  • Take 5

    • Five Steps to Working

    Safely

    • I know the proper work procedures to do this job safely.

    • I have recognized, assessed, and controlled all hazards.

    • I know what could go wrong and have taken precautions to prevent injury.

    • I have communicated appropriately to customers and employees.

    • I am prepared to go to work and will complete this job safely.

  • Life Saving Rules

    • Rule #1: Eliminate and control potential sources of ignition.

    • Rule #2: Employees will take adequate measures to prevent cave-in or collapse of excavations.

    • Rule # 3: Prior to, and during entry into potentially gaseous atmospheres (excavations, vaults, confined spaces) employees will monitor oxygen levels and, if indicated, mitigate hazards or use respiratory protection equipment.

    • Rule # 4: Employees will wear seat belts while driving or riding in Company, rented or personal vehicles while on Company business, and anytime while operating a company vehicle or other motorized equipment where a seat belt is provided.

  • Joint Union & Management Committee

    • ACCOMPLISHMENTS: • Flame resistant hoods

    • Developed a policy that FR hood must be worn when working in a gaseous atmosphere

    • Collection of pipeline fluids

    • Developed a process using a 3 gallon can

    • Increased Communications

    • “Flash Notices” on injuries and MV Accidents

    • Increased office safety signage

    • Respirator Equipment at the shops

    • Non-Sparking Tools

  • Pre-Job Briefing

    • Plan how the job will be done.

    • Ensure everyone involved knows the sequence of actions

    and responsibilities of each team member.

    • Address potential hazards and steps necessary to work

    safely.

    • The pre-job briefing is an OSHA requirement! OSHA Regulation 1910.269(c)

    "Job briefing." The employer shall ensure that the employee in

    charge conducts a job briefing with the employees involved

    before they start each job. The briefing shall cover at least

    the following subjects: hazards associated with the job, work

    procedures involved, special precautions, energy source

    controls, and personal protective equipment requirements.

    The purpose of the Pre-Job Briefing is to:

  • Snap Decisions - When we do things without thinking at all, these are snap decisions, impulsive decisions; things we do spontaneously. Complacency - Referred to as the “silent killer”. We become content with the “routine” of our tasks and fail to recognize the hazards of our job. Shortcuts - We all take shortcuts at home and at work and we have different reasons for doing them. These reasons can be pressure from someone else, pressure on ourselves, trying to beat a deadline or trying to impress a supervisor. Regardless, the bottom line is that we are the only ones who know why we take them. Shortcuts can lead to performing a task unsafely.

  • Flame Resistant (FR) Clothing

  • • Each day workers in the utilities and gas industries work under conditions that may expose them to hazards that could cause severe or fatal burns.

    • Studies indicate that more than half of these injuries are the result of clothing that ignites and continues to burn.

    • It is the burning clothing, not the initial arc or flash, that causes the severity of burn injuries.

    Background

  • Section 1.9 of the Accident Prevention Manual outlines the requirements

    for Flame Resistant (FR clothing).

    Accident Prevention Manual

  • • Flame Resistant (FR clothing) is made of materials that resists burn through by inhibiting or resisting the spread of fire.

    • FR clothing offers temporary fire protection and there is a limited window available before heat is transferred through the material.

    Flame Resistant

  • • FR clothing must be worn whenever entering or nearing a gaseous or potentially gaseous atmosphere.

    • The Accident Prevention and SOP 360-19 (Personal Protective Equipment) outline specific instances in which FR clothing must be worn.

    Flame Resistant (FR Clothing)

  • • Clothing made of natural fiber (such as cotton, wool or silk)

    must be worn under FR clothing.

    • Clothing made of synthetic fabric such as acetate, polyester,

    nylon, and rayon, when exposed to flame can burn/melt

    through thus increasing the extent of an injury.

    Flame Resistant (FR Clothing)

  • • Plasticized logos that are heat-applied onto t-shirts and

    other garments worn under FR clothing may also affect the

    protection afforded by FR clothing.

    • Employees are not permitted to alter FR clothing; for

    example, removing or altering sleeves or hemming pants.
