Of all the tasks in the petroleum industry, driving to and from a job site is what poses the biggest hazard to our workers. Safety is our number one priority and making sure our drivers and anyone sharing the road with them are safe is important to everyone at Grant PTS.
One way we try to manage this risk at Grant PTS is by equipping our vehicles with real time monitoring (RTM) systems. By using this we’re able to track all vehicles to monitor driver behaviour, ensure proper vehicle use, work breaks and safety.All Grant PTS vehicles, including ones that are leased and subcontracted, are equipped with RTM.
Before the advent of RTM systems, a company’s only method of combating unsafe driving habits was purely reactive. With RTM a company can now act quickly based on immediate data and manage Grant’s fleet effectively.
Trained and competent staff are essential to the success of any operation. To meet our training needs, Grant PTS University was created to provide training built from our Safe Work Practices, Standard Operating Procedures, Job Safety Analyses and the Safety Management System in entirety. Grant PTS University provides employees with knowledge specific to tasks completed and is not a “canned” training system!
The Optic System is based on a health and safety management framework that focuses on delivering information to help employees work safely. It’s a performance-based system which counts compliance as only one factor to consider. It allows for easy use and efficient accessibility to records, outstanding action tracking and reporting mechanisms.
A company is only as strong as its employees and with the highly cyclical nature of the oil and gas industry, it’s even more important for a competitive company to hire, train and retain a strong employee base. We’ve developed an in-house program aimed at new and inexperienced operators. It provides a base for certification in Well Test Supervisor Competency Program.
