President Cavallaro,
addressing the safety is-
sue at the four sessions
conducted for the Techni-
cal and Operations de-
partments.






"Ea I of us mist make a personal commitment to turn
tlc situation around, and work with much more
emphasis on sale and reliable operations." Those were
the words of Tony Cavallaro, Lago's General Manager,
at the recent Employee Safet\ Information Sessions held
at the Esso Club for the Technical and Operations
departments.
That resolute statement conveyed Lago Management's
concern for the long list of incidents that have occurred
during the latter part of 1983 and especially during
February and March of 1984. "Unless we stop this trend


immediately and take all actions necessary to change
course, we will soon run the risk of suffering a major
personnel injury, fatality, or operational disaster," said
Mr. Cavallaro.

Major and Minor Incidents
Bob Naugle, Manager of the Operations Department,
presented a long list of the serious and costly incidents
that occurred, together with some of those minor
incidents which had the potential of turning into major
disasters. During the past eight monhts, the refinery
suffered eight major incidents including a fire at the
coni. on page 2.


"Cada un di nos mester haci un compromise personal pa
trece cambio den e situation, y traha cu hopi mas enfasis
ariba operacionnan sigur y confiable". Esey tabata e
palabranan di Tony Cavallaro, Lago su General
Manager, na e Sesionnan Informativo di Seguridad pa
cont. on page 3.


A total of about 800 employees
attended the safety sessions.

dollars). The minor incidents included crane accidents.

One of the incidents discussed
involved the crane pictured
below.


could have been disastrous "with a little twist of fate, a
spark, some hydrocarbon nearby, or some other
situation," commented Mr. Naugle.

Causes of incidents
An investigating committee consisting of the division
superintendents of the Technical and Operations
departments and an ER&E engineer, undertook a study
reviewing the contributing factors of the recent major
incidents and those dating back to 1981. The committee


concluded that the most significant contributing factors
or basic causes are the following:

* inadequate procedures/guidelines or procedures not
followed
* lack of adequate planning, supervision, manpower
coverage and technical assistance
* in some cases, insufficient experience

According to the report, the most critical errors were
committed during startups/shutdowns and furnace
operations. Mr. Naugle expanded on each of the factors
and then discussed the plans intended lor improvement.

Safety performance
Mr. Cavallaro reviewed Lago's 1983 employee safety
performance and concluded that although a lot of
progress was made, the results are not yet satisfactory.
"When compared to the Exxon All Injury Index, our
record shows that our frequency% and severity of incidents
is double the Exxon average.
"The major disappointment in '83. however," he said.
"was in the area of reliable operations." 1983 saw nine
reportable fires or explosions versus two in 1982. The
frequency of these operational incidents in 1983 \\as
about three times higher than the Exxon average.

Safety concepts
"We don't want to leave any doubt in an\ bod nmind as
to the level of quality and excellence we expect from the
organization," said Mr. Cavallaro As someone once
said: Safety is ever one's responsibility. And the
concepts in the management ofsalfet at Lago reflct this.

* ALL injuries can be prevented
* Management. including first line supervisors and
technical stall, has the responsibility for preventing
personal injuries or operational incidents
*The employee must follow rules and procedures and
take his/her share of responsibility .

As Cavallaro mentioned at the beginning of the meeting.
the safety sessions will have achieved the objective to
improve safety and reliability, "if at the end of these
reviews we walk back into our jobs with a dileent
prospective than the one we had priol to this meeting
and with a strong determination to personally contribute
towards changing the present situation."


How did employees react to the sessions?


How did our employees react to the Safety Sessions? To
find this out, a questionnaire was distributed to a
random selection of our employees. Following are the
results of the questionnaire. A word of thanks goes to all
those employees who have cooperated.

Results
(hIwtemn- Did you know there were such a high number of
incidents in the refinery or did you find that out through
the sessions?
.irn, t' Knew before sessions: 11. Found out through
sessions: 15.

(ue#1ion: What was the point Management was trying to
make during the sessions?
.Ann, r. Employees should be more safety conscious: 11.
Management is interested in safety for
cost/reliability/profit: 8.


Others: Management is interested in safety lor humane
reasons; Management wanted to give information;
Safety is priority of Management; More discipline is
needed: Safety is everyone's responsibility.

t.>, /l Did you think it w as necessary\ useful to have
such a meeting?
I.n,, All said yes.

S, ,nin Are you more concerned about salety now that
you have attended the session?
i, ,n" More concerned now: 13
Remained the same: 13. (Eight of these said their
concern remained the same. because they were always
concerned about safety).

(Qr, 'n, Why, do you think, safety is of much
importance to Management? cool. on page 4.

ARUBA Eo NEW APRI 1984 i


Does medication buy you better health? Not necessarily.
Sometimes, medicine may actually harm instead of
improve your health. According to the U.S.A.'s Federal
Drug Agency Consumer Report, a major drug
problem in America stems from the misuse or excessive
use of medicines." To protect your health and prevent
accidents, you should know some facts about the effects
of medicine and the precautions you should take in its
regard.

OTC and Rx drugs
The two basic types of medicines are over-the-counter
drugs, which are those that can be bought without a
doctor's prescription, and prescription drugs (Rx).
OTC drugs are relatively safe when the directions on the


labels are followed. However, all medicines affect body
functions. Besides, one medicine can be safe for some
people and cause side effects in others. Thus, before
buying and using any OTC drugs, the directions and
warnings on the label should be read carefully. If you
suffer from different symptoms that require different
medicines, consult your doctor, as some medicines
cannot be taken together safely. And, of course, beware
of mixing medicine with alcohol.
Prescription drugs
Although you should not expect to receive medicine
everytime you go to the doctor, when you are prescribed
medicine, you should always get as much information as
possible about its side effects and the precautions you
should take. When and how often should you take it?
What reactions may occur (nausea, vomiting,
nervousness)? Should you take any precautions (drive a
car, operate machinery)? Should you take the medicine
until the supply is finished or until the symptoms
disappear? Can it be taken along with other medicine? A
simple instruction can prevent misuse or excessive use of
the drug.
Safety precautions
It is ironic that although most medicine is meant to
relieve pain in people, many times it results in pain and
sorrow, because the necessary precautions were not
taken. To avoid accidents, a few simple steps should be
followed:


* clean out your medical chest regularly: many drugs
lose or increase in strength with time. Also, if the doctor
takes you off a medicine, destroy what is left
immediately: do not save drugs, especially antibiotics,
for the next illness. Look for medication that has changed
color, formed residue, is crumbly or cloudy.
* Keep the label on the container for directions and
identification purposes.
* Do not use other people's drugs and do not let them
use yours. Different people react differently to the same
drug.
* Do not take medicine in the dark! Before you take any
medication make sure that what you have in your hand is
really what you want.







Nhedi, in, c t.,,




phoi mvt oin i 1







On picture: Paul Nicholson.
* Do not mix pills in one contain: some chemicals
react with others. Some neutralize others.
* Be sure you store medicines as directed- some labels
say to store in a cool place.

Precautions for liii: ;
Taking medicine not designed lor them, is one of the
major health and safety hazards for children As a matter
of fact, in the U.S.A., medicine is the cause lor more
accidental poisinings among children under five years of
age than any other chemical. Therefore. although it has
been said over and over again, it is worth repeating: store
all medicine and other dangerous chemicals out of
children's reach, lock the cabinets, close bottles properly,
and never leave medicine unguarded when answering
the phone or door. And, just as with adult medicine, do
not experiment with it. Always give your children the
dosage as directed.

Do vou realIl mt d it./
As vou can see. there are a lot of hazards connected with
medicines. So, before buying any medicine in a
drugstore, ask yourself: Do I really need it* Cannot time
and body itself do the healing? For instance, a good night
sleep may be all you need to relieve ever\ day tension; a
proper diet combined with a good exercise schedule is
more advisable than taking pills to reduce the appetite.
The good and natural way is not always the easy way,
but is not your health worth the effort?

cualquier remedi, sigura bo mes cu loke bo tin den bo

Precaucion pa Muchanan
Un di e peligronan principal pa salud y pa seguridad di
much ta ora cu nan ta tuma remedinan cu no ta trahA
pa nan. Ta un echo, cu na Estados Unidos remedi ta
causa mas venenamento accidental entire muchanan bao
di cinco afia cu cualquier otro product quimico. Ta
pesey, aunke cu ela wordo bisA asina hopi vez, e ta bal
repeticion: warda tur remedi y otro productonan
quimico peligroso na unda cu muchanan no por yega,
sera cabinetnan na yabi, sera botternan debidamente y
nunca laga remedi para sin vigilancia ora di contest
telefon ofatend6 hende na porta. Y mescos cu remedipa
adulto, no experimentA cune. Semper duna bojuinan e
dosis segun e direction.

En berdad bo tin mester di dje?
Manera bo ta mira. tin hopi peligro relacionA cu remedi.
Pesey, prome cu bo cumpra cualquier remedi na botica,
puntra bo mes: En berdad mi tin mester di dje? Tempo y
bo curpa mes no por curabo? Por ehempel, un bon
sosiego anochi por ta tur local bo tin mester pa aliviA e
tension di cada dia; un dieta apropid combine cu un
schedule di bon ehercicio ta mas consehable cu
tumamento di pildoranan pa reduce bo apetit. E manera
bon y natural no tur ora ta e manera mas facil, pero bo
salud no ta bal e esfuerzo?
