A typical day at work start with reviews of previous day's performance at tailgates meetings.Any near misses, omissions and commissions which had the potential of causing harm to life, equipment and environment are discussed. Management and Safety Coordinators facilitate the discussions, highlighting mandatory and important safety behavior and principles overlooked. They also inform all workers of likely hazards in the plants and the engineering and administrative measures taken to eliminate or mitigate the risks. , Safety Monitors, all workers and contractors attend tailgates safety meetings at the beginning of each shift work before their job related safety meetings, job safety assessments and field related hazards assessments and monitoring are conducted.
The hardest part of my job is when co-workers are frustrated, tired, under pressure or not being adequately equipped or competent enough to do the job safely. Under these conditions there is a tendency of taking shortcuts hence endangering oneself and others.
The most enjoyable part of the job is its application to all activities and behavioral attitudes in life. It is exciting to share healthy occupational life saving tips with others. The fact that there is no second chance in accidents makes safety very important and a collective concern – more... for all. – less
