Jones Pipeline Services, LLC has in place extensive policies, procedures, and incentives all designed to provide a safe and healthy work environment for all of our employees, subcontractors, and customers. What follows here is a general discussion and details on the Jones Team’s Zero Incident Safety Program and a site specific accident prevention, health and safety plan.
Our goal on every job is Zero Incidents - to ensure that all work is completed safely, with appropriate tools, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Safety and Health Requirements Manual (EM 385-1-1) and in accordance to industry safety requirements. Any task that the HSE Manager, or his designee, observes being performed in an unsafe manner, or without appropriate safety precautions, will be stopped until proper safety procedures can be instituted. Potential hazards are identified and systematically reduced or eliminated as much as possible. Environmental hazards are given extra consideration to verify that all dangerous procedures and materials are handled in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines. Every effort is made to substitute safe alternatives for potentially hazardous materials and methods. Jones will develop a Site Specific Safety Plan (SSSP) for our scope of work for the construction of the contingency yards, pipe unloading, transportation, off-loading and storage of pipe. The following key practices to meet our Zero Incident safety policy will be put into effect by the Jones Team for this subcontract:
Demonstrated Management Commitment
Staffing for safety
Pre-job Safety & Health planning – pre-project / pre-task/ Activity Hazard Analysis (AHAs)
Safety & Health Training and Education
Worker Involvement and Participation
Recognition and Rewards
Incident Reporting and Investigation
Drug and Alcohol Testing
The HSE Officer is responsible for certifying that all workers are aware of proper safety procedures. He/ she will conduct weekly safety training sessions to ensure that everyone understands the particular dangers and hazards of the work in progress and that all site workers are familiar with safe operation and handling of equipment and materials. We require that subcontractors maintain the same level of education with all employees on all jobs. Health and safety inspections are held regularly while a project is in progress. We publish and maintain a Site Specific Safety Plan (SSSP) for all of our employees and subcontractors for every project. The goals of the SSSP are to minimize risk of injury on the job, reduce property damage, and enforce compliance with all laws, codes, and guidelines. Our SSSP includes education in specific job-related tasks as well as general, continuing safety training. The plan outlines methods to detect, correct, and prevent unsafe practices and hazardous conditions. The plan also provides information in supplying and properly using protective equipment, safety mechanisms, and establishes a regular schedule for tool and equipment maintenance.
Potential hazards are identified and systematically reduced or eliminated as much as possible. Environmental hazards are given extra consideration to verify that all dangerous procedures and materials are handled in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines. Every effort is made to substitute safe alternatives for potentially hazardous materials and methods. When this is not possible, we make sure that only qualified personnel with previous experience and specific training are assigned to hazardous duty.
All subcontractors are also shown the location of all emergency equipment and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), telephones, and evacuation routes. Standards in the areas of housekeeping, protective safety equipment, weekly safety meetings, fire protection equipment, and treating, reporting, and investigating injuries is also outlined in the Jones Team’s SSSP. Also included are safe procedures for all types of construction activities by CSI category. The Jones Team’s SSSP is included as a compliance document with our Employee Handbook and as a referenced specification in all subcontracts.
Mandatory PPE: When on the project site, all workers and site personnel are required to wear the following mandatory Personal Protective Equipment (PPE); hard hats and leather safety toe shoes. This policy has reduced personnel injuries for employees.
Safety and Health Inspections General: The HSE Officer and Project Superintendent will conduct a comprehensive Daily Safety Inspection in accordance with Jones Team requirements. In addition, daily safety inspections are also performed to identify deficiencies, good practices, assess effectiveness of corrective actions and to observe work practices in the field. Areas examined during inspections include, but are not limited to, the following:
Overall site Conditions and Layout as it relates to Safety
Heavy Equipment Daily Inspections
Lock out / Tag out
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Pipe Hauling Trucks/ Trailers
The HSE Officer will advise the Project Manager, Superintendent, and Foremen of deficiencies noted during daily inspections. Deficiencies that are not corrected in short order shall be entered into a deficiency tracking system work crew foremen will inspect their work areas on a daily basis and correct observed safety deficiencies. Safety deficiencies that cannot be corrected with resources available to the foreman will be reported to the Superintendent or HSE Officer. Project staff, including engineers, quality control managers, equipment operators, truck drivers and general foreman, will observe and either correct or report safety deficiencies to the HSE Officer during visits to the job site.
