Marco Tavarez Institutes SWA


By: Mark Danos

Danos I&E Technician Marco Tavarez recently received recognition by customer XTO for his use of stop work authority (SWA). The customer stated:

Marco Tavarez issued a stop work authority on the JRU 36 Rambler SWD 1 today. From his experience he noticed that there was something not right happening on location when the transformer was being tested, and he shut down the crew until a subject matter expert arrived on location. XTO greatly appreciates his actions today to stop the work and bring it to XTO’s attention. There is a very real possibility that his actions today saved a life. XTO appreciates his fortitude and actions to keep everyone safe.  

-Kelly Miller, XTO construction foreman


Thank you, Marco, for your bias to action and commitment to safety!
