For a litttle safety in the patch and its number two incident problem
Well on top of the training best practice book on driving safer in alberta---who know with a little PR and email info this could prove to assist in reducing traffic accidents in both rural and urban areas, plus with elearning feature they can do it on there own time

http://employment.alberta.ca/documents/WHS/WHS-WSA-driving-for-work...

We now have a elearning program that teaches people the hazards and interaction for operations, plus the new distracted driver laws it came out at the same time
http://employment.alberta.ca/whs/learning/roadsafety/HazardAssessme...

or for any other elearning items I think the note to truck drivers and regular size wheels was a plus

From the world of OSHA this Morning Nov 30
A interesting read in safety
Drilling consultant company greatly improves workplace safety through OSHA's free On-site Consultation Program
Dawson Geophysical contacted OSHA's On-site Consultation Program in 2008 to determine if the Health, Safety, Security, and Environmental Management System it had instituted was in need of improvements to better eliminate, reduce or isolate workplace hazards. Dawson, which provides seismic studies to oil and gas drilling operations, requested that the Texas On-site Consultation Program conduct a compliance audit of the company's health and safety management system at its Midland, Texas, field office and maintenance facility.
The consultant conducted a walkthrough of the facility to assist with hazard identification, recommend corrective measures, and provide guidance on OSHA standards. For example, the consultant provided guidance on identifying electrical hazards and suggested locations for emergency eyewash stations. The consultant also evaluated Dawson's health and safety management system and provided recommendations for improvement. After implementing the consultant's recommendations, Dawson's Midland facility was accepted into OSHA's Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program. SHARP recognizes small business employers who operate an exemplary safety and health management system.

Here is the other number two problem we all ignore bottom line its two things one its against the law never mind the oceans of written safety policy and drug testing rules
The second is its christmas, eatting drinking and having a great time with friends and clients
So let me ask you what is your company doing other than policy to prevent drinking and driving, more injuries in the patch are noted for driving to and from the site than being crushed or injured in a oil patch work site
Alberta also has a 186 page brand new education book on best practices for driving to work we talk a mean page in safety we write a great book
But really would you drop a dime to save a life drinking and driving is crime clean and simple

What types of "spills" are most common in your industry? Are they on a small scale, or rather large?

Legislation to regulate Haynesville Shale Drilling

Legislation to regulate Haynesville Shale Drilling


By Fred Childers - bio|email

KEITHVILLE, LA (KSLA) - Congressman John Fleming, while touring a drill site, gets about as close as a person can get to what's called hydraulic fracturing, a process of releasing natural gas from the Haynesville Shale.

"Congressman Fleming wanted to become more educated about the actual work activity that takes place around a Haynesville rig," said Kevin McCotter with Chesapeake.

Fleming opposes upcoming legislation that he says would over- regulate the process.

What it is, it's a safe drinking water act, which already exists, and has existed for some time, but it was to regulate drinking water not to regulate drilling for natural gas," said Congressman Fleming.

Proponents of the legislation want to protect the aquifer's that these lines pass through.

But Fleming says that protection already exists, and the more regulations means higher costs to the drillers.

"All we would do is add more cost not really to the company, to the consumer," said Fleming.

In the 20 years that Chesapeake has been in business they've put literally miles of feet of drill pipe into the ground, the company argues that it hasn't had one incident of contaminated water through this process, and what's more, officials say state regulations keep the company in check.

"The agencies at the state which include the Department of Transportation and Development, the Department of Environmental Quality, and the Department of Natural Resources are all agencies that regulate every bit of our operation in the state," said McCotter.

"There are 12 people just in North Louisiana alone who inspect and make sure all those procedures are properly followed," said Fleming.

The bill, if passed, would repeal the exemption for hydraulic fracturing in the Safe Drinking Water Act.

April 24, 2014 from 10am to 12pm
Overview : Workplace homicide, mass murderers, "going postal,"disgruntled worker, threat assessment, zero tolerance policies… beginning in the mid-1980s, these terms entered our cultural lexicon. Initially, HR professionals along with others in the workplace were left flatfooted with respect to responding. Yet by the early 1990s, policy development, training, consultation, and assessments were part of HRM.  Since then, workplace homicides have dropped by more than 30-50% in the last 20 years.…See More
