Motor vehicle incidents, including driving-related fatalities, are one of the most pressing safety issues across the oil and gas industry. In an effort to decrease motor vehicle incidents and raise awareness, we have a Drive Safe team focused on safety initiatives related to safe driving. The Drive Safe team provides material such as a Drive Safe DVD, driver training objectives and a Drive Safe website.
In keeping with our Driver Distraction practice, we prohibit the use of a cell phone (both hand-held and hands-free) while driving either a company vehicle or a personal/rental vehicle on company business. Encana contractors driving a company vehicle or a personal/rental vehicle on company business must be aware of all distractions and minimize the risk to themselves, other workers and the general public. We all have a responsibility to our families and friends to drive with care and return home safely.
