The eWebOQ® DOT Compliance Library addresses Department of Transportation regulatory compliance requirements associated with natural gas and hazardous liquids pipeline work, including Public Awareness, Drug and Alcohol Awareness, Contractor Safety, Accident/Incident Investigation, Fatigue Management, and Control Room Management (CRM).
Addresses public awareness program requirements for the natural gas and hazardous liquids pipeline industries, including types of stakeholder audiences, message content, message delivery frequency, and program evaluation.
Addresses workplace substance abuse, DOT-regulated drug abuse policies, job performance, crisis situations, drug testing requirements, and the roles and responsibilities of supervisors.
Addresses workplace substance abuse, DOT-regulated alcohol abuse policies, job performance, crisis situations, alcohol testing requirements, and the roles and responsibilities of supervisors.
Examines basic safety principles for natural gas and hazardous liquids pipeline workers. Course topics include guidelines, emergency procedures, communication, recordkeeping, and equipment and operations.
Discusses the general steps necessary to conduct an investigation of an accident or incident involving natural gas and hazardous liquids pipeline systems.
Examines how control room supervisors can recognize and manage fatigue on the part of controllers who work with SCADA systems for natural gas and hazardous liquids pipeline operators. The fatigue mitigation strategies in this course are also useful for supervisors of shift workers at compressor and pump stations and other workers involved in around-the-clock operations such as pigging, hydrotesting and dewatering, pipeline tie-ins, and new pipeline and station construction.
Examines fatigue countermeasures that natural gas hazardous liquids pipeline controllers and other shift workers can take to prevent fatigue. Strategies that these workers can take both at home and at work are discussed.
An overview of the control room management provisions of 49 CFR 192, “Transportation of Natural and Other Gas By Pipeline: Minimum Federal Safety Standards,” and 49 CFR 195, “Transportation of Hazardous Liquids By Pipeline.” Major provisions of the CRM amendment are addressed, including written CRM procedures, roles and responsibilities, adequate information, point-to-point verification, fatigue, alarm, and change management, operator experience, training, and compliance validation and deviation.
