Our workers are exposed to hazards every day. We want to improve awareness of these hazards and ensure that the correct behaviours are being applied to generate a culture of safety.
Everyone has their own programs to communicate key hazards and associated ‘life-saving’ behaviours or rules. A common life-saving program does not exist across our industry. Life-saving programs can be overwhelming and confusing.
Wild Desert used the Hazards & Habits Kit to communicate common hazards and the associated habits (i.e. ‘Life Saving Rules’) to our front-line workers on rig sites.
We distributed Hazards & Habits Kits across our rigs and camps. (6 kits: 4 rigs and 2 camps). The Kits were used at pre-tour meetings and Weekly Safety Meetings.
- Junior crew members experience in hazard identification was broadened.
- It was a great way to get experienced crew members to lead from the front and support their junior crew members.
- It promoted a group discussion on safety and safety culture (including “stop the job have a chat”) – including things that we can improve on.
- Sometimes the crew got focused on winning the game rather than the hazard/consequence.
- Crews became disinterested over a short period.
- We need to think about how to capture and follow up on the lessons learnt.
- Reception varies based on roll out and facilitation.
- It’s good for the inexperienced crew when senior members participate.
- Keep it relevant to operations being undertaken on-site.
- Instruct your field personnel on how to use the Kit - in accordance with company hazard control processes and tools.
