Aberdeen-based behavioural change consultancy, Optimus Seventh Generation, has reinforced its commitment to safety in the drilling industry, by announcing the launch of its new ‘Operationalising the Safety Case’ workshop.
The workshop, designed for drill rig crew and leadership in the global drilling industry, has been developed to raise awareness of major hazardous accidents within the safety case, and to provide a greater understanding of the strength and depth of plant, people and process barriers designed to protect the rig.
Optimus Seventh Generation Chief Executive Derek Smith said: “In the current economic climate it is increasingly important that expenditure on training is focused on the most vital areas. In our experience there is little of more importance than protecting people, the environment and the rig, by bringing alive the barriers to major accident hazards that are contained in the safety case.
“While the drilling industry is challenged by the current low oil price, Optimus remains committed to investing in the development of training products specifically designed for the global drilling industry. ‘Operationalising the Safety Case’ will be the first in a suite of training products we’re developing, and later in the year we will be launching Crew Resource Management (CRM) for Well Control.”
