Safety Series: Cardinal Rules

AmeriGas holds a core set of safety beliefs and principals that guide every employee and ensure that we operate with the highest safety standards.  In a series of articles, we will detail the major parts that keep our customers and employees safe:

  1. Safety Policy
  2. Cardinal Rules
  3. Leak Checks
  4. Red and Yellow Tags

Cardinal Rules

The Safety Cardinal Rules are designed to complement our existing Safety Policy and ensure safety procedures are followed at all locations. These rules place the highest priority on individual safety and hold each employee accountable for their actions. A violation of a Cardinal Rule could result in a serious incident, injury or death.

  1. Always follow the System Leak Check policy as defined in the AmeriGas Safety Reference Guide.
  2. Always follow the Red (Danger) Tag Procedure in cases where a customer’s propane system, equipment, appliance or piping system is causing an immediate danger or threat and must be shut (locked) off as defined in the AmeriGas Safety Reference Guide.
  3. Immediately report all injuries and incidents completely and never omit information.  All Occupational Injury occurrences must follow the policy as defined in the AmeriGas Employee Handbook.
  4. No smoking in any AmeriGas commercial vehicle or in any areas designated as “no smoking” zones will be permitted.  This includes company buildings, facilities, and work yards (storage, filling and work areas).
  5. NEVER pull away (drive the vehicle forward) when the hose is connected to either storage tank or cylinder (includes customer storage units).  Always follow the defined “Prevention of a Pull Away” process.
  6. NEVER disable safety equipment without proper authorization and necessary permits – this includes the failure to engage outriggers during crane operation and the removal of safety guards from operating equipment.
  7. NEVER cause a vehicle to roll-over.  This covers all “at fault” roll-overs, recognizing that some roll-overs may have resulted from circumstances outside of the control of the driver.
  8. Follow the Equipment Lock Out and Tag Out procedures when maintenance or servicing is done on machines and equipment as defined in the AmeriGas Safety Reference Guide.

    I have been trying to contact you over the past month regarding a simple issue. Never is a customer service rep available. After 20+ minutes I always leave a call back number. I am yet to receive a phone call.

    Hello, I do consent your ideasyou’ve present on this post. Toilet problems are always nasty but you have to do, also the repair rate is not cheap. Most of time I prefer to do the job by myself. Do you still have any other posts about this topic?

    * Listen to the ways the contractor and the subcontractors talk with
    each other. Municipal storm drains have a minor and major
    system which are used independently or together to most effectively manage water flow.
