Share your Safety Moments and save lives

By Jim Prestidge, vice president, HSE and Service Quality

Safety is everyone’s business. And for Halliburton, that business is what sets us apart from the competition.

It’s the credo that gives our clients the confidence to choose us for their sensitive operations, and it’s the culture that reassures our loved ones that we’ll do what it takes to return home safe from the field every day.

At Halliburton, every meeting – whether from the comfort of our conference rooms and offices or out on the field at one of our job sites – starts with a “Safety Moment.” We share real examples of what could go wrong and how to prevent it with our co-workers, confident that if the situation arises on the job, we’ll all know what to do.

Halliburton has made safety awareness our No. 1 priority for so long, it has become ingrained. Now, we’re ready to take the next step in our journey to ZERO; it’s time to encourage our colleagues to join us in our commitment to cultivating a safe work environment. After all, we know we’ve got their backs, but we need to be confident they’ve got ours, too.

That’s why the Company has launched a webpage dedicated to Health, Safety and Environment Safety Moments. It’s meant to be shared with our clients – both current and potential – and it’s meant to help keep our people and the environments in which we work healthy and safe.

There are currently four Safety Moments available on the site for viewing and downloading, but we know there are an infinite number still waiting to be shared.

That’s where you come in.

Halliburton would like you to share your Safety Moments with the world. Submit one valuable Moment or submit several – whatever will encourage others to live and work safely.

Safety Moments chosen for sharing on the webpage may also appear in advertisements Halliburton submits to industry trade magazines. Each will be placed into a PowerPoint slide that can easily be downloaded and incorporated into any presentation.

For every Safety Moment you submit that is chosen, you will receive a promotional item from the ZERO campaign (T-shirt, laptop skin, retractable badge clip, etc.) and, most importantly, name recognition with your published Safety Moment. But hurry, March 1 is the deadline to submit your ideas.

Submit your Safety Moments for consideration and remember, as a Halliburton employee you are tasked with your own safety and the safety of others. Share your Safety Moments and save lives. What could be simpler?
