INFORMATIVE SPEECH - Final Draft 4/16/2011
(1) Jonathan Cooper
(2) Oilrig Safety – confined space, sanitation, high voltage.
(3) To inform
(4) As a result of my presentation, my audience will be able describe three aspects of safety on an oil rig dealing with a confined space, the sanitation and high voltage principles that should be followed in order to maintain a safe environment.
(5) Start with a safety saying we had in the military “Watches, rings and shinny things”.
[pp: cover slide]
(6) Safety do people really need it I’m sure you don’t right? What does it really matter if you get zapped with 1,000 volts, you can live after that right? Wrong, wrong, wrong! In fact as little as 1 amp can kill.
(7) I care about safety becuase, one day I was trying to cut a short screw with a band saw and actually cut the corner off my pinky finger. This happened because I wasn’t being safe.
(9) I wish to point out what the people deal with while working within an oil rig environment.
(10) Today I will discuss the specifics on a confined space, sanitation and, high voltage and, the safety that they entail in an oil environment.
Close quarters to clean quarters!
Disease prevention to deadly dangers!
A. Arc flash
B. Voltage guidelines
C. Fire extinguisher
High voltage off switch!
Working in an environment whose surroundings promote mishaps to happen workers have to be diligent to stop them before they have a chance to happen. Workers have to know the dangers of a Confined space. Remember the buddy system and proper safety gear when going in to a confined space. High voltage has a mind of its own and can create a high danger area, safety is the key. Sanitation plays a major role in the overall well being of employees in order to prevent a diseased environment and keep oneself from getting sick. Dangers are present in any work place however in confined work stations like an oil rig the dangers can find people easily. This U-tube video showcases many high voltage arc flashes in different events this is to demonstrate how dangerous they can be.
