The Correlation between Safety & Productivity: Oil & Gas Perspective

Safety Management, Industry News, Health and Safety Program Management

While we have written on how safety and productivity are inter-related, we have not really examined it in some specific industries. Let’s take the Oil & Gas industry. Injuries and other incidents used to be relatively more common in Oil & Gas over other production and manufacturing industries, just based on their hazardous environments. From heavy rotating pumps, to large scale use of industrial chemicals, to remote locations; certain factors have always made that industry a challenge from a safety perspective. But programs over the last several decades have brought modern safety programs to the industry.

On October 16, 2014, Aberdeen Group hosted a webinar that was sponsored by Remedy Interactive. The topic was how to build a roadmap for your safety management strategy. The speakers were myself, Ken Colonna, Director of Safety & Health of a leading international family entertainment and media enterprise, and Ben Archibald, CTO of Remedy Interactive. It was a great discussion and, while there were some broad discussions about safety culture and how companies can build a Best-in-Class culture, the discussion ended up focusing on analytics in a Safety Management System (SMS).

Why Oil & Gas Companies Need to Combine Safety and Operational Excellence

The Oil & Gas industry is booming. With recent advances in technology, supplies of new sources of energy (shale gas, oil from shale, tight sands and the deepwater, natural-gas liquids, etc.) are being discovered everywhere, particularly in the US. Oil & Gas companies are scrambling to construct additional derricks, platforms, and rigs to take advantage of these new resources, while at the same time squeezing as much productivity out of existing assets as possible. However, as companies push to expand their operations and capacity they run the risk of overlooking their most important charge, the safety of their workforce.
