Goal Zero: Health & Safety Excellence
After a year of implementation, the “Goal Zero” program has improved performance through sharing of safety incident information and focusing on six data-driven areas, including:
- Heavy Equipment/Vehicle Operations
- Energy Isolation and Control
- Contractor Safety Management
- Hand Awareness and Safety
- Slips, Trips and Falls
- Dropped Objects
Goal Zero is supported by the use of assessments like the Valero Safety Assessment for Excellence (VSAFE), which looks at Management Commitment & Leadership, Employee Involvement, Contractor Safety Excellence, Occupational Safety and Health, Work Planning and Execution, Goal Zero Focus Areas, Emergency Preparedness and Training/Competency.
The assessment closely examines design and effectiveness in each area to help us reach our goal of safety excellence and zero injuries.
