    • Background YTD 2010 – 566 hand injuries in Shell worldwide, including 65 MTCs and 13 RWCs In Wells, Hand Injuries accounted for 43% of total hand injuries for the year (83 incidents in total) Most, if not all of these incidents could have been prevented. There has been 10 Recordable hand Injuries in 2011 in just over 2 months 2011 Deep Basin / Foothills Hand Injuries Prevention Campaign goals:  Educate employees on hand injury hazards and barriers to prevent injuries – focus on hand placement and proper PPE.  Engage employees to observe Shell and Contractors requirements and keep their minds on the task at hand.  Stimulate dialogue on better ways to prevent hand injuries.

    • VERSATILITYOur hands are very versatile and so we use them in almosteverything we do.We use them in many areas that are dangerous. Where do you use yours? Hand Safety Restricted 5
    • TongsPinch points Knives, sharp objects Elevators Chemicals Hand Safety Restricted 6
    • HANDS ARE EXPOSED TO MANY FORMS OF INJURY• Cuts on/from sharp objects (threads, knives, edges on covers)• Smashing (handling rig tongs, hammer spanners, elevators latching on stump)• Pinching (NU BOP’s, stabbing pipe)• Moving Machinery (power tools) - insufficient guarding, high speed operation• Contact with heat or cold (hot mud, engine exhausts, tools in sun, ice)• Contact with chemicals (caustic) Hand Safety Restricted 7
    • So how big is the problem? ... Hand Safety Restricted 8
    • HOW DO HAND INJURIES HAPPEN?• The analysis of how hand and finger injuries happens shows the most common as: - Being hit by moving objects, or - Hitting objects with part of body Hand Safety Restricted 9
    • WHY DO HAND INJURIES HAPPEN?The primary root causes identified for hand and finger injuries are: • Inattention or lack of focus • Inadequate assessment of risk • Cutting corners / rushing. Mistaken priorities - safety versus objectives. • Lifting / applying force incorrectly • Using the incorrect tool for the job Hand Safety Restricted 10
    • WHY DO HAND INJURIES HAPPEN? Even when people seem to know of the existence of these dangers, hand and finger injuries still happen. ??? WHY ???“It won’t happen to me!”“I have been doing it that way for years!!”“There isn’t a better way.”“It is faster this way.” and more … Hand Safety Restricted 11
    • WHAT IS THE KEY TO PREVENTION?• UNDERSTAND the task you are about to start. If you have any doubts, ask questions.• Be aware of all the possible hazards, assess the risk and then control them – it will help save you a lot of potential pain.• THINK for yourself if the procedure for the task is correct and the best practice.• FEEDBACK to your work mates, friends and managers your discoveries. You might just save someone elses finger. Hand Safety Restricted 12
    • What is the Key to Prevention? !!! YOU !!! Hand Safety Restricted 13
    • But whatever you do, whatever the tools,you must Identify and Control ALL hazards TSF DTL HAZID Hand Safety Restricted 14
    • WHAT CAN WE DO?Increase Hand Awareness During Normal Safety Activities: • Stop Process • Pre-tour/Pre-job Meetings • Job Safety Analyses • Hazard and Behaviour Identification and Reporting • Standard Procedures TSF DTL HAZID • Permit to Work Hand Safety Restricted 15
    • STOP PROCESS1st Level of Control  Stop and think  Observe the work area and surroundings  Step through in your mind what you are going to do  Think about what else is happening in the area or nearby  Identify the hazards (especially look for hand hazards)  Ask yourself the question "How can I control the hazards?"  Satisfy yourself that the hazard is controlled before starting work, if you can’t, or you have doubts, TSF DTL HAZID You may need to do a JSA Hand Safety Restricted 16
    • “PAUSE”  Ask yourself what if:  The wrench or the knife slips? Is there anything I can hit? Can I cut myself on anything?  There is something in this hole? This liquid is harmful to my skin or body?  I get contacted by heat? DTL HAZID TSF Ask yourself “What else can happen?” Hand Safety Restricted 17
    • TAILGATE MEETINGS• Raise awareness of hazards - Discuss the days jobs - Discuss potential hand hazards - Ask if anyone knows of any “gotcha’s”• Encourage investing the time to think through a job• Ask if anyone identified any hazards during the previous days work• Share information on plans to control hazards with others in the TSF DTL HAZID group Hand Safety Restricted 18
    • JOB SAFETY ANALYSIS• Planning tool• Most effective if the people doing the work, do the analysis• Highly recommended for Higher Risk activities• Highly recommended for jobs out of the ordinary• Incorporate Hand Injury Potential - Effects of Chemicals - Crush and Pinch Points - Cuts and Abrasions TSF DTL HAZID - Thermal (Heat, Cold) Hand Safety Restricted 19
    • HAZARD & BEHAVIOR IDENTIFICATION AND REPORTING• Incorporate Hand Behaviors and Potential Hand Hazards in your observations • For example: - Correct use of PPE - Damaged Tools - Correct Use of Tools• If you see a hazard, fix it if you can, if not report it and arrange for it to be fixed• If you see an unsafe behavior, stop it and TSF DTL HAZIDthen discuss it, report it (no names, no blame) Hand Safety Restricted 20
    • HAND PROTECTION• Be alert to potential hand hazards before an accident can happen .• Be alert to possible unguarded pinch points.• Always use push-sticks, guards, shields, and other protective devices when appropriate. Do not remove guards.• Use brushes to wipe away debris.• Inspect equipment and machinery before and after tasks to make sure that it is in good operating condition.• Disconnect power and follow established lock-out procedures before repairing or cleaning machinery. TSF DTL HAZID Hand Safety Restricted 21
    • HAND PROTECTION• Never wear gloves, jewelry, or loose clothing when working with moving machine parts.• Use the appropriate personal protective equipment--gloves, guards, forearm cuffs, barrier creams--for the specific task you are performing.• When wearing gloves, be sure they fit properly and are rated for the specific task you are performing.• Select tools designed to keep wrists straight to help avoid TSF DTL HAZID repetitive motion/overuse problems. Hand Safety Restricted 22
    • OTHERS• Standard Operating Procedures - Identify and include controls developed for the hazards (including hand hazards) - Pause should be used at all times• Permit to Work, JSA and any other Pre-job Planning - Identify and discuss potential hand hazards and controls TSF DTL HAZID Hand Safety Restricted 23
    • OTHERS• Make more use of Alerts, Bulletins, Signs, Stickers, Color Coding to highlight hazards• During orientations emphasise the issues relating to potential hand injury, and reinforce this with: - The Buddy System - Any training• Effectively communicate any lessons learned from other TSF DTL HAZID locations / incidents / hazards Hand Safety Restricted 24
    • CAN I MAKE A DIFFERENCE?Yes – This is just one thing that you can do to make apossibly hazardous piece ofequipment less of a hazard by making pinch pointsmore visible and fitting soft grips to cushion any impact. TSF DTL HAZID Hand Safety Restricted 25

Each worker was standing at oppositeends of the collar. They were attempting to align the collar on the pipe rack so that the collar would pass by an adjacent manifold building.The injured person (IP) was rolling the pipe toward the catwalk using his shoulder to gain momentum with his hand on the pipe rack. Thecollar unexpectedly shifted back toward the IP, pinching his finger between the pipe rack and collar. This caused a laceration to his finger.The IP received 14 stitches to the left pinky finger and returned to work. Preliminary Information Points:  Prior to starting work, the workers reviewed the JSA for laying down drill collars.  The JSA does not address the associated Manifold building hazards of manually rolling pipe on pipe Catwalk racks, such as incorrect body position and specific pinch points.  The manifold building is close to the pipe rack and interferes with pipe movement if pipe is not aligned correctly on the rack.  The worker did not recognise the hazard of body position and pinch points.Injured  Emergency Response Procedures werePerson effective in getting the IP proper and timely medical treatment.
