Once again, Jonathan has hurt himself. He fell down the stairs. You could have sworn he’s done this before – didn’t the guys on site call him “Lumpy” for a year after giving himself a welt on his forehead? – but there’s no time to figure that out right now. This fall was bad, and now you’re calling your HR department, telling someone onsite to drive Lump–uh, Jonathan–to the hospital, and wondering how much paperwork you have to fill out. Not to mention you’ll have to explain to your customer why production was paused and there’s potential to miss your deadline.
Jonathan has hurt himself before. Multiple times. He’s a klutz but maybe this time it wasn’t his fault. Ask anyone onsite and they’ll tell you how those stairs are always slicker than they should be and they’re moving quickly and don’t hold on to the handrail. Now you have a guy in the hospital, slowed production, and all of it could have been prevented. You didn’t utilize Behavioral Based Safety Observations.
Someone should have reported those slick stairs and added grips. What if you had a record of your employees not holding the handrail regularly? You could have made that part of your briefing this morning, maybe Jonathan would have thought twice, and this entire mess would not have happened.
BBS Observations reduce risk but you don’t have time to constantly make formal observations on employees. We get it. That’s why Wellsite Report makes BBS easy for you and available to anyone who has an account – even your lower-level employees. You can make observations in 60 seconds.
Let us walk you through why BBS Observations are crucial to your business and how BBS Observations work in Wellsite Report. Download our slides and begin creating a safer, better work environment.

While major international players can absorb financial losses resulting from multiple breakdowns, structural and environmental damage, and litigation, just one incident of incorrect operation or equipment failure can put an enterprising small oil or gas […]
Jodi Rell, who served as the 87th governor of Connecticut, said, “At the end of the day, the goals are simple: safety and security.” How very true. Yet while the goals may be simple, the means to achieve them can be complex and costly. The oil and gas industries require multiple insurances: general liability, […]
In a previous blog, we discussed pipeline safety and the main causes of pipeline leaks. While it did cite some statistics about spill incidents affecting U.S. waterways, the article focused more on leaks occurring at overland pipelines. Today’s focus is on offshore spills, specifically along the southern California coastline. What we know so far […]
