Here is a great example by the President of a major oil company who has a profound respect for Loss Control Management working to affect injury and illness prevention of his employees, as well as all other loss cost that can affect the organizations bottom line profitability.
Losses occur because of a broad spectrum of
causes and root causes. When a loss does occur people, property, profits and the overall
business or entity suffers direct and indirect loss, causing a domino
effect of poor efficiency, quality, reliability, unplanned costs
problems with morale, leaving fertile ground for future incidents and
accidents. We assist business and organizations with the reduction of losses
and the potential for loss so they reach and exceed their objectives/goals in
running the business more consistently, efficiently and effectively, With each loss an organization or business must increase
sales or revenue and increase costs to make up for the lossand set up in-house Operational Controls to reduce loss so they do not severely impact planned profit
margins. In product
manufacturing, research and development, construction projects, most project margins are
tight. Thus, each accidental loss regarding people, property, equipment,
materials, product. environment and customer or regulatory compliance issues,
impacts the company or project bottom line profitability expectation.
It's time for your Organization or Company
Management and Employees to decide how to capitalize on the experience,
knowledge of Global Loss Control in assisting in identifying risks,
controlling losses, reducing the potential for loss and adding value and
profitability to your business. Like anything in business and life, knowledge,
experience and results count and this is especially true in the complex field
of Loss Control and performance measurement of program implementation. We
have the professional loss control management tools necessary to control the
variety of predictive loss scenarios and accidental losses that most companies
encounter in business everyday and this is where Loss Control Management
Auditing can assist.
" Each and every loss a
business sustains decreases profitability, its profit margins, and can have a
finical impact on insurance premiums. The various Loss Control Services and
Audit Systems we offer are in areas that can assist your business organization in reducing loss through identification of hazards and exposures,
maintaining or exceeding compliance, and show you how to decrease your (EMR)

BELOW IS A SMAPLE OF VARIOUS TYPES OF WORK PERMIT AUDITING
WITHIN A PROCESS INDUSTRY OVER A MONTH LONG PERIOD
Case Study #1: A Steel Manufacturer
A floating tube system from Oil Skimmers helps a steel
manufacturer with a 148” plate mill and 86” hot strip mill save
approximately $400,000 per year.
By recovering the high-grade lubrication oil that leaks into the
cooling water, the company not only saves money but recovers
an average of 15,000 gallons of oil each month, as well.
Case Study #2: A Producer of Canned Meats
An Oil Skimmers system helps a producer of canned foods
including turkey, chicken, ham and beef not only save money
– but make money.
By using a skimmer on its treatment lagoon to draw off the
fat generated in the cooking process, the company
recovers approximately 10,000 pounds of fat or waste oil
per week. Further, by selling it to a reclaimer at the going
market price, the company earns anywhere from $2,500 to
$5,000 a month.
Case Study #3: A Grinder Coolant Pit
A company extends the life of its coolant using an Oil
Skimmers floating tube system – and saves $12,000.
With a coolant pit capacity of 14,880 gallons that uses 295
gallons of coolant concentrate at $1,500 per charge, the
company was able to save money by using the system to extract
the waste oil as it passed by in the normal circulation of coolant,
extending the length of time before the coolant was dumped.
Since 1974, the Environmental Protection Agency has
issued guidelines and standards regarding effluent
limitations for more than 50 industrial categories. These
rules are aimed at reducing the discharge of conventional
pollutants by at least 115 million pounds per year at an
annualized cost of $1.9 billion.
In a review of manufacturing facilities that produce oily wastes,
the EPA found oil skimming to be an effective and
environmentally friendly option. As noted by the EPA, skimmers
are cost-effective and efficient at removing waste from water.
According to the agency, skimming, along with water
conservation, leads to generating less pollution and leads to
more effective treatment of wastewater. Skimming is also
more effective in removing effluents, saving industry over $40
million in annualized costs.
Because skimmers assist in helping companies reuse water,
this in turn helps businesses save money by reducing water
Again, the oil and grease collected by a skimmer can be
valuable to other industries. For example, industries with
vegetable oils or animals fats as by-products can be provided
to industries that make products ranging from biodiesel to
soap to animal food. Waste petroleum oil can be reused to
make new petroleum products.
