Specialized Desanders Inc. (SDI) stops sand right at the source before it can inflict any damage at the well site or downstream. We’ve been protecting workers and processing facilities from the devastating power of sand since 2001.
Sand-producing wells that are not equipped with a multiphase sand separator are subject to erosion, which can quickly present a dangerous situation. Our equipment protects our clients from blowouts, uncontrolled flows, equipment erosion, pollution and plugging of valves, control and measurement equipment. It can inflict expensive damage and shut down production for weeks at a time. The risks range from $10,000 seals and $30,000 pumps to regulatory intolerance and multimillion dollar catastrophic failures. Our goal is to make sure you have the proper equipment in place to get the job done as safely and efficiently as possible.
Specialized Desanders Inc.™ recognizes that Health, Safety & Environmental controls are an essential part of its management function. SDI is committed to providing a healthy and safe workplace. Basic health and safety legislation will be considered a minimum standard rather than the maximum and our program will strive to surpass the minimum in all aspects. The objective of our program is to have an incident free work place. The current goal for 2018 is to increase the awareness of our safety program on an individual basis by introducing an Annual Orientation and to develop a user-friendly Employee Handbook to enhance compliance, accessibility, and to encourage active and ongoing participation from all employees.
All SDI employees will comply with applicable municipal/provincial/federal laws, regulations and codes. Our Health, Safety & Environmental Policy is to be continuously evaluated following a management of change process. Business will be conducted per the responsibilities set out in our manual and the following principles:
SDI recognizes that the success and maintenance of our program is the shared responsibility of management, supervisors and employees. This includes following all recommended safe work procedures, obeying all safety rules, wearing and using personal protection equipment when required as stated in the PPE Procedures, participating in safety training programs and informing management of unsafe work conditions. Everyone has the obligation to refuse unsafe work when unsafe conditions exist or are deemed to exist and to refuse without the threat of repercussion.
SDI management encourages employee involvement for improving safety performance and will promote open discussion for opportunities and ideas at our safety meetings.
