The oil and gas industry continues to rebound from the downturn a few years ago. Prices fell, and companies were forced to lay off good employees. For a while, things looked bleak. Even as prices improved, attrition grew as newcomers to the industry filled the roles of those who left during layoffs. Luckily, a few companies bounced back faster than others. One such company dealt with the results of the downturn differently than most: they invested time and money into safety.
From 2015-2017, the company saw an above-average turnover rate. In 2016, as the downturn took its toll, they lost 61% of their employees. Choices had to be made, including how to keep morale high through a turbulent change. They chose the unique path of prioritizing their employees’ safety. In 2016, they began using Wellsite Report.
|Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRI)||1.14||.49||.73|
|Experience Modification Rate (EMR)||.58||.54||.52|
Through this implementation, they cut their Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) by more than half, from 1.14 in 2015 to .49 in 2016. In 2017, they added 300 employees to put their staffing at over 600, averaging roughly 530 for the year. Only 10% of their 600 plus hires had more than one-year experience in the field, which can drive up risk and destroy performance. Wellsite Report enabled our client to maintain their culture of excellence, minimize risk and progress in an environment riddled with obstacles.
Although their number of employees nearly doubled in 2017, their TRI stayed well below the industry average and below its original 1.14 in 2015. With very little experience in the field, these impressive numbers proved how invaluable Wellsite Report can be to maintain or improving a safety culture.
In addition, their Experience Modification Rate (EMR) continuously dropped and allowed them to continually reduce their insurance costs. Finally, their Vehicle Rate plummeted by an impressive -1.95 between 2016 and 2017.
By using Wellsite Report, the company improved their safety culture while other companies struggled. Using the standard tools within WSR, the company was able to:

Despite the greater emphasis placed on safety and mitigation procedures, serious incidents continue to plague the oil and gas industry. While major international players can absorb financial losses resulting from multiple breakdowns, structural and environmental damage, and litigation, just one incident of incorrect operation or equipment failure can put an enterprising small oil or gas […]
Jodi Rell, who served as the 87th governor of Connecticut, said, “At the end of the day, the goals are simple: safety and security.” How very true. Yet while the goals may be simple, the means to achieve them can be complex and costly. The oil and gas industries require multiple insurances: general liability, […]
In a previous blog, we discussed pipeline safety and the main causes of pipeline leaks. While it did cite some statistics about spill incidents affecting U.S. waterways, the article focused more on leaks occurring at overland pipelines. Today’s focus is on offshore spills, specifically along the southern California coastline. What we know so far […]
