How One Customer Exceeded Safety Goals with WSR

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.

What They Did

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.

 
Measurement 2015 2016 2017
Employees 600 235 535
Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRI) 1.14 .49 .73
Experience Modification Rate (EMR) .58 .54 .52
Vehicle Rate (undisclosed) 3.36 1.41

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.

How They Did It

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:

  1. Implement a state-of-the-art safety observation program
  2. Improve the quality of near miss reporting
  3. Capture and better manage Stop Work Authority events
  4. Improve action item tracking and completion
  5. Become an awarded recognized leader in safety
