The current study intends to analyze and assess the environmental, Social & Occupational Health & Safety (ESOHS) Risk and Impact Assessment of 2x660MW Supercritical Coal Fire Power Plant Jamshoro. The ESOHS risk and impact assessment has been conducted noticing and ensuring the international standards and guidelines, including the International and National standers. International Finance Corporation (IFC) Performance Standards and the World Bank Environmental, Health, and Safety Guidelines and Sindh Environment protection agency, Pakistan environment protection agency and other international good practices (OSHA, ISO) The study has assessed the environment of the 2x660MW power plant in Jamshoro, including air pollution, noise pollution, thermal pollution, solid waste management, and wastewater to minimize the project's impact on the environment. The AQMS FPI station which is an air quality management system has been utilized to identify the values related to air assessment, whereas, for noise pollution, the data has been collected to identify the impact of noise pollution using the Noise meter model UT353/UT353BT Mini Sound Level Meters. Noted and observed values for environmental pollution and their assessment has been done using the Leopold scoring criteria scale to assess the impact of these factors. Additionally, Social assessment of the power plant has been conducted through both online (i.e., Google Form) and paper-based survey methods at different locations of the coal-fired power plant. In the social assessment, 139 workers participated in the survey, either individually or in groups, with 96 workers residing in ZEPL accommodation and 43 workers in the E-block accommodation. Moreover, during the construction phase of the 2*660MW coal-fired power plant in Jamshoro, a comprehensive Occupational Risk Assessment has been conducted to ensure the health and safety of workers. The assessment covered various areas such as Work at Height, Fire Safety, Heat Management, Confined Space, and others. A 5x5 Risk Matrix has been used to evaluate the severity and likelihood of identified risks, enabling effective safety measures and protocols to be implemented. Based on the assessements to finded gap of imolimantion and suggect sutable recommondations for the 2x660MW coal-fired power plant in Jamshoro have been provided. to mitigation all assess risk and impacte of power plant during construection.
