It is the policy of Quick N Quality Oilfield, to implement a systematic process for the identification and control of hazards. The process of identifying, assessing and controlling hazards will be done collectively with those on site. This includes Quick N Quality’s employees, as well as sub-contractors.
Quick N Quality will:
* The safety information in this policy does not take precedence over Occupational Health and Safety legislation. All employees should be familiar with the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
Hazard Assessment means identifying and then eliminating or controlling the safety hazards of a process, procedure or a work site to protect the health and safety of the employees involved and to prevent other losses.
Hazard Assessments must be done for jobs or work processes that:
Each job or work process must be considered to determine if inherent or introduced hazards exist or have the potential to develop, and the necessary control measures must be determined and applied.
1.1 Hazard Assessment Guidelines
Identify: Break down the job, procedure, or process into its tasks or components and identify all hazards associated with each task or component.
Eliminate: Plan to eliminate as many hazards as practicable. This is the best method of dealing with hazards, if it is possible to implement. If hazards are eliminated it is impossible for them to recur.
Control: Control the hazards that cannot be eliminated. If hazards are controlled instead of eliminated, they can recur. Control is the most common method of dealing with hazards or hazardous situations.
1.2 Hierarchy of Hazard Elimination and Control
An actual or potential hazard that is revealed through the hazard assessment must be eliminated or controlled through: eliminate or reduce exposure.
After hazards are identified controls must be put into place to eliminate (best) or reduce (least) the chance of an accident occurring. When controlling hazards follow the Hierarchy of Hazard Elimination and Control, start with the most effective controls then work down to the lowest form of control, personal protective equipment.
Hierarchy of Hazard Elimination and Control
1. Eliminate Hazards through design
2. Reduce hazards through substitution
· Incorporate engineering controls
· Apply administrative controls
· Provide Personal Protective Equipment
1.3 Safe Work Plans
A Safe Work Plan is a documented plan describing how to control hazards and manage risks for certain work. A Safe Work Plan is developed following a hazard assessment, and should ensure that hazards and risks are carefully evaluated, that the controls and contingencies are clearly identified, and that the necessary actions and implementation strategies have been outlined.
A Safe Work Plan must be developed when:
Safe Work Plans should be developed by the following method:
Safe Work Plan Content
Each Safe Work Plan must include all pertinent details and documentation relative to the activity, personnel and equipment involved. The following should be included and recorded:
Implementation of Safe Work Plans
Prior to the commencement of work, a Pre-Job Safety Instruction meeting must be conducted, chaired by the Safe Work Plan leader. Meeting attendees will include the work execution group and affected/affecting area personnel.
The Safe Work Plan Leader is responsible to give the authorization to proceed with the work once all requirements have been met.
Any need for deviation from the Safe Work Plan shall result in the activity being stopped and re-evaluation of the Safe Work Plan with re-approval and re-authorization required.
