Oil and Gas

Canada’s oil and natural gas industry’s top priority is the health and safety of employees, the public and the communities where they operate.

Finding and producing crude oil and natural gas can be very dangerous work. Canadians can be proud of an oil and gas industry that is constantly looking for ways to reduce hazards and ensure that every worker arrives home safe at the end of each work day.

However, between 2006 and 2014, traumatic blunt-force injuries were responsible for a large proportion of the 86 recorded worker fatalities in the oil patch. Wherever there is heavy machinery at work there is a special set of dangers, and backhoes, excavators, conveyor belts and haul trucks are still responsible for a large share of vehicular deaths in the oil patch. From skills shortages and evolving drilling techniques, to the different types of hydrocarbons and the unpredictable behavior of new reservoirs, there are many risks to consider in keeping your workers safe.

In safety, there is no shortage of essential hands-on work: conducting inspections, providing training and orientations, investigating incidents and injuries, and generating endless reports. With over 500,000 employees in the oil and gas industry, safety professionals need to stay focused on the workers at their work, and let ABCanada take care of their HSE program needs.

We can help.

We have a long history of working with the oil and gas industry and have created a significant number of policies, practices, procedures and forms specifically for oil and gas companies.

Health and safety regulations are always changing, which makes it difficult for you, your workers and subcontractors to keep up to date and have certainty that you are always working within current rules. ABCanada is ready to help you keep everyone in your company on the same page for compliance so you can keep your worksites safe and projects on schedule.

Our software is user-friendly, cloud-based, and designed for end users. We can communicate industry and company changes to all your workers, whether they’re on-site or in the office. In order to assist oil and gas companies to meet their provincial and federal regulation needs, ABCanada provides a suite of policies, practices, procedures and forms within our cloud-based HSE Management System (LibraSystem O&G).

LibraSystem O&G also provides access to oil and gas specific documents that help companies manage oil and gas operational activities at the field level. These topics include Oil and Gas Operations (e.g., Chemicals, Equipment, Pipelines and Tools) and Drilling Completions and Workovers (e.g., Lease and Access Roads). These guidance documents can be used right off the shelf, or they can be modified to meet your company’s specific operational and worksite needs.

You’ll find our HSE Software full of relevant HSE policies, best practices, task-specific procedures, and forms.

They’re all based on industry best practices and regulated requirements, and we update them for you as requirements change. The content is practical and user-friendly; easy to search, review and print; and it can be quickly customized to meet your specific needs. By accessing and using ABCanada’s policies and procedures, oil and gas companies meet their commitments to safety management and ensure the protection of their workers and the environment.

Our programs are suitable for COR and SECOR certifications and have been reviewed extensively by industry registries such as ISNetworld, PICS/Avetta and ComplyWorks.

We always get a passing grade and would be happy to help you through the certification and review processes. Take a look at our HSE Registry Compliance and COR/SECOR Support Services as well as our HSE Consulting Services.

In addition to the information provided through LibraSystem O&G, ABCanada also provides companies with access to a comprehensive incident tracking and management system, ABCan-Track..

When incidents and near misses happen, our cloud-based system helps ensure that they won’t happen again!

Thankfully not every work-site incident is a catastrophe, and one of the best ways to prevent catastrophic incidents is to learn as much as you can from the smaller incidents and near misses happening on your worksites. Many companies are already using ABCan-Track to identify and track trends, document investigations, and root causes, and assign corrective actions and notifications to ensure a safer future at our worksites. Real-time communication between all members invested in a your company’s HSE program allows HSE managers and supervisors to keep track of HSE activities, goals, progress and problem areas.

Everyone should be able to work safe and get home safely at the end of the day.

We all know the financial costs of failing to provide for worker safety: fines, shutdowns, loss of confidence in the company, as well as myriad direct and indirect costs associated with injuries, equipment damage, environmental damage and production losses. We also know that a distressed economy doesn’t change the fact that companies are required by law to have and maintain programs that effectively protect their workers.
