2. #### EN13480-3 Tee Branch Reinforcement Pad Calculation

by , 05-31-2017 at 01:03 PM
Hello*

I am doing the branch tee reinforcement pad requirement calculation according to EN 13480-3 section 8.4.3. I have some queries as below.

(1) In Equation 8.4.3-4 ( lpl <= ls). I have calculated the effective reinforcement of shell pipe (ls) value according to equation 8.4.1-2 which is coming around 190 mm. So According to the equation I can use the reinforcement pad width less than ls means less than 190 mm. If I follow the above equation * it will never satisfy the final equation 8.4.3-6. it seems this equation is not correct.
If code restrict the reinforcement pad width how we can satisfy the final equation without increasing the pad width where reinforcement pad width is also limited to eas according to equation 8.4.3-5. Refer attached code page attachment (EN13480-3-Page-82.pdf). Please suggest.

(2) EN13480-3 equation 8.4.3-5 condition eapl<=eas shall be satisfy.
I am using the reinforcement pad thickness same as shell thickness* means pad will be cut from shell pipe during fabrication.

I am using the nominal pad thickness same as shell thickness 16 mm with assuming same corrosion allowances. Refer below calculation.
My nominal shell thickness en=16 mm. c0=3.4* c1=0.3 mm.so eas=16-3.4-0.3= 12.3 mm.
Plate thickness used enpl=16mm. c0=3.4* c1=0.3 mm. so eapl=12.3 mm.

Is my calculation & understanding is correct.

As in brief above code restrict the reinforcement pad thickness as well as width to compensate the cutting area for branch.

7. #### How can someone reach the top of the profession and become a leader in OHS?

Wayne Harris Chairman of ISQEM

During my travels I’m often asked the question “how can someone reach the top in our profession and be recognised as a leader of OHS”. I have listed below the top ten things that I recommend to people who either work for me, or I have mentored.

1. Think outside of the box and challenge normal ways of doing EHS.
2. Make sure you do not stagnate in one industry sector, be diverse and learn.
3. Think, act and talk like a businessman as well as an EHS professional.
4. Learn skills such as marketing, Public Relations, HR and finance.
5. Create your own personal image to reflect what you want to achieve.
6. Network at the right levels of the profession.
7. Visibility, get known locally and internationally.
8. Keep your knowledge up to date with latest trends, good and bad ones.
9. Seek and take advice when you need it
10. Always remember it takes a team to really make a success, so never claim you did it all yourself.

I know we can add all types of other attributes and values we need to adopt such as, communication, trust, respect, integrity, sensitivity etc., but what people need to do is have hard look at how they are perceived by others.

One of the main problems I have come across for people failing to progress in this industry is that they are out of date with business needs and the commercial world. In today’s economic climate OHS professionals need to bring true business added value to their organisation.

8. #### My Personal Safety Quotes:

by , 05-27-2013 at 12:07 PM
Over the years I have come up with several of my own safety and leadership quotations that I have used either in conferences, meetings or training sessions. Sometimes you can say just a few words and the message sticks with people for the rest of their lives. I have put below a few of my favourites that I have had success with when trying to make people accept their responsibilities and become leaders. Hopefully people will find useful to use during their own HSE or OHS training etc.

"Good leaders are those who know how to motivate and challenge people at all levels of an organization to achieve their best performance. In addition they support and provide the resources necessary to ensure it is possible to meet the goals that have been set”.

“No one cares how much you know about safety, until they know you can add to their success”

“ If you want to be a safety leader you must have innovation to succeed”

“I may not be a financial director, but I can help reduce your financial loss”

“If you don’t consider safety part of your leadership strategy, then you’re in the wrong job”

“A company director who thinks safety is a costly overhead should resign at the first opportunity”

“Only a fool would take a risk that would lose money or cause personal injury”

“You can’t say cutback on safety, and build a successful business in the same sentence”

“Real leaders know when to motivate and when to stand up for change”
