WATCH Out for Snakes


By: Troy Gisclair

Thank you to Danos team member Blake Acosta at Chevron PMF for his recent near-miss WATCH card.

Earlier this month, Blake arrived at work and noticed a snake in the lobby. He notified the security guard on duty and then called his supervisor. He was informed of the customer’s proper procedure on how to safely remove the snake.

A pest control company arrived and laid out sticky traps for the snake. Once it was caught on the trap, it was safely removed from the facility and released without any harm.

Blake’s bias to action following the proper protocol to remove the snake ensured that no person (or critter) was harmed, and the customer was satisfied knowing he respected the recommended procedure. Great job, Blake!
