Safety Focus of Week May 13 - Undetected Ball Valve Failure

May 13, 2019

Below is a safety beacon from the CCPS from March 2019. It talks about not trusting valves for secure isolations for safety reasons. We have made an effort over the last few years to accomplish this by either replacing the valves with blinds or removing the line all together.

Safety Nugget Week of October 15 - Avoid a Potential Tire Blowout

Oct 16, 2018

Sometimes tire blowouts are unavoidable. However, there are some actions we can take to reduce the likelihood of the unfortunate event from taking place.
We recently had a strong cold front make its way through Oklahoma. As the temperature decreases, the air pressure in your tire decreases. With large temperature drops, a tire that was on the lower limit of being properly inflated at 80 °F will no longer be at 35 °F. An underinflated tire will experience more friction between the tire and the road leading to increased wear and potentially a blowout.
If you haven't already, check the tires on your family's vehicles at your next opportunity.

Safety Nugget week of August 15 - Corrosion Under Insulation

Aug 18, 2016

FRI is currently in the process of replacing the insulation at the unit. During the 2016 turnaround, we replaced the majority of the insulation on the ground level and first deck. Once the insulation was removed, there were several spots that displayed evidence of corrosion under insulation, or CUI, which resulted in several piping projects at the unit.

Safety Nugget Week of June 6 - Safe Car Practices

Jun 09, 2016

Vehicle incidents occur for a variety of reasons. Since starting with FRI I have noticed that several of us drive from the office to the testing facility several times a day. A couple of practices that I have learned from a previous company are performing a 360 degree inspection on your vehicle prior to entering and limiting the amount of times you have the back out of a parking spot.
