Surviving the Surprise Inspection

Imagine this: a surprise inspection hits your rig, and you DON’T need to worry. It’s not a fantasy, it’s reality. Despite the industry wanting more autonomy and less interference from agencies, surprise inspections still show that many offshore rigs are committing serious safety violations. The increase in inspections are a result of the Deepwater Horizon accident back in 2010, when 11 offshore employees died.

For those using Wellsite Report, inspections cause no concern because employees have the resources to create a culture of safety. This reduces employee mistakes, improves equipment reliability, and keeps you abreast of what’s really happening in the field. Take for instance one of our customers who implemented WSR in 2016. They had a huge overturn of employees, only 10% of whom had more than 1 year experience in the oil and gas field. Normally, that would be a huge cause for concern: put a large number of inexperienced workers into a high-risk area and you’d think the safety issues would be numerous. However, our customer found that their Total Recordable Incident Rate stayed well below its number in 2015. For our customer, a surprise inspection would have cause little to no concern — they prioritize safety.

How do you keep a surprise inspection from causing you headaches, fines, and other frustrations? You implement Wellsite Report. You need to be consistently safe and Wellsite Report gives you the power to create a culture of safety – before, during and after inspection.
