Executive Summary
Accidental Release Prevention and Emergency Response Policies

Kroger - Bouldercrest is committed to employee, public and environmental safety. This commitment is

demonstrated by our comprehensive accidental release prevention program that covers areas such as design, installation, operating procedures, maintenance, and employee training associated with the processes at our facility. It is our policy to implement appropriate controls to prevent possible releases of regulated substances. Unforeseeably, if such a release does occur, our highly trained emergency response personnel are at hand to control and mitigate the effects of the release. We are also completely coordinated with Fire Department/Hazmat Team which provides additional emergency response expertise.

The Stationary Source and the Regulated Substances Handled

Our facility's primary activities revolve around the production, storage and shipping of edible oil products.

Anhydrous ammonia is the only regulated substance present at our facility. All of the ammonia inventory is attributed to its use as a refrigerant.

The Worst Case Release Scenario(s) and the Alternative Release

Worst case and alternate release scenarios were developed using the methodology given in the EPA

"RMP*COMP"" as well as the EPA ""Risk Management Program Guidance for Ammonia Refrigeration"". The

details of the chosen scenarios are located within the Risk Management Program that is located on site.

The General Accidental Release Prevention Program and the Chemical-Specific Prevention Steps

Our facility has taken all the necessary steps to comply with the accidental release prevention requirements set out under 40 CFR Part 68 of the EPA. In addition, our facility is subject to the OSHA PSM standard under 29 CFR 1910.119. Our facility is also subject to EPCRA Section 302 notification requirements. The following sections briefly describe the elements of the release prevention program that is in place at our stationary source.

Process Safety Information

Kroger - Bouldercrest maintains a detailed record of written safety information that describes the chemical hazards, operating parameters and equipment designs associated with all the processes.

conducted as a regular practice at Kroger - Bouldercrest. These reviews are conducted to confirm that construction, equipment, operating and maintenance procedures are suitable for safe startup prior to placing equipment into operation.

Compliance Audits

Kroger - Bouldercrest conducts audits on a regular basis to determine whether the provisions set out under the RMP Rule are being implemented. These audits are carried out at least every 3 years and any corrective actions required as a result of the audits are undertaken in a safe and prompt manner.

Incident Investigation

Kroger - Bouldercrest promptly investigates any incident that could reasonably result in a catastrophic release of a regulated substance. These investigations are undertaken to identify the situation leading to the incident as well as any corrective actions to prevent the release from reoccurring. All reports are retained for a minimum of 5 years.

Employee Participation

Kroger - Bouldercrest truly believes that process safety management and accident prevention is a team effort.

Company employees are encouraged to express their views concerning accident prevention issues and to

recommend improvements. In addition, our employees have access to all information collected as part of the facility's compliance with the RMP Rule including information resulting from process hazard analyses.


On occasion, our company hires contractors to conduct specialized maintenance and construction activities. Prior to selecting a contractor, a thorough evaluation of safety performance of the contractor is carried out. Kroger - Bouldercrest has a strict poli
cy of informing the contractors of known potential hazards related the contractor's work and the processes. Contractors are also informed of all applicable procedures for emergency response to an accidental release of a regulated substance.

Five-year Accident History

Kroger - Bouldercrest has an excellent record of preventing accidental releases over the last 5 years. Due to our

release prevention policies, there has been no accidental release during this period.

Emergency Response Plan

Kroger - Bouldercrest has a written emergency response plan to deal with accidental releases of hazardous materials. The plan includes all aspects of emergency response including adequate first aid and medical treatment, evacuations, notification of local emergency response agencies and the public, as well as post-incident decontamination of affected areas. Dekalb County Fire Department is the Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC) with which our emergency plan has been coordinated and verified.

Planned Changes to Improve Safety

Several developments and findings have resulted from the implementation of the various elements of our

accidental release prevention program. Continued training, and program reviews are some of the major

steps we want to take to improve safety at our facility. These changes are expected to be implemented in a timely manner.

Prevention Program Description
Prevention Program Description

The Atlas Cold Storage hazardous material release Prevention Program is built on the OSHA Process Safety Management Standard for ammonia refrigeration systems. The first element in the safe function of ammonia refrigeration equipment is in the design itself. All components in the system were designed and installed in compliance with ANSI, ASHRE, ASME, Pressure Vessel Codes and all other applicable design safety standards in effect at the time of construction. In order for this system to function safely and effectively over a period of time, it must be properly maintained and monitored for system integrity and functional efficiency. Maintenance and monitoring is accomplished by employees trained to follow safe procedures when operating the equipment from normal start-up to running and emergency shut-down. Also built into the system are automated and manual safeguards that monitor and maintain pressures, temperatures, liquid levels and warning systems that alert operators to respond early to operational deviations before they become emergencies.

Operator training also includes participation in hazard analysis studies and emergency response procedures that permit hands-on practice in the use of personal protection equipment in an emergency scenario. The hazard analysis ("what-if") study helps operators and emergency responders understand how to evaluate and manage an emergency situation safely and effectively in order to mitigate the potential releases. Lock-out/tag-out procedures are very important for preventing further hazards around malfunctioning equipment or when making even minor repairs on the system.

Spill containment and clean-up training is important so that effects of a spill are minimized.

General employee training involves knowledge of ammonia hazards, warning systems and evacuation procedures.

Annual Internal Corporate Safety Audits include evaluations and recommendations for updating and improving the program.
