Speak Up For SafetyStop Work Authority Presenter: TCO OELT Date: 28/11/06
Message from theGeneral Director - Tengizchevroil • Safety is about caring and watching out for one another. It's about taking ownership and accountability for our own safe behaviors. It’s about stepping up and speaking out when you see an unsafe act or condition. • “We want to build a culture in TCO where people feel compelled to speak up about hazards and safety opportunitieswithout fear of punishment”. • With Your Help………I truly believe it is possible to get to zero. Help us “STOP” accidents before they happen. • ……………….. Todd Levy
Why Stop Work Authority is Important • We don’t want anyone to get hurt • We want everyone to go home to their families and friends safe and uninjured. • We want to achieve an injury-free and healthy work place. • We believe in our Principles of Safety and Tenets of Operation • No one should ever get hurt • Think before you act • Always time to do it “Safely” • Do it Safely or not at all • When in doubt, find out (ask)
Stop Work Authority • When we see an unsafe act or condition we need to “STOP” it before – • Someone is hurt • There is a fire or a spill • Property is damaged, or business is interrupted • If you see an unsafe act or condition, • “YOU” OWN IT. • Who is “YOU”………. • Each and everyone of us. Management, Supervisors but most importantly every worker, contractor or staff. • We all have the authority to STOP WORK when necessary to prevent injuries and accidents from happening.
Let’s Review • Who has the authority to STOP WORK? • We All Do! • Who can STOP WORK? • I Can!
Stopping Work Can Be Quick and Easy Stopping work will prevent injuries if done correctly. It can be very quick and easy to do. For example: Stop! Notify Correct Resume • A worker was observed standing on top of the incinerator, removing scaffolding. The worker was wearing a harness, but did not tie off. • An employee noticed the hazard, stopped the work & asked the worker to come down. • The employee explained fall hazards and the rules in the safe practices manual. • The worker thanked the employee, and tied off when he resumed work, possibly avoiding injury. Incinerator

Should You Stop This Work? This pipe is being moved through a hole in the side of the ship. Look at the position of workers. Are they safe?
They Failed to Expect the Unexpected!! The lift failed and the pipe fell, leaving workers hanging on for life, or falling with the scaffold.
So What Went Wrong?? • In each case: • Safe work Practices and Procedures were not followed • Workers did not Operate in a Safe & Controlled Condition • Why?? • Workers did not recognize the Hazard. • Workers did not “STOP” the Work. • Who can STOP WORK?? • I Can!

Video--I Chose to Look the Other Way • Optional Slide & Video • This video is based on the popular safety poem by Don Merrell. It dramatically tells the story of an employee who failed to speak up when he saw a fellow employee engaging in an unsafe act. By choosing to look the other way, he allowed a preventable incident to occur which led to the death of his co-worker. • Videohttp://oe.tengizchevroil.com/Safety%20moments/Safety%20moments.htm • Discuss Learning points:
Video--I Chose to Look the Other Way • Optional Slide & Video • Important learning points: • When employees are willing to speak to co-workers about unsafe acts, injuries can be prevented. • Speaking up about unsafe acts can save lives and help develop a positive safety culture. • Speak up when you see a co-worker putting himself/herself in an unsafe situation, even if you think that the person’s response may be negative or unfriendly.
Remember … • STOP WORK when we observe unsafe acts or conditions. • “If you see it, you own it” - We all have the responsibility and authority to stop unsafe work. • Always comply with the Tenets of Operation. • Notify your work site supervisor of the work stoppage. • Assist with correcting the unsafe situation and resume work safely. • No one will be punished for stopping unsafe work. • “Zero Incidents” is an attainable goal.
Who can STOP WORK? • I Can!
