One of the biggest challenges in the pipeline industry is introducing new operators to the job. Improved controls simplify the tasks of learning and training, but the machine is only part of the safety equation. Jobsite safety includes machine walk-around inspections, awareness of other people and machines in the area, and the conscious, consistent application of safety practices.
SAFETY.CAT.COM™ promotes environmental health and safety by offering free safety videos, safety toolbox talks and safety checklists. The site also provides online training to ensure pipeline employees are aware of and able to mitigate industry specific safety hazards – arriving Safely Home. Everyone. Every Day.™
