Every person on every Halliburton team is tasked with taking personal ownership of their own safety and looking out for others.
We start every meeting at Halliburton with a relevant safety moment. This prioritizes safety and sparks thinking and discussion about following safe practices in the workplace, job site, and beyond. These engaging discussions often lead to new safety moment ideas, which help protect our employees, customers, and their work environments.
Halliburton safety moments are popular within our company, in oil and gas, and in other industries. Explore our library and share these ideas with your teams to help keep more people safe.
Halliburton Life Rules, adopted from the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP), serve as categories for many of our safety moments. Safety moments that our hardworking employees have created that don’t correspond to a Life Rule are categorized as general safety moments.
When working with chemicals or dangerous equipment, following safety controls is imperative. To prevent injuries and reduce health risks, our employees must obtain authorization before overriding or disabling safety controls.
The confined space safety moments remind employees to exercise extreme caution when confined spaces are involved. Halliburton employees are trained to always have personal protective equipment, an exit strategy, and other procedures in place before obtaining authorization to enter a confined space.
Safety moments for driving help prevent accidents and keep our employees and those around them safe. We remind Halliburton employees to avoid becoming distracted or fatigued when behind the wheel and to be attentive when driving in school zones.
Many hazardous conditions can put employees in the line of fire if they are not handled properly. Line of fire safety moments provide guidelines needed to stay safe when securing loads, handling and lifting tubular equipment, using hand tools, and other common hazards.
Lifting equipment requires planning and situational awareness. Employees must follow specific instructions when working near a forklift, lifting heavy loads, and using lifting equipment. These safety moments help keep everyone near a lift and involved in lifting out of harm’s way.
A facility-issued permit to work is ideal for high-risk, non-routine jobs. Performing a risk assessment and acquiring an approved permit to work helps mitigate risks to our employees when they are grinding and welding or working in confined spaces where atmospheric and chemical hazards may exist.
Taking precautions when working at height is taken seriously to protect team members from life-threatening falls. These safety moments equip employees with reminders and information to prevent equipment malfunctions, choose the safest gear, and stay secure while working above ground level.
With safety as our top priority, we want people to come to work feeling prepared for any situation. General safety moments share best practices on how to stay safe while working in high temperatures and humidity. They also reinforce that we encourage every employee to help correct unsafe situations when they spot them.
