Field Level Hazard Assessment
The field level hazard assessment (FLHA) is a tool that supervisors and workers use to eliminate or minimize potential hazards, injury, and losses (to people, property, materials, or environment) at the worksite. It is used to identify hazards associated with work tasks and their controls on the day of the job and prior to starting the assigned work.
Personal Protective Equipment
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is equipment or clothing worn to minimize exposure to chemical hazards in the workplace.
PPE does not remove or reduce workplace hazards and does not replace effective engineering or administrative control methods such as substitution or ventilation. PPE is the last line of defense when the hazard cannot be removed or controlled adequately. Proper selection, use and care of the equipment are vital to provide the proper level of protection.
Our Oil & Gas workers go through H2S Alive training. The training is to prepare workers to recognize H2S (hydrogen sulfide) hazards and protect themselves, as well as perform a basic rescue during an H2S incident.
Hydrogen sulphide gas is toxic and deadly at very low concentrations. You cannot see it or rely on your sense of smell to detect it. MPLocates policy is to use a breathing apparatus when working in atmospheres that contain more than 10 ppm. H2S.
