Every year, the Northern and Southern California Trihydro offices organize a Contractor Health & Safety Forum. The forums are intended to build our safety culture, improve relations with contractors and clients, and provide employees, clients, and contractors a platform for open safety discussions. The Forums allow our contractors and clients to gather in the same room and discuss upcoming client requirement changes, regulatory changes, and safety innovations. Typically, the forums last 1.5–2 hours with 3–4 presenters who discuss incident investigations/near-misses, stop works, project highlights, and other health and safety topics.
Last week, Trihydro was fortunate enough to corral Phil DeShazo, a retired refinery employee of 40+ years to discuss the safety changes he has seen throughout his career. Trihydro’s own Glenn Leong and John Carroll presented a local refinery project with 2 major stop works and the meeting closed with a roundtable discussion of routine versus non-routine work. Overall there were 30 attendees consisting of Trihydro staff, contractors, and employees from two major refineries.
Special thanks to Trihydro’s Courtney Keeney for her coordination of the event last week in northern California.
This meeting comes just one week after Trihydro was awarded Phillips 66 Safety Performance Recognition. Read more about that here.
