At Enseco, we believe in the "Culture of Zero Harm." Our operating activities can impact people, the environment, property and our assets; therefore we incorporate Total Loss Management Systems (TLM) throughout our business and operational processes. TLM serves as our overarching framework for the protection of the environment, health and safety performance, clear management expectations, and detailing employee responsibilities. In addition, TLM also serves as a mechanism for ongoing stewardship and continuous improvement through regularly scheduled audits and preventative maintenance.

Our belief and passion is that while there is risk inherent in our industry, our goals and focus will equate to "Zero Harm". Enseco strives to be an organization where internal and external learning and leadership, nurture the engagement and creativity of our staff to affect change. We believe that building these concepts into our existing business processes, communications, key messages, budget cycles, training plans, event management, and safety committee mandates will be the most important factors to achieving the "Culture of Zero Harm".

Enseco management, employees and contractors have made a strong statement about their commitment to improving the health and safety culture within this organization. Recently our Loss Prevention programs and systems where reviewed to determine how well they stood up to a set program criteria and auditing standards.  The process is still under review. Once complete the COR Certification will be issued by Alberta Employment and Immigration and co-signed by the Certifying Partner, Enform.

A successful loss prevention program has elements like hazard control, hazard assessment, policies and procedures, training and competency, work place checklist, inspections and emergency procedures. Having all these elements in the safety manual may mean our organization is safe on paper. However the performance of this program relies heavily on the safety culture and individual’s commitment. The EHS department would like to thank everyone; field staff, support staff and management for doing their part in building a safety culture that is proactively reducing material, equipment, environmental and personal loss.

In an effort to improve the evaluation of hazard ID’s, field checklists, journey management cards and site inspections, the EHS department has tracked these documents. I would like to focus on the Hazard ID and note that the quality of reported Hazards submitted has improved substantially. Between July and Sept a total of 541 Cards were reviewed by management, EHS Department and in some cases Oil Companies. The Hazard ID’s are a process for identifying, quantifying and controlling hazards and risks in the workplace. They are intended to ensure safe reliable operations and when utilized properly can help in reducing material, equipment, environmental and personal loss.  The EHS department chose the top Hazard ID reports and pooled them together then randomly selected three. Let’s congratulate Tyler Vandale, Bob McKenzie and Matt Mitrega for helping do their part in Loss Prevention. All three employees will receive a gift card from their local Manager or EHS Department.

A few things we can focus on in the upcoming months are:

  • Continue to follow all standards defined by our Safety Management Systems and Processes
  • Report immediately any conditions or practices you think might cause injury to employees or damage to equipment.
  • Whenever you or the equipment you operate is involved in an incident, regardless how minor, report it immediately to you supervisor, manager and or EHS department.

What is COR anyway? In order to recognize employers who have developed a health and safety management system that meets established standards, a Certificate of Recognition (COR) is awarded. The Alberta government does not directly administer the COR audits or audit criteria...read more >
