Safety is a huge issue in our business. Accidents are not good for our reputations and are costly. More than any other business, the oil and gas industry takes it seriously and provides education, plus takes action.
From "safety training" to "safety moments," we keep the issue of safety at the forefront of every day. But one area that may need to be reinforced is teaching people to speak up. All employees should feel empowered enough to say something if they see a threat to safety.
If you see someone performing a task in an unsafe manner, speak up or stop the action/work! It's not enough to maintain our own safety. The actions of others impact everyone.
