Anthony Mogg's insight:

Len the Derrickman is exposed to many dangerous chemicals and in the past they may have contained Asbestos. Given the risks involved with handling such chemicals, Len must understand how to protect himself from these chemicals, what the potential injuries are and how to treat these injuries. This information is contained in Safety Data Sheets, which are available for all chemicals on a rig. Reading the SDS prior to using the chemicals ensures that a quick response can occur if something goes wrong.

Sunscreen: Why You Need It and How To Use It

For decades, people worshipped the sun without giving much thought to anything other than not only how good the warm sun felt on their bodies, but how the rays of that sun enhanced the look of their skin with rich, deep tones. Unfortunately, while we were all busy coveting that brilliant ball in the sky, many of us didn’t realize the harmful effects that the sun’s ultraviolet rays could have on our skin. Well, now most of us know better and we realize that sitting or playing out in the sun without first applying sunscreen for protection is not the smartest thing to do. In fact, what studies have found is that it only takes fifteen minutes of unprotected sun exposure for those UV rays to start causing...

Anthony Mogg's insight:

For Len the Derrickman, the use of sunscreen is important.  Over a two week hitch, Len will spend a minimum of 6 hours everyday in direct sunlight. Len understands the risks associated with exposure to U.V radiation. Along with an extended brim for his hard hat and long sleeve shirt, sunscreen ensures that the impact of the sun is limited. Understanding when to apply and reapply sunscreen, ensures that it works to protect Len as it was designed.

Former BP America President reveals that BP knew about the risk of explosion at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig before it happened and could have prevented it.

Anthony Mogg's insight:

For Len the Derrickman, it is important to identify all potential hazards. The identification process works best when it is completed with a team of people across different experience levels. Once these hazards have been identified, adequate controls must be put in place. This ensures that risks to people, the environment and equipment is as low as reasonably practicable.

The Fit 5: Hydration for Athletes | Oil & Gas OHS | Scoop.it
Our fitness expert answers your questions about the importance of proper hydration for athletes.
Anthony Mogg's insight:

Whilst by no means an athlete, Len the Derrickman understands how vital keeping hydrated is. So as to not get caught out by a sudden change in the weather, Len knows to drinks approximately 200ml every 15min whilst on tour. Further to this his team records when they eat, drink and urinate. Urine charts are also posted in each bathroom, so that Len understands what the colour of his urine means.  Dehydration can be life threatening, so it's important that each member of Len's team look out for themselves and each other.

Via Adam Wake
Anthony Mogg's insight:

For Len the Derrickman, the use of gloves is very important. In his role, Len requires the use of two different types of gloves. For his general duties whilst on the mud tanks, he is best protected by gloves that provide protection against the impact of pinch points. When opening grates or moving levers on the mud tanks, Len's hands and fingers are at risk of injury. Gloves with impact protection can be the difference between bruising or stitches. When in the mixing room with large volumes of chemicals, Len is best to wear PVC gloves. These gloves when used with other PPE, are used to ensure that chemicals such as caustic soda do not come into contact with the skin. Two very different hazards required different PPE, showing that using the correct PPE is important in reducing risks.

Psych Central News: Traumas May Have Immediate Impact on Kids’ Health

Psych Central News: Traumas May Have Immediate Impact on Kids’ Health | Oil & Gas OHS | Scoop.it

"Children who have experienced three or more stressful events are six times more likely to suffer from a mental, physical, or learning disorder than children who have never faced a traumatic experience, and these health problems may take hold immediately, according to a University of Florida study."

Investigators analyzed data from the National Survey for Child Health, which includes information on nearly 96,000 children across the United States. The survey queried parents about a number  of adverse experiences their children faced, including parental divorce, economic hardship, exposure to domestic and neighborhood violence, poor caregiver mental health, exposure to drug abuse, and having an incarcerated parent.  The parents also reported on any conditions their children had.


This report on Psychcentral.com says that, "Between 11 and 24 percent of parents reported their children had been diagnosed with at least one disorder. About four percent said their children had at least one disorder from all three categories — mental, learning, and physical."


The authors of the study speculated that the high incidence disorders among stressed children could be caused by changes in the neuroendocrine and immune systems of affected children, although the study could not prove that the negative experience caused the health problems to occur.

Jose's curator insight, March 20, 2014 12:57 PM

When reading this article i found a lot of things interesting. One of which was that a child can be easily dramatized or can develop disorders way before doctors ever expected. Findings have found that children's lives can be effected at very young rather than when they become adults. Such problems like "  parental divorce, economic hardship, exposure to domestic and neighborhood violence, poor caregiver mental health, exposure to drug abuse, and having a parent in jail." As many can see there are plenty or variables that can cause these kids to be traumatized. Because there is no obvious cure, we as the people should take in consideration and act in a way where a child can only prosper from our behaviors.
