Many of the operations or activities we perform on our facilities are complex and/or have the potential to release hazardous materials if they are not performed correctly. Step by step procedures are developed to perform these tasks safely and prevent unwanted or hazardous situations.
🔺 We use operating and maintenance procedures, even if we are familiar with the task.
🔺 We discuss the key steps within a critical procedure before starting it.
🔺 We pause before key steps and check readiness to progress.
🔺 We stop, inform supervision and avoid workarounds if procedures are missing, unclear, unsafe, or cannot be followed.
🔺 We take time to become familiar with, and practice, emergency procedures.
