Revised Work Permit

In the Maintenance of
Lago's fourth edition of the Work
Permit Manual went into effect May
30, 1977. The newly revised manual,
which supersedes all previous edi-
tions, covers the essential rules and
procedures for issuing work permits
for the safe performance of mecha-
nical work in the refinery.
The restyled booklet, presented in
a more systematic and simplified
form, is compatible with current ope-
rating and maintenance practices and
with actual organization structures.
Needless to say, the prime objective
of the manual is to develop and main-
tain high safety standards on the job
The updated manual was introduc-
ed during a series of training sessions
in the Mechanical Training Facilities
in the Laboratories from May 23 thru
this month. Attending the sessions
were supervisors and employees of
Mechanical and Process Department
and other Company personnel who
periodically deal with work permits.
Given in groups of twenty-five per-
sons each time, the two-hour sessions
covered the new rules and procedu-
res in the updated manual in a video-
tape presentation given by E. R. Sa-
fety Advisor Higinio Kelly. These
sessions will also be conducted for
contractor employees later this month.
The Work Permit system was initia-
ted about 1938. Since then, additions,
revisions and consolidations have
been made at various intervals, with

dell, Ruberd A. Barry, Omar R. Booi,
Edna L. Farro, Romulo Hernandez,
Bernhard A. Kalis, Victor A. Marval,
Antonio M. Nemecek, Ronald H. Pi-
nas and Charles A. Richardson.

Alfonso Steenen Becomes Senior Coordinator

Manual Serves as Tool

High Safety Standards
major revisions made in 1952, 1963
and 1967.
Stipulated rules and procedures in
the manual are based on many years
of experience both at Lago and other
refineries. Besides denoting clear
and precise instructions on prepara-
tions required and the proper mea-
sures to be taken prior to a specific
job, the manual also outlines the safe
use of a variety of equipment. At
the same time, it stresses the impor-
tance of shared responsibility of su-
pervisors and job leaders alike in
carrying out a job efficiently and sa-
