Graham Marshall - Thursday, June 16, 2011
Shell has established a set of Live Saving Rules aimed at preventing fatal accidents.

Below is a summary of the 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 very 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. Follow and appropriate Journey Management Plan.

Following those rules will go a long way to making sure you go home to your family today but remember to also always use the Think 6, Look 6 for managing hazards in every task you perform.
