The holidays are upon us, which means that some folks in the oilfield will be celebrating and spending quality time with family and friends, while others will spend it working on the rig to provide for their families at home. This may be the first holiday season that new workers will experience spending the holidays away from their loved ones.
Due to holiday pressure and activities, there is an opportunity for minds to wander from the work being performed. While the risk of distractions is real, there are a few actions that can be taken to re-focus on work and ultimately reduce the risk of someone being injured.
To support this effort, Energy Workforce HSE Committee Member Micah Backlund, Helmerich & Payne, created this safety alert in cooperation with the Onshore Safety Alliance to provide a few reminders and tips on safety to share with your crews as we enter the holiday week. Download the safety alert.
Thank you for your hard work to provide efficient and responsible energy to the world. Your efforts to protect yourselves, your co-workers, and your families this holiday season make a difference. Wishing you and your families a safe holiday season and a happy New Year!
