The present Cuban Environmental Strategy identifies the contamination of crude oil wastes as a problem with particular managemental characteristics, which is managed by the implementation of environmental rehabilitation projects. The goal of this search was to manage the working risk factors dealt with the rehabilitation projects in hydrocarbon contaminated areas. The project “Comprehensive environmental rehabilitation in Punta Majagua, Cienfuegos, Cuba” was selected as a case study. To achieve this goal, a procedure using the methodological convergence of diverse tools was implemented. Different techniques of managemental processes, quality and working risks were used as well as several instruments for gathering information. 50 working risk factors were identified associated to all processes and 40 % of them were assessed as critical.

Abstract

The present Cuban Environmental Strategy identifies the contamination of crude oil wastes as a problem with particular managemental characteristics, which is managed by the implementation of environmental rehabilitation projects. The goal of this search was to manage the working risk factors dealt with the rehabilitation projects in hydrocarbon contaminated areas. The project “Comprehensive environmental rehabilitation in Punta Majagua, Cienfuegos, Cuba” was selected as a case study. To achieve this goal, a procedure using the methodological convergence of diverse tools was implemented. Different techniques of managemental processes, quality and working risks were used as well as several instruments for gathering information. 50 working risk factors were identified associated to all processes and 40 % of them were assessed as critical. The most dangerous processes were the bioremediation campaign and the creation of technical and logistic capacities. Some indicators that revealed the efficacy and efficiency of the strategy in risk’s mitigation were identified. The workers’ satisfaction state at the workplace after this intervention was assessed as positive, except for the dimensions of physical working conditions and salary. These results confirm the right management of risk factors in this project as its possibility of generalizing experience to get safe working standards thus contributing to the achievement of clean productions.
