18 Combating Fatigue Recommend good uninterrupted hours of sleep before starting a work shift Take scheduled work breaks Avoid substances and medicines that may affect your performance Do not over-extend to performing additional work If workload is high ask your supervisor for assistance

19 Combined Critical Behaviors
Surrounding conditions and situational awareness Nearly every task attempted has associated risks or hazards ABS employees in-the-field should be cognizant of unsafe staging or means of access Identify the steps needed to complete a task Pinpoint possible hazards for each step and take steps to mitigate risks

20 Patrolling & Walk Arounds
Be aware of your surroundings Unsafe staging or means of access, including ladders Unprotected openings Tripping or electrical hazards Poor housekeeping Improper confined space entry Other workers carrying out jobs Be aware of falling objects

21 Critical Behavior #1: Line of Fire
Exposure to energy sources (electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, etc.) Distracted driving is also a hazard related to this critical behavior

22 Avoiding Electrical Injuries
Verify appropriate Lock-out/Tag-out Use fiberglass ladders instead of metal ladders Beware of power lines when you work with ladders and scaffolding Mark entrances to restricted locations with visible warning signs

23 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Must be maintained, compliant and readily accessible Head protection – hard hats Hearing protection – ear plugs Face and eye protection – safety glasses Hand protection – gloves Foot protection – steel toe safety boots Leg protection – knee pads and shin guards Other Equipment and Tools Flashlight and torch (intrinsically safe) Multi-gas meter

24 Driver Safety Reduce your speed Maintain situational awareness
Back to Behaviors Driver Safety Reduce your speed Maintain situational awareness ABS personnel are not permitted to use cell phones while operating a vehicle for business Stay alert to your surroundings at all times Observe all rules of the road and keep attention to signs and speed limits

25 Critical Behavior #2: Eyes on Task
It is important to pay attention to the task at hand When you are not looking at what you are doing, you lose the ability to react to events, as they occur, which is your best defense against injury To reduce risk for accidents, stay focused on the task at hand, do one thing at a time and try to ignore distractions

26 Personnel Transfer to Vessels
Back to Behaviors Personnel Transfer to Vessels Complete a risk assessment briefing prior to the transfer activity Have lifesaving appliances ready for immediate use Know emergency recovery methods Have a crewmember present to assist Clear areas for embarking and/or disembarking

27 Critical Behavior #3: Eyes on Path
Keep your vision unobstructed when in motion and always be on the lookout for hazards in the path below, above or to the sides of you To avoid slips, trips and falls, look before you walk and make sure that your pathway is clear

28 Avoid Slips, Trips & Falls
Maintain good housekeeping Cleanup spills immediately Stow away tools or other equipment after use Discard and clear scraps and debris Coil-up any lines when not in use Report tripping hazards immediately

29 Back to Behaviors Keep Paths Clear Evacuation routes should be kept clear on worksites and at the office Emergency exits should never be blocked Lifesaving equipment should be readily accessible Equipment should not be stowed in aisles, hallways or stairwells

30 Critical Behavior #4: Pinch-Points
Pinch-points can occur anywhere a part of the body can get caught between two objects Never perform a task without proper training, by taking shortcuts, or bypassing procedures – the consequences could be serious

31 Aerial Lift Precautions
Back to Behaviors Aerial Lift Precautions Mobile Elevated Work Platforms Routinely maintain vehicles Lift controls need to be tested prior to starting any task Operators must be trained and qualified Work within basket – do not sit or climb on the rails Safety belt or harness must be used as a proper means of restraint

32 Critical Behavior #5: 3-Point Contact
Back to Behaviors Critical Behavior #5: 3-Point Contact The three-point contact system entails keeping three-points of contact Two hands and one foot or two feet and one hand at all times – on ladders, stairs or unstable and/or wet surfaces Wear proper footwear with good traction

33 Safety Summary Safety is paramount to our culture at work
Understand procedures and field safe practices Be mindful of safety in all that you do whether at work or home
