PCS’s management and employees are 100% committed to “Goal Zero- Zero Incidents, Zero Injuries and Zero Spills.”
We believe that if one job can be successfully completed in adherence to “Goal Zero” then all jobs can be done Incident, Injury and Spill free.
Here are a few of the programs that we have in place to help drive the result of “Goal Zero”
1.) JSA Program
All of our tankermen complete a hand written Job Safety Analysis, both before the work starts and approximately 2 hours before the work ends. We do this to raise awareness of the potential hazards that exist on every job. These JSA’s are forwarded to our customers for review and use in their audits.
2.) SWA – (Stop Work Authority)
All of our tankermen have the right to use Stop Work Authority. It is written several times in our policies and procedures. We believe that SWA is not only a right, but it is an obligation to be used whenever the need arises on any job.
3.) Field Auditing Officer
We have a full-time designated auditor, whose sole purpose is to conduct different types of audits in the field. Some of the audits that are being performed are: PPE, Barge Inspections, Employees adherence to customers’ policies and procedures, Safety, Topping Off, Stripping procedures, Employees adherence to company policies and procedures, etc.
4.) Quarterly Safety Meetings and Weekly Safety topics
We currently have quarterly safety meetings with all employees in an effort to raise and maintain a high safety awareness. We also publish weekly safety topics to all employees.
5.) Intrinsically Safe/PTT Phones
All of our tankermen carry intrinsically safe/PTT phones. This provides our Customer Service Department the ability to maintain contact during every job and allows us to communicate the current status to our customers.
