EDC taps personnel to conduct safety trainingThe Health, Environment and Safety Group (HESG) of Energy Development Corporation (EDC) recently conducted a three-day safety training for Geosciences and Reservoir Engineering Group (GREG) personnel at One Corporate Centre in Pasig.
Instead of engaging a safety training organization, homegrown EDC personnel were tapped as speakers. The undertaking aimed to increase health and safety awareness among GREG personnel who will be assigned to explorations, Fluid Collection and Recovery System or FCRS activities and laboratory operation.
The training also introduced the participants to the HES standards and policies of EDC as well as obtained feedback and input to improve or make more effective the existing HES policies related to GREG activities.
Topics discussed included foundations in health and safety/health and safety management system, health and safety plan or HASP, security orientation, incident reporting and investigation standard or IRIS, permit to work or PTW standard, control of workplace hazards, occupational health management, road transport safety, fire safety and control and hazardous substance safety.
