RJ MacLean believes that the only way to keep our employees, workplace, surrounding communities and environment safe is a dedicated commitment to 100% HSE and a zero tolerance to shortcuts or compromises. RJ MacLean adopts a “zero incident performance” culture.
It is through our people and subcontractors that we enact the implementation of RJ MacLean HSE Policy, identify and mitigate risks, and keep our work environment safe. Our people are the heart of our 100% safe workplace.
All RJ MacLean employees are empowered and obliged to intervene in any unsafe situations, address the issue, and ensure that our policies and procedures are followed. We make sure that we stay as one of the safest oil and gas service companies across North America. At RJ MacLean, we are proud that our Lost Time Injury Frequency (LTIF) rate is the lowest in the industry for the last three years.
In order for RJ MacLean to achieve a 100% HSE, it is a continuous and never-ending effort, where there is no room for complacency at work. By embracing, believing in and being accountable for 100% HSE, we make sure everyone goes home safe every day.
RJ MacLean's HSE Management framework manages all business risks in line with our established HSE policies, systems, procedures and guidelines. This safeguards integrity of our business, operations and processes, and is vital to ensure that we deliver what we promise our clients in a safe manner.
Key aspects of our HSE Program
Target Zero Cards: Target Zero Cards are used to report any hazardous conditions, safe or unsafe behaviours that may have been observed, as well ideas on ways to improve safety on our sites. These cards are filled out by the workers and reviewed by supervision and management.
Near Miss and Incident Reporting: Every near miss and incident that is reported is investigated fully. Through the findings of these investigations corrective actions are put in place to prevent the near miss or incident from occurring again in the future.
Project Safety Management Plans: These are developed specifically for each site and project we work on.
Field Level Hazard Assessments: Field Level Hazard Assessments, or FLHAs, assess the hazards of specific tasks and work areas and are to be completed prior to starting any work. They are a living document that can be changed throughout the shift when new tasks or hazards come up. These are reviewed and signed by everyone involved in the work or working in the area.
Worksite Inspections: Worksite inspections are an integral part of our safety program. They allow us to identify and correct potential hazards before they become an issue.
Toolbox Talks:Toolbox talks are held at the start of each shift. They are used to relay any important information to the workforce as well as discuss the scope of work for the shift. All workers, including sub-contractors, attend these talks and actively participate in the conversation that’s going on.
Weekly Safety Meetings: Weekly safety meetings are held on all of our work sites. These meetings are held to discuss any concerning trends that have been noticed, incident reviews, industry safety bulletins, and any deficiencies that were noted on recent site inspections. All employees and subcontractors attend these meetings.
