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, […]

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 […]

Yes! It’s happened! Between your team of employees reporting more near-misses and you implementing a system to follow-up on incidents, your sites have become safer, fewer employees are getting injured (including clumsy Johnny), and it’s time for you to  share the good news with the bosses. And you know the best way to impress your […]

OSHA Fines Suck. Wellsite Report Doesn’t.

In 2016, OSHA shared their Top 10 serious and willful violations. Within those Top 10 categories were over 35,000 violations – yikes. When a violation is determined to be a Willful Violation (considered intentional violations, committed without regard for employee safety), a company can face up to $70,000. For one fine – and that doesn’t […]

Why Everyone Needs The Cloud

There’s a reason why companies like Netflix, Apple, and even paper-happy Xerox have embraced cloud computing for their businesses: it works. It’s given them the ability to grow faster, manage processes and people more efficiently, and be more accessible to their customers.

Observations Require Management – Here’s How to Do It

Remember when Johnny hurt himself? For the billionth time? It’s one thing to have to deal with Johnny’s antics in the moment, but we don’t always consider the continuing time consumption that happens post-accident. Human Resources gets involved and let’s hope Johnny doesn’t need workman’s compensation. Having your field be down one man doesn’t help, […]

You Need to Use BBS Observations – Here’s Why

Once again, Jonathan has hurt himself. He fell down the stairs. You could have sworn he’s done this before – didn’t the guys on site call him “Lumpy” for a year after giving himself a welt on his forehead? – but there’s no time to figure that out right now. This fall was bad, and […]

What’s with the BBS Hate?

I recently found a discussion on LinkedIn discussing Behavior Based Safety (BBS) reporting. Players in the Oil and Gas industry debated back and forth on its legitimacy, asking, does it actually work or is it a waste of time? As I read through the replies, one thing became clear: people underestimate BBS reporting. Here at […]
