Safety Orientation of Guests at the BP Naperville Complex

Visitors are individuals whose whereabouts will be known by their host during their visit to the site. It is the responsibility of the BP host to orient a visitor on the following basic topics:

1. All emergencies … call extension 5555

2. Follow all traffic regulations / signs, wear seat belts at all times and do not use cell phones while driving.

3. Sign in at the gate, wear the badge issued to you and sign in at every building you visit.

4. Obtain approval before entering labs / operating areas or taking any photographs.

5. Smoking is expressly prohibited inside any building and only permitted in designated outdoor areas supplied with approved disposal cans. See the Smoking Policy for further details.

6. BP host must provide SDS for any of BP’s chemicals the visitor may handle.

7. BP host must obtain SDS for any chemicals the visitor may bring on site. 

8. During an emergency the alarm or PA system may sound. Depending on the emergency everyone will be instructed to evacuate or seek "shelter in place". The host is responsible for giving specific instructions/locations to each guest. Do not use the elevators during an emergency. Do not leave the site until authorized.

9. Minimum protection for entering labs and operating areas is wearing full-length pants, a top that covers your shoulders, closed-toe shoes and safety glasses.

10. Recognize that the site operates under an environmental management system.

11. Be aware that the site environmental policy recognizes BP’s corporate commitment to “no damage to the environment” by committing to the following key principles.

  • Continual Improvement (Plan/Perform/Measure/Improve)
  • Pollution Prevention (Recycle/Minimize Waste)
  • Compliance with the law

12. Follow site recycling program. Ask BP host for details. 

Visitor videos are available online here, please select the appropriate campus. Visitors may perform some limited work activities (training, calibration, etc.) under the direct supervision of their host, however the host’s safety orientation must cover all aspects of their work. Guests are provided with a Visitor Safety Brochure by the Security Officer when they enter the site.

Guests are generally classified into 1 of 5 categories for Orientation and Training purposes:

  1. Guests include Working Visitors.  Working Visitors are persons performing special services that may or may not be covered by a contract. It is the responsibility of the BP Contact or Client Representative to designate a group as a Working Visitor. Working Visitors must be oriented by their BP Contact and watch the Visitor Safety Video. Their BP Contact must know their whereabouts at all times while visiting the site, and account for them during an evacuation. If you are unsure if your contractor or consultant meets the requirements for a “Working Visitor”, please contact the HSSE Department at +1-832-619-2186. The following groups may be considered Working Visitors. 
  2. Contractors performing laboratory or office equipment startup/repair who have been trained specifically for the task of repairing the equipment in question OR Contractors/Consultants who are brought on site to share knowledge.
  3. Temporary Administrative & Technical Help are individuals that provide supplemental human resources and are provided by an agency. Unlike contractors, these individuals take their daily direction from BP personnel. These individuals will be orientated by their host and must initially view the contractor videotape available in Security. 
  4. Consultants or guest speakers who are brought on Site for their intellectual expertise.
  5. Delivery Persons are individuals that will deliver goods to pre-designated areas of the site with no direct supervision by a BP employee. These individuals are orientated by Security prior to their delivery.
  6. If these individuals (except for delivery persons) continue working past 30 days, they must attend Chicago Area Safety Awareness (CASA training) and be included in appropriate HSSE training offered by the site or BU.
Contractors are individuals, other than BP personnel, performing work or providing services for the site. These individuals do not receive daily direction from BP  but are covered by the specific requirements of their contract. If no contract exists, the orientation & training requirements will be defined, prior to beginning the job, by the BP Contract Administrator, HSE and the contractor. See Policy on Working with Contractors and Others for further requirements.
Regulations require the BP Contract Administrator to provide information to contractors concerning possible hazards they may encounter while completing a work assignment. BP Contract Administrator must provide SDS for any of BP’s chemicals encountered. The orientation/training of personnel employed by the contractor and subcontractor is the duty of the contractor. A contractor orientation videotape is shown in Security to assist the contractor in providing a site orientation to their personnel. Contractors entering areas of the facility covered by OSHA Process Safety Management (PSM) regulations have additional requirements detailed in that area’s PSM program. The Contractor must supply SDS sheets for all chemicals brought on site to the BP Contract Administrator.
