Our Safety Management System is in place with safety standards, the sentinel event process, the global call to action process and other tools to help drive a safe environment — but none of this works unless each one of us makes safety personal.
- Everyone owns safety.
- From ensuring we are taking the right precautions and using the right safety gear, to identifying hazards in our area AND speaking up if we see an unsafe situation or behavior.
- We are all accountable.
- This includes stopping team members and helping them if you think they are not being safe.
- “It’s not my place to say something” is never the right answer when it comes to safety.
- If you see a safety hazard and do not act or speak up, then you are part of the problem.
We need to Live Values that Return People Home Safely. Every PERSON. Every SITE. Every DAY.
- Ask yourself at the start of every shift: what can harm me or others at our site?
- Speak up and voice your concerns through the safety reporting process.
- Set the tone for others around you by talking about safety, the hazards and problem solving. If you are not sure how to do that, ask yourself:
- Do I view safety as a personal responsibility, shared by all, but modeled by me?
- Do I stop and take two minutes to assess a task before starting the work?
- Do I stop someone if they are walking and talking on a cell phone or not wearing proper safety protection?
- Do I try to walk in someone else’s shoes and understand how they could be injured or killed?
- Do I speak up when I’m concerned?
- There is no job, repair or task that is worth your life or the life of another team member.
We owe it to our families, friends, and team to ensure that we all return home safely after every shift.
