Journey Management: A Program Development Guideline

December 2, 2019

The 2019 edition of Journey Management: A Program Development Guideline has been redesigned to be more user-friendly and is intended to assist organizations with implementing or updating a Journey Management program that is tailored to their needs and risk profile.

This updated version incorporates references to the Energy Safety Canada's Life Saving Rules, which provide a consistent approach in the prevention of serious injuries and fatalities.

This guide is not intended to be prescriptive, but to give an overview of aspects to consider in a program, with a focus on areas that are commonly overlooked or under-developed.  

The Need for Journey Management

Driving-related incidents continue to be a leading cause of fatalities in the energy sector, according to data from WCB Alberta. Journey management is an effective way to understand and control risk which, in turn, improves worker safety.
