Changes to the main gate parking lot

KEEP YOUR VEHICLE CLEAN: There are a lot of vehicles on site covered in mud. This causes poor visibility and can be very dangerous. Remember, it is the driver’s responsibility to ensure the vehicle’s windows, head lamps, tail lights, signal lights and vehicle identification information is clean. SANDBLASTING REMINDER: Please note that sandblasting activities are taking place on the Coker. Those who are conducting work in or around the area may be required to wear additional PPE including APR, mono-goggles or close fitting safety glasses with straps. BEWARE OF SLIPPERY SURFACES FROM SNOW AND ICE: In January 2014, 61% of all slip, trip and fall incidents resulted from ice/snow that created slippery walking surfaces. Remember, the current weather conditions are creating slippery walking surfaces so be careful when walking anywhere on site. Be aware of snow covered ice in your work area that could cause you to slip. Remember to give yourself additional time to get to your destination, wear proper footwear, use three-point contact when using stairs or ladders and pay attention to where you are walking. DON’T GET PINCHED: Each year, workers suffer numerous injuries that occur when body parts get caught or crushed between two objects or entangled with machinery. Typical pinch point injuries occur when workers aren’t aware of proper hand placement while conducting tasks such as work on flanges, torqueing of bolts or nuts, and constructing scaffold. You must recognize pinch point hazards and avoid them as part of your Field Level Risk Assessment (FLRA).
