Decom North Sea Lunch & Learn events give members and non-members from across the UK and Europe the opportunity to hear about developments, whilst networking with key players from the decommissioning sector.
Companies will present their offshore decommissioning capabilities both to raise awareness of their expertise with the operators and major contractors and also to allow the rest of the supply chain to seek opportunities for collaboration.
Our June Lunch and Learn event will include presentations from Optimus Seventh Generation, Safelift Offshore Ltd and SeaEnergy PLC
As we reach the ten year anniversary of the Texas City disaster, our industry is reflecting and asking “What have we learned that has motivated different decision making and behaviour to influence our culture and therefore the performance of our people in preventing danger to both our assets and our people?”
While it is natural to deny that there may be lessons to learn – it was onshore, it was a live asset, it wasn’t here, it wasn’t decommissioning – the lessons of Texas City clearly identified the folly of a reliance on low personal injury rates as a safety indicator to provide a true picture of safety performance and the health of the safety culture.
A focus on high probability low consequence events along with failures in Leadership, Control of Work, Communication, Learning and Workforce Engagement created a culture of risk blindness where it had been normalised to proceed in the face of danger.
This lunch and learn will demonstrate how creating a “Culture of Care” can mature our safety culture. Where demonstrating care as an input toward our plant & equipment, processes and procedures and our people generates predictability, reliability, performance and safety as an output.
This care is built around a principle that safety is the presence of barriers not the absence of incidents. These barriers being physical (hardware), procedural and behavioural. However the motivation of our people to ensure these barriers are used, to make the right decisions and exhibit the right behaviours will be determined by the maturity of the culture and those who lead’s determination to dynamically test the culture.
Specialist offshore manual handling and deck equipment manufacturers, Safelift Offshore, celebrate 21 years servicing the offshore oil and gas industry this year. Safelift provides a full technical procurement service for Greenfield, Brownfield and Decommissioning Projects, both offshore and onshore, including ATEX approved fixed lifting and specialist manual handling equipment.
With each project being unique, Safelift have the flexibility to produce new and innovative equipment that can make a difference to the safety of those who use it and to the successful completion of the job in hand. Safelift also offer manual handling equipment surveys that can highlight any shortfalls with the equipment already on the project and provide a cost effective solution to your manual handling requirements.
Reducing Costs, increasing efficiencies & improving collaboration are all essential to the successful decommissioning of the North Sea’s aging infrastructure. SeaEnergy PLC will demonstrate through the use industry specific case studies how its R2S Visual Asset Management (VAM) software system has been used by operators here in the North Sea and elsewhere for a range of decom specific purposes.
