Golden Safety Rules

Graham Marshall - Thursday, July 07, 2011
Over the years, various organizations and industry groups have looked to macro-analysis of incidents to capture the key lessons to learn for the prevention of fatalities.  BHP Billiton has come up with its Fatal Risk Protocols.  BP and Woodside both have Golden Safety Rules.  Shell has also established a set of Live Saving Rules aimed at preventing fatal accidents.

Below is a summary of key critical controls that will go a long way to preventing fatalities in the workplace and at home.

1.   Valid Permit to Work when required;

2.   Install and verify energy isolations when required;

3.   Ensure gas testing and monitoring when required;

4.   No entry to confined spaces without a risk assessment;

5.   No removal or disabling of safety critical equipment without a risk assessment;

6.   Appropriate fall arrest to be used for work at heights;

7.   No walking or working below suspended loads;

8.   No smoking outside designated areas;

9.   No alcohol or other drugs affecting work performance;

10. No use of mobile phone when operating vehicles;

11. Always wear your seatbelt in vehicles; and

12. Use Think 6, Look 6 for managing hazards in every task.

Following those rules will go a long way to making sure you go home to your family today.
