SCR Waste Management Plan

1. Purpose of the plan


Schlumberger Cambridge Research (SCR) Waste Management Plan shall be maintained and
implemented to prevent mis-management of waste arising from SCR activities, and to ensure
compliance with relevant UK legislation, and QHSE S008 Environment Standard.

2. Scope
This plan shall be applied to all the wastes generated by SCR employees and regular contractors
in the course of their activities at SCR.

3. Responsibility
All Schlumberger employees and regular contractors (security, cleaning and kitchen teams) are
responsible for their activities that generate wastes, and for following the requirements of this
plan.

SCR HSE and Facilities team is responsible for the cleaning contractors, selection and
management of waste contractors, for arranging waste collections on a scheduled basis, and
working with the SCR Chemicals Officer for arranging hazardous waste collections.

4. Management of wastes at SCR

4.1 General office and facility activities


General wastes (including paper, cardboard, drinks containers, packaging, refer to Appendix 1.)
will be segregated by employees in to the dedicated waste and recycling bins situated throughout
the facility.
The cleaning contractors will then empty these containers, and transfer the contents to the
appropriate storage containers located in the rear yard. Refer to Photographs 1. And 4.

4.2 Laboratory wastes


Research Scientists will segregate sharps, contaminated PPE, broken glassware etc, in to the
individual waste containers provided. (Refer to Appendix 1).
The Research Scientist who finds that the relevant bin is full, will empty the bin and transfer the
contents to the appropriate storage containers located in the rear yard, or the chemical bulk
store.

Other chemical wastes generated in containers should be labeled clearly as WASTE, with contents
clearly described, hazards, and container securely closed. The SCR Chemical Officer should be
notified, and MSDS provided (if not already available on the SCR Chemicals database), and when
agreed with the SCR Chemical Officer, the container should be moved for external storage in the
waste chemicals storage unit.

4.3 Test hall and workshops


Employees will segregate wastes in to the containers provided. For low volume wastes, such as
metal swarf, the Line Manager must notify the HSE/facility Manager when a collection is
required. (Refer to Appendix 1)

If hazardous wastes are generated in containers, they should be labeled clearly as WASTE, with
contents clearly described, hazards, and container securely closed. The SCR Chemical Officer

SCR001 Revision 6th December 2010 Page 1 of 5


SCR Waste Management Plan

should be notified, and MSDS provided (if not already available on the SCR Chemicals database),
and the container moved for external storage in the waste chemicals storage unit.

If bulk liquid waste collections are required by vacuum tanker, the Line Manager responsible
should give the HSE Manager at least one week notice in advance.

4.4 Infrequent or abnormal activities generating wastes


If SCR plans to undertake activities that generate wastes other than those stated in Appendix 1
the Line Manager responsible for the activity should contact the HSE Manager in advance and
communicate;

 Nature of intended wastes (summary of chemical and physical characteristics, copy


MSDS)
 Planned total volume/ weight (detailing number and size of containers, or size of vacuum
tanker required if bulk waste liquid is to be generated)
 Planned date(s) of activities generating the waste

The HSE Manager should review the proposed activity and resulting wastes, for their HSE
approval, and to work with the Line Manager to put necessary arrangements in place for waste
streams and collection by waste contractor (Appendix 2), and updating Appendices as necessary
for new waste streams.

4.5 Waste documentation
All waste collections will be accompanied by a waste transfer note (non hazardous waste) or
hazardous waste consignment note (hazardous wastes). A suitable trained SCR representative will
review the document for the following information, before signing on behalf of SCR;
 Waste described correctly and accurately
 Volume, weight or quantity stated
 Hazards (for hazardous waste)
 European waste catalogue (EWC) code
 Date
 Contractor details and signature

4.6 SCR Registration as a Hazardous Waste Producer


The HSE Manager will be responsible for maintaining SCR’s Hazardous Waste Producer
registration, with the Environment Agency. An annual renewal is required. A copy of the
registration will be held in the SEHF and the Producer number proved to waste contractors as
required.

5. Reporting
5.5 Risk Incident Reporting
Any event or hazardous situation relating to waste management (e.g. incorrect waste
segregation, errors on waste manifests etc) should be reported in QUEST as an Environmental RIR
(following SLB QHSE S002).

5.6 SafetyNet Reporting


Quantities of waste and wastewater generated are tracked through monthly reporting in QUEST
SafetyNet (Environmental Performance Indicator data), by the location HSE Manager.
General wastes and laboratory wastes are reported in the category for Solid waste generated.
Wastes that are recycled can also be reported in the category Solid waste recycled. Waste oils
and hydrocarbon solvents are reported in the corresponding category.

SCR0001Revision No. 1, 6th December 2010 Page 2 of 5


SCR Waste Management Plan

Vacuum tanker collections of separator cleaning waste for Aqueous waste generated. Wastewater
that is recycled can also be reported in the category Aqueous waste recycled
All waste transport, treatment, disposal, documentation and analytical costs are reported (costs
converted to US dollars).

6. Training
All SCR employees will be assigned Schlumberger Environment Level 1 training (in QUEST), and
will be made aware of this plan.

SCR regular contractors (cleaning, kitchen and security team) will be trained in accordance with
this plan.

Waste manifests should only be signed by suitably trained SCR employees (Appendix 3). Training
arranged by HSE Manager, with three yearly refreshers.

7. Document Control
This plan will be communicated to employees and contractors (as necessary) at SCR, made
available for reference to SCR employees, and filed in the Site Environmental History File.

Waste transfer notes will be held in the Site Environmental History File (SEHF) for a minimum of
two years, and hazardous waste consignment notes, for a minimum of three years.

Schlumberger Private
Periodic checks (minimum six monthly) will be made by the HSE Manger or their designate on the
Waste Contractor licensing (Appendix 2) to ensure current and valid copies are held in the SEHF.

8. Waste Contractor Auditing


The HSE Manager will make arrangements for regular auditing of SCR waste contractors in
accordance with QHSE S008, using the Waste Vendor Survey template available in QUEST, and
supporting training and guidance.

Copy audits will be held in the SEHF.
