A Key Process to Ensure Compliance with Safety Commitments, HSEQ & Security PolicyTeekay is committed to achieving Operational Excellence and delivering flawless customer service using an integrated risk based approach to the management of Health, Safety, Environment, Quality and Security (HSEQ). ‘Operational Leadership – The Journey’ program was rolled out to fleet operations few years back to ensure compliance with Safety. It was proven to be a successful program to enhance Safety onboard the ships and in fleet teams. Since then, the program was introduced to other business units in our global offices. ‘Operational Leadership – The Journey’ is seen as a key process to ensure compliance with safety commitments, HSEQ & Security policy and to fulfill Teekay’s core values (SPIRIT) in all areas of our business. Upon joining Teekay all new hires from sea and shore obtain an introduction and training to the Operational Leadership handbook and six safety commitments. All employees, including the CEO and Leadership team, are required to sign the handbook as a commitment to being an Operational Leader. The Operational Leadership handbook does three things:
- It explains what Operational Leadership means – particularly with regard to safety – and what we and Teekay should expect from each other.
- It sets out the agreement that Teekay makes with employees when working for the Company.
- It asks everyone to sign a commitment to it – all of us, from board members to deckhands.
Safety CommitmentsOperational Leadership promotes active safety by keeping us all focused on all our responsibilities all the time. These responsibilities include our safety commitments:
|Risk Assessment & Use of Risk Tools||Permits||Lock Out Tag Out|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Drug and Alcohol Policy Compliance
