Don't jump in to help

Graham Marshall - Saturday, September 29, 2012

Shown below is a really good Safety Alert from Easternwell which highlights the issue that many incidents occur when people "jump in to help" without taking the time, slowing down, and running through the Think 6, Look 6 hazard management process in their heads before they apply their hands.


I really like this Safety Alert and congratulate Eastern Well for rasing concern about rushing-in, which we also see as a very big problem on sites where we're visiting.

As we always argue, the key to all incident prevention is to slow-down or temporarily stop, take a breather and apply the mental Think 6, Look 6 process to the task in order to identify the energy-hazards, potential triggers and the required controls.  That way everyone can get to go home safe.

Maybe Easternwell will start to promote this within their rig crews....
