  • The intent of this assessment is to provide the job-site or facility observer a documented guide to review the areas of focus outlined below. The areas of focus during a job-site or facility observation; however are not just limited to the focus items outlined and the observer shall use their best judgment in deciding whether observed items of concern require immediate action or can be listed in the comments section for EHS follow-up. Positive recognitions are also a portion of such assessments and shall also be listed in the comments section. Any item listed unsatisfactory will require follow-up actions and the Person-In-Charge shall be prepared to acknowledge with a plan of improvement(s). Such items, dependent on their severity shall be identified with improvement expectation dates as well. Safety Mindset: Unsafe Condition leads to an Unsafe Act which can result into a Near-Miss or worse an Accident!

2.0 P.A.L.S. is an acronym for (PERFORMANCE, ACCOUNTABILITY, LIFE, & SYSTEMS = Safe and Sustainable). The program influences safe behavior alignment by the use of (14) icons and written guidance that correlates to all EHS Manual programs. “Core rules are/ were determined based off constant hazards; Supplementary Rules are/ were determined based off contextual hazards”.

  • Core Rules: Based on observance is compliance being achieved for all CORE Rules<br> 1. Confined Space<br>2. Heights (Working/ Ascending and Descending)<br>3. Safe Lifting Practices/ Suspended Loads (Line of Fire)<br>4. Transportation (Operator Shall-Plan Trips, Obey Laws and Cellular Usage is Prohibited)<br>5. Permitting Systems (Working and Regulating Requirements)<br>6. Energy Isolation
