First up is to perform regular and appropriate maintenance on equipment and machinery. The equipment used in this industry is large and heavy, and if not properly maintained these pieces of machinery can become super hazards on the work site. Do the proper research to determine how often maintenance needs to happen and train your employees to recognize when attention needs to be given to machinery.
Second is to always make sure you’re planning ahead. One major way to accomplish this is by conduction periodic and thorough training on safety protocols for the workplace. Things go wrong or malfunction when we least expect it, so we must make sure that we and our employees are prepared to jump into action at a moment’s notice to help minimize potential injuries.
And finally, whenever you are engaged in a task, ensure that you are utilizing proper gloves and other personal protective equipment. While gloves cannot protect you from all of the hazards that occur in the gas and oil industry, correct use of them will help to eliminate minor injuries you may incur. You should look for work gloves that are well fitting and have a high level of cut resistance that will withstand a wide variety of tasks.
