator;

-the facility was not fully equipped with primary firefighting equipment and fire extinguishers.

Thus, in the current situation, the operation of the facility will lead to a short-term expansion of the fire, which can occur there at any time.

Taking into account the above-mentioned, in order to protect human life and health, state property interests, national wealth, environment, all types of property from fires that may occur due to violation of fire safety norms and rules, guided by paragraph 9 of Article 25 of the Law of the Republic of Azerbaijan "On Fire Safety", Article 28 of the Law of the Republic of Azerbaijan "On regulation of inspections in the field of entrepreneurship and protection of the interests of entrepreneurs", as well as the requirements of paragraph 9.7 of the "Regulations on the State Fire Control Service of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Republic of Azerbaijan", a decision was made to suspend the work on unserviceable cargo ship in the territory belonging to “Az Steel Company” CJSC in Sahil settlement, Garadagh district, Baku, where violations of fire safety norms and rules were revealed.
