regional news OPCA 1st annual golf tournament a hole in one! By Michelle Rae The OPCA held its first annual golf tournament on October 2. Approximately 65 golfers joined in for a fun day at the magnificent Nottawasaga Resort in Alliston, ON. Mother Nature tried to cooperate for most of the day, but unfortunately, the skies eventually opened up. Many braved the downpour to finish in soggy style! Thanks to everyone who came out to the event. OPCA Director Terry Ablett of Wagg’s Petroleum noted that “The customers, contractors, and suppliers I spoke with all enjoyed the day ... It was, as usual, well planned and executed. The ‘autumn get-together’ was welcomed by everyone I spoke with.” The proceeds from the tournament go to Threads of Life, a very special organization that promotes safety in the workplace and supports families who have suffered a workplace fatality, traumatic lifealtering injury, or occupational disease through many of their programs across Canada. Threads of Life volunteer Johanna Leroux attended the dinner that followed the tournament. Johanna, who tragically lost her son Michael in an industrial fall, relayed her experience and support she has received from Threads of Life, and has since become a speaker and advocate for the organization. We also look forward to supporting their annual Steps for Life event in May. Please visit their website at stepsforlife.ca for more information and consider getting involved. Some OPCA members also support Steps of Life through corporate sponsorship. Finally, we’d like to issue a massive thanks to our sponsors. Without their support, such a successful event is not possible. Support was received through hole sponsorship and prize donations. Our event raised a grand total of $7,350 for Threads of Life. In a note to OPCA, Heather Lyle, Threads of Life’s regional development coordinator, wrote: “We are so appreciative of your efforts and your support - not only the team here - but the families we support. We could not provide the programs that we do without partners such as OPCA - so THANK YOU!” We hope to make this an annual event, so stay tuned for information and dates for next fall’s tournament!

DEF 101 The basics of diesel exhaust fluid By John Allen, vice president of sales and marketing, Eastern Canada, P.D. McLaren Limited Over the past couple of years we have been hearing more about diesel exhaust fluid, or DEF, especially in cardlocks. So what is DEF? John Allen, vice president of sales and marketing, Eastern Canada, P.D. McLaren Limited It is a mixture of 32.5% urea (formaldehyde-free) and 67.5% de-ionized water. This product is not new; it has been in use in Europe and Australia for more than 10 years, and is proving to be the most effective way to reduce emissions in diesel engines. This is accomplished by injecting DEF into the exhaust system, where it vapourizes and decomposes in ammonia. In conjunction with the selective catalytic reduction (SCR), the DEF reacts with the NOx (nitrogen oxide) to form water vapour and nitrogen. This process is the same system used by Mercedes in their Bleutec Series vehicles, and Volkswagen and Audi in their clean diesel vehicles. The advent of the goal of emissions reduction is not limited to the road transport vehicles, be it the cars, pick-ups, light and heavy duty trucks, and highway transport trucks, but also extends to agriculture, mining, power generation, rail, and marine transportation. That being said, DEF is not going away soon, and will be ever more present in service stations, cardlock, and/or any fueling facility. The DEF process starts in the gas fields and from there goes to the ammonia and urea plant for blending. It is then stored at a bulk distributor, and distributed either in a heated and insulated dry-box truck in totes, or insulated, heated tanker truck to the dispensing facility. Again, the dispensing facility will have a different set-up depending on whether it is for resale or own use, and the appropriate installation and dispensing equipment will vary accordingly. Since DEF is made with 67.5% water, it will freeze at -10°C. Although the freezing and thawing cycle does not affect DEF’s concentration or purity, product exposed to long-term temperatures of +30°C will degrade in quality. These factors are to be considered when its storage 6 • CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR • DECEMBER 2014 CPCA_Dec14_FINAL.indd 6 2014-12-04 11:31 AM

DEF is not going away soon, and will be ever more present in service stations, cardlock, and/or any fueling facility. methods and location are decided. Since DEF is corrosive to copper, brass, and other materials, special care is needed when choosing the construction of the storage container/tank, fittings, pipe/hose and any accessory that will be used for DEF. Examples of acceptable types of material are stainless steel, titanium, and additive-free polyethylene or polypropylene. On the other hand, steel, copper, brass, zinc, lead, PVC, CPVC, aluminum, magnesium, plastics, and nickelplated metals are not to be used for DEF, either. The use of any these for DEF storage will contaminate the purity, thus affecting the SCR system of the vehicle to the point where it can become damaged. Cost of SCR replacement can be up to $15,000. The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) standards to which DEF is set are ISO22241-3, ISO22241-4, and ISO22241-5. Special care is not only required for the storage and delivery of the product, but also for its testing. Testing of the system for purging, flow, and calibration tests must be done using approved containers. A clean container void of any other product or product residue must be used. A clean funnel approved for DEF must also be used. Most plastic funnels are okay, just be sure to use only plastic funnels made of either additive-free polyethylene or polypropylene. DEF-approved test measures are only to be used (note: not all stainless provers are compatible) and used for this product only. (For those that are registered with Measurement Canada, DEF product falls under refined fuels.) In our climate, DEF systems, for the most part, have some sort of heating system and/or heat trace from the piping system, tank, and dispenser. Caution should be taken when servicing any part of these systems where the heat system can generate enough heat to burn, and heat trace cables can have exposed wiring, resulting in potential electrical shocks. Even though DEF is non-flammable, the systems might be installed in close proximity to products that are, so this DECEMBER 2014 • CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR • 7 CPCA_Dec14_FINAL.indd 7 2014-12-04 11:31 AM

CapitalPetroleum_CPCAMar14_final.pdf needs to be taken into account. It is important that these systems be checked regularly to maintain proper functionality. When assembling and installing, the use of proper seals and sealing compounds is very important. In our industry, it is known how much diesel fluid permeates if not properly sealed. DEF is worse. To help reduce this, BSPP fittings are often used, as they offer a positive seal when not over-tightened (the over-tightening will distort its sealing ring). The addition of thread sealant, especially a product like LOCTITE 567, will ensure a proper seal and also act as a lubricant for the stainless steel threads. In some cases, hydraulic fittings, JIC type, are used. These offer a positive seal and offer a quick connection and reconnection point without the hassle of the ever-leaking union-type fittings. BSPP is also used in most cases for the dispensing nozzle, as a way to differentiate the standard fuel nozzle from the DEF-approved nozzle. DEF nozzles come in different compositions, including stainless steel, composite, and aluminum. The aluminum nozzles are triple-treated so as not to contaminate the DEF. As it is known, not all rubber hoses and o-rings are considered equal. For DEF, only certain compounds are compatible and are approved for hoses and hose assemblies. Such approved hoses are to be used only, again so the DEF is not contaminated. If o-rings are used and need to be replaced, the peroxide-cured EPDM-type is highly recommended, as is VITON or the non-registered trade name “FKM,” along with a small amount of LOCTITE 567 sealant. DEF dispensers will resemble a regular fuel dispenser for the most part for metered PD/volumetric type or MASS flow, electronic register computer, DEF filter, and solenoid valve. The additional components are internal hose retracting reel, heating system with thermostat, and a means of low temperature sensing device and some sort of insulation of the component area. The exterior of the dispenser is different: in lieu of the nozzle on the outside, it is set inside a door. These additional items and systems will require some attention on 1 2014-12-03 10:47 AM Happy Holidays from everyone at Capital Petroleum 5 CAPITAL PETROLEUM SERVICE LTD. • Petroleum Construction & Maintenance • Fuel Tanks, Pumps & Equipment • Hoists – Surface & In Ground • Decommissioning 500 - 4th Ave East Regina, SK S4N 4Z5 Tel: (306) 757-3533 825B - 46th St East Saskatoon, SK S7K 0X2 Toll Free: (800) 757-1982 8 • CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR • DECEMBER 2014 CPCA_Dec14_FINAL.indd 8 2014-12-04 11:31 AM

Practice Safety POST helps achieve an injury-free workplace By Ron Ballantyne No one wants to see a worker injured on our job sites. The impact of an injury can go well beyond the physical trauma experienced by the injured party. The emotional impact is felt by co-workers, management, and most importantly, by the members of the injured party’s family. The impact may be short lived if the injury is minor, but can be life altering for the worker or their family if more serious or, in the worst-case scenario, fatal. Most of you reading this article are able to recount a situation in your own experience, or one you’ve been made aware of, where that injury has had serious consequences well beyond the injury itself. We need to work toward achieving an injury-free workplace. The Petroleum Oriented Safety Training program (POST) was rolled out across Canada in 2007 to the petroleum retail construction and maintenance contractors and retail petroleum owners. Since that initial roll- 10 • CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR • DECEMBER 2014 CPCA_Dec14_FINAL.indd 10 2014-12-04 11:31 AM

“ Comments from POST members “ It is a major benefit to us to know that our contractors, who also work for other oil companies and who are part of POST, have essentially one safety program for their workers. This means that workers don’t have to consider multiple safety standards and can focus on a single program, making them more efficient and effective and ultimately safer. Our contractors have also been quick to point out that having the same standards for safety across the board has been a welcome change.” out, membership in POST has grown every year, and now encompasses more than 17,000 members, representing more than 3,000 companies. The need for a consolidated safety program to enhance workplace safety in our industry was identified by representatives from Imperial Oil, Shell Canada, Petro-Canada, Suncor, and contractor representatives from the OPCA. Too many workers were being injured on our job sites. The foundation of the POST program is behaviour based safety (BBS), which supports consistent safe work practices and procedures for contractor employees and subcontractors, regardless of the client. A worker’s behaviour cannot be expected to change solely because the retail petroleum owner has a different safety program. Working safely needs to be a core belief for workers and management alike, and engrained in their behaviour. The POST program provides that consistency for contractors and their employees. My personal observation on both retail petroleum construction and maintenance sites since the introduction of the POST program has shown a dramatic increase in worker awareness of the principles of BBS, and a desire to work with the same safety processes and procedures regardless of client. The POST safety program begins with a clearance certificate, with identification of site risks by the site owner and liability transfer for management of those risks to the general contractor as the prime contractor. POST establishes clear expectations for minimum PPE, barricading, confined space entry, LOTO, work at height, hot work, sump entry, critical lifts, and others. The program includes safety processes and measurement of those processes. The processes include last minute risk assessment, job safety analysis, critical procedures, and critical procedure checklists. It is well understood that “what gets measured, gets done.” The measurement of these processes includes - Siep Nyholt, Imperial Oil Limited, asset management SHE advisor “ By raising the bar and increasing our commitment to safety, we can continue to develop a strong safety mindset and culture. Commitment and solid focus on safety processes, procedures, and behaviours is a must. POST (a behaviour based safety program) provides the tools to build on our safety culture. These tools and procedures are in place to eliminate hazards and reduce workplace risk.” - Craig Mills, Suncor “ Shell Retail in Canada has been a long-time supporter of the POST program. The POST program provides us a sustainable and verifiable training program that gives us the confidence that our petroleum contractors consistently understand the basic HSSE behaviour, work permit requirements, and critical task procedures to perform their jobs safely.” - Michael Cooper, Shell HSSE manager, Retail Canada DECEMBER 2014 • CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR • 11 CPCA_Dec14_FINAL.indd 11 2014-12-04 11:31 AM

last minute risk assessment testing, loss prevention observations in the field, and desktop reviews of those LPOs to identify improvement opportunities. Effective use of these tools will not only help to reduce workplace injury, it will also support increased productivity through proper job planning in advance of task execution. The retail construction and maintenance groups of Imperial Oil, Suncor, and Shell have all experienced significant, sustained reductions in recordable incident rates to levels well below the industry average since implementing POST and BBS. Processes and process measurement tools are not enough on their own. For any program to be successful, management of both owner and contractor need to be fully committed and actively engaged in the program to achieve full benefit. A physical presence in the field is necessary to demonstrate that commitment if you expect your workers to make BBS part of their core belief system and behaviour. Without that visible commitment, the program will not achieve its full potential. Implementing a sound safety management system will also provide you with valuable data for analysis to assist in continuous improvement initiatives. As you know, the construction and maintenance workforce in our industry is dynamic. There are always new entrants to the petroleum contractor community, whether it be new workers, new contractors, or new retailers. A consistent managing system for safety must be in place to assist in achieving our objective of “Nobody Gets Hurt” on our job sites. The safety of our workers is something that we can all agree on. If your contracting company is currently not a member of the POST community, I encourage you to consider membership and take advantage of the many benefits the POST program can provide to your organization. For those of you who are already utilizing POST as your core safety program, regardless of your client, thank you. You have taken a key step in our ongoing efforts to achieve an injuryfree workplace.

safety bulletin Stay safe this winter! Updated guideline available By Michelle Rae, administrator, Petroleum Oriented Safety Training Winter is here and it’s time to remember some important tips for staying warm when working outdoors. During the winter season, a temperature of -28 is not uncommon in many areas across Canada when you factor in the wind chill, and exposed skin can freeze in under 30 minutes. Drop down to -40, and frostbite can occur in less than 10 minutes. In extreme temperatures, your body works harder to protect your core and internal organs, putting your extremities such as your toes, fingers, cheeks, and ears at risk for frostbite. Visit the POST website to view our “Guideline for Working in Winter Weather.” The guide can also be downloaded and posted in your office and construction site trailers. The guideline has been updated this year, with even more tips and guidelines to help you navigate through the cold. Tread carefully on icy ground: Winter walking is a safety hazard, too We may not think about it, but slippery conditions caused by ice and snow are as much of a hazard as slippery conditions caused by other elements you may be used to mitigating in your everyday working environment (e.g. oil, grease, water, etc.). Ice grips, or ice cleats, are useful in mitigating the risk of a nasty slip and/or fall due to icy conditions. Ice grips should be part of a worker’s PPE during the winter months if they are exposed to the risk. Ice grips on footwear can help you walk on hard-packed snow and ice. But be careful, as they become dangerously slippery and must be removed before walking on smooth surfaces such as stone, tile, and ceramic. Before buying the grippers, make sure you are able to attach and remove them from your boots. Another option is to look for ice grippers that can be worn indoors, as well. This is more convenient for maintenance and delivery personnel, as it is not very practical to remove them at the door before entering a building. Be sure to read our tips on winter walking that are included in the guideline. POST campaign for proper glove use Gloves are an important part of basic personal protective equipment. It is even more important that workers make sure they use the right glove for the task, i.e. wearing cut-resistant gloves when handling a piece of sheet metal, or wearing nitriledipped gloves to protect hands from fuel or oil. Our job sites continue to see hand injuries as the most frequent injury to our workers. This is not surprising, as most tasks are completed with our hands. Simply wearing gloves does not ensure a worker’s hands will not get injured. Proper glove selection for the task at hand is critical to mitigate the potential for injury. Visit the POST website to download a chart to assist in proper glove selection for the task. To help reduce the number of hand injuries, the POST committee is reviewing the pros and cons of mandating that gloves be worn at all times on our job sites, and is aiming to have a recommendation in time for our spring safety forums. Please stay tuned to the POST website for news on this in the coming months. 14 • CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR • DECEMBER 2014 CPCA_Dec14_FINAL.indd 14 2014-12-04 11:31 AM
