Danos’ Safety Management Tools Benefit All!


By: Nick LeBlanc

During pre-job hazard identification meetings for the I&E project at Shell Pipeline’s MCC facility in Houma, La., the customer asked to see a weekly behavior-based safety management (BBSM) report from all personnel on the job site. After discussing with I&E Operations Manager Shawn Portier, the team agreed to have Danos’ sub-contractor utilize our WATCH card platform to make it easier to generate weekly reports to our client.

The subcontractors picked up our WATCH card program and took off with it, exceeding our expectations by week one. For this specific project, the benefit is that we are able to track and trend our leading/lagging indicators on a weekly basis. This allows us to get in front of a negative trend for the week by discussing the topics during our morning safety meetings.
