PPA Webinar Series: Propane Safety – During Your Busy Season Policies and Procedures are Critical
- February 6, 2018
9:00 am - 10:00 am
When a propane marketers is at their busiest that is when mistakes can happen.
A clearly defined set of Propane Safety Policies and Procedures are critical to ensure that all employees operate according to a consistent prearranged formula. The scope of written policies includes language to cover legal issues that may arise due to the nature of the business, employee health and welfare, especially in hazardous operational conditions, and/or ethical concerns that may put the organization or the employee in a position of conflict.
Procedures document the who, what, when and how of task performance. An individual procedure for a single task defines who is responsible for completion of the task, what steps are involved in the process, when each step is undertaken and how the progression of steps is performed to complete the procedure. The procedures manual, a collection of individual task procedures, forms the basic guiding document for the consistent completion of core responsibilities and is absolutely critical from a propane safety perspective. Attendees will learn fundamental techniques for creating and maintaining Policies and Procedures.
