Safer water management

Posted by Najat Khalil on Oct 26, 2020 10:30:22 AM

The water management industry continues to be plagued by multiple challenges, including aging infrastructure combined with an aging workforce that puts our water supply systems at even greater risk due to the loss of critical expertise and other hurdles like natural disasters including wildfires, floods, and drought that can significantly impact the safety of our water systems.

 

Water management operations will need to unleash the value of data by using analytics and other technologies to drive better decision-making, optimize and prioritize system investments, and drive cost efficiencies that create safer operations.

Ice cold safety

Posted by Zedi Health and Safety Team on Feb 13, 2019 1:08:27 PM

Snow, freezing rain, flash freezes, sleet, black ice or it all put together on any given day and you have the perfect ingredients for stress, danger and a potential catastrophe; or as most of us refer to it as - Winter.

On top of these Winter stresses, we’re also dealing with trying to balance work, life, deadlines, social, and family obligations. It’s easy to get frustrated and stressed over the extra time and effort it takes to get going each morning, when you have to shovel snow, clear off the car, wait for the defroster to even start working and inevitably, get stuck in endless traffic.

The gift of safety

Posted by Zedi Health and Safety Team on Dec 19, 2018 2:39:00 PM

The holiday season is here and no matter which holiday(s) you celebrate (or not), it's a change in the season that affects everyone. Traffic is more hectic as the time draws near, and chances are pretty good that those that said last year that they will be better prepared for the next holiday season, are not.

Most of us will being getting more than enough of an emotional charge from watching way too many of the Christmas movies on TV that we watch every year that always manage to bring our senses to a yearly high. Many of us have family and friends coming to our homes, and we'll will be in a rush to make it a ‘perfect day’ and in a full on panic to get all the details just right to make it memorial, and joyous for all.

Accurately alarming a pipeline leak

Posted by Community Contributor on Oct 19, 2018 4:04:14 PM

For years now we’ve been able to monitor tank levels, compressors, pump operations and flow meters. Most of that is pretty cut-and-dried. The tank is at whatever level it’s at; the pump is either running or it’s not. An alarm tells us what we need to know the minute we need to know it.

But detecting a pipeline leak involves combining a number of data points and deciding which ones, or which combination of points, means there really is a leak. I’m stressing “really” because the industry first believed any anomaly needed to be alarmed because at that point an anomaly equaled leak, and we defiantly know the faster that leak could be stopped, and repaired; the more profits from your production ended up staying in your pocket.

Safety in these numbers

Posted by Zedi Health and Safety Team on Oct 4, 2018 3:37:00 PM

Maybe the most important thing to learn about safety is that it’s a team effort. If one person makes a safety mistake, other team members are at risk, even if those others are doing everything right.

In other words, on the job site, you are indeed your brother’s (and sister’s) keeper.

Safety involves training, reinforcement and engineering to reduce hazards.

Safety is trust, training and people—even at home

Posted by Robert Webb on Sep 18, 2018 3:10:00 PM

Do you have one of those little voices in your head that tells you to take safety shortcuts on home projects? Like when you don’t turn off the breaker before replacing a plug, it says, “What could go wrong?”

Dog days of summer - Heat safety

Posted by Zedi Health and Safety Team on Aug 16, 2018 12:28:00 PM

Greek and Roman astrologers recognized that, with the rise of the star Sirius in the summer sky, they were about to enter a period of extreme heat, drought, thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs and bad luck… Today we just know this as the hottest part of the summer and with wildfires burning across North America, the effects are easy enough to see!

But, it’s more than fires that endanger lives. Field Service team members are deployed every day to work in the heat and it’s essential that these workers are protected from the hazards of the “Dog Days of Summer.”

Now you see it: Zedi Video Surveillance adds remote asset security

Posted by Community User on Jul 30, 2018 10:30:00 AM

Seeing is truly believing. Through Emerson's Zedi Access you can “see” so many issues right from your computer or phone via Zedi Go:

Is my unit running?

What’s the line pressure?

Who's actually on-site?

Is the tank filling up?

Techs and pumpers are already logging much less drive time, the equipment is logging lots more “up” time and the accountants are pushing that bottom line lower and lower. And yet—it still would be nice to actuallysee what’s happening out there.

Zedi Automation as a Service braves any conditions for your oil field

Posted by Amy Thibault on Mar 21, 2018 10:30:34 AM

“Baby, It’s Cold Outside” doesn’t begin to describe winters in Wyoming or Montana. Winter lows average well below zero, whatever scale you’re using. It’s why detailed training, safety, planning and teamwork are literally life-and-death issues as we help keep oil and gas production flowing - in even the coldest, and hottest areas of North America.

Whether it’s one of our Automation installation team members that work in temps around 110 degrees in the complete dust and heat of summer in the Permian, or well below zero in the Bakken - no one leaves the yard without extensive training, preparation, and a carefully checked list.
