  • OSHA Brings Training to the Next Level

    The processes oil and gas refineries conduct daily requires some of the highest safety standards. Greenup Industries’ highest priority is to uphold these standards for the safety of employees, the environment and quality of work.

    We make sure all the employees we train to work at oil and gas refineries across the Gulf South are well versed in safety regulations, so that they do not put themselves, others or the environment in danger.

    In 2014, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) launched the Hazard Identification Training Tool. This is an interactive training tool in the form of an online game. Workers can learn core concepts of identifying hazards in the workplace by using this tool. What makes it effective is that it allows users to picture themselves in the scenarios and identify right processes from wrong. 

    Workplace dangers are not to be taken lightly and while the game is not tailored to just jobs in the oil and gas industry, it does a great job of outlining the importance of safety in industrial workplaces.

    Here is an oil and gas simulation video made to increase awareness, education, and safety in the oil and gas industry. Watch here. Safety is our number one priority when training newcomers to refinery work in the Gulf South.

  • Prepare Your Plumbing for Freezing Temperatures

    Winter has arrived in Southern Louisiana and across the South. With freezing temperatures reaching our typically warm, humid climates, many residential homes and businesses are left wondering what to do to combat against potential harm including frozen pipes. Greenup Industries specializes in In-Plant Property Management including Plumbing and Septic Maintence, so we’ve asked our experts for a few tips that might help you when temperatures dip closer to freezing.

    Safeguard Your Pipes
    During freezing temperatues, your pipes are at high risk. If they freeze over, they can somtimes burst causing a lot of financial strain to fix or replace. In order to avoid this, let your sinks drip over night. This helps prevent pipes from freezing. In addition, open cabinet doors to kitchen and bathroom sinks to allow warm air to protect and circulate around plumbing. Keep doors, windows and garages closed during these times, too, to better insulate and warm plumbing.

    Exterior Pipes Need Different Protection
    Spigots and outside pipes and plumbing require a bit of a different approach when preparing to prevent freezing. Wrap outside pipes in small towels and let drip if necessary.

    Prevent Frozen Septic Tanks

    Septic tanks freezing over can be an unimaginable mess for your business or home. To avoid dealing with what could be a severely foul occurrence, take the following precautions. Empty your septic tank. Yes, this is regular maintenance, but not always the first task people jump at when temperatures are already uncomfortably low. If a full tank freezes, this could cause a septic tank to burst. Another thing to consider is cracks and open areas. Be sure to inspect for any potential leaking as this could also invite more liquid to seep into the tank and cause bursting. And of course, keep water moving through the system if possible. Water in motion won’t freeze, so if your business is closed due to inclimate weather, be sure to check back in daily and induce some motion through the system.

  • Safety in our work and across the Gulf South

    The safety regulations at any refinery are extremely important and directly correlated to a staff's level of danger. Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf South is home to a large number of refineries, meaning there are thousands of workers who are at risk of injury for several hours a day. It is our job to make sure our people are safe and Greenup Industries puts safety at the forefront of every job we work on. 

    There are inherent risks present in the industrial industry that must not be overlooked. It takes detail oriented, meticulous teams to provide the proper environment for those working in the refining industry, which is why you don't often hear of major accidents or disasters on sites. Extensive procedures are conducted to manage potential risks all the while keeping operations running smoothly for all workers and the communities that surround these sites. 


    Because of the high safety standards, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports:

    • Refining is one of the safest industrial activities in the US, with fewer worker injuries than sectors such as education, retail sales, and financial services
    • The rate of non-fatal injuries among U.S. refinery workers declined by 36% between 2003 and 2011
    • efiners operate under extensive self-imposed safety measures designed to provide maximum protection to our communities

    Greenup Industries has been recognized for its efforts to keep safety standards a top priority in all of our work and this would not be possible without our team of experts working in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and California. The oil and gas industry could be so much more dangerous, but with crews like ours, negative statistics are quickly becoming a thing of the past.
