Revised ATW and driver safety policies

BP Pipelines has recently revised two safety policies:

  • Authorization to Work (ATW)
  • Vehicle and Driver Safety

One notable change is that all contractors should limit daily working hours to 14, if driving on BP business. Otherwise, most of the modifications to both policies do not impact contractors. Do take some time to review the policy revisions and determine their applicability to your workforce.

What good looks like!

As an equipment operator moved a track hoe onsite to park it out of the way, the spotter stopped the operator prior to coming too close to overhead electrical wires. The equipment operator acknowledged the spotter's command and recognized the hazard. The operator was able to spin the machine 180 degrees to maximize the clearance distance between the track hoe boom and the overhead wires. The crew demonstrated good hazard recognition, good communication, good questioning attitude and mitigation skills. Great job crew!
