Identifying and Mitigating a Safety Risk
In 2019, one of our well operators raised a concern when changing coalescent filters in a small, tight space that contained other pressurized equipment, into which he was supposed to back a trailer with a portable man lift. Even utilizing a spotter, he felt that backing a trailer into a small area around live equipment was too hazardous, and raised the point with management. The decision was then made to install permanent stairs and platforms at our filter locations to eliminate the need for trailers and man lifts altogether, improving the safety and ease of this process going forward.
