“Reshaping the Industry to Meet Ever Increasing Demands”
The global drilling industry progresses steadily toward a culture where HSE awareness stands paramount, where workers are empowered to intervene to prevent unsafe acts, even if chain of command lines are crossed, and where the holy grail of zero incidents can become a reality. It takes leadership, along with strong workforce participation, to build and sustain a successful HSE&T culture. Mark your calendar for the 2013 IADC Drilling HSE&T Europe Conference & Exhibition that will be held on 25-26 September 2013 in the Mövenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre in Amsterdam.

Moderator: Tony Johnson, Corporate Director Operational Integrity & QMS, Transocean
Process Safety is not a new concept, but as the drilling industry’s focus on Process Safety increases, one challenge we will all face is how we get the right message to the workforce. How do we ensure that we create a sense of importance, with an appropriate sense of urgency?
As part of their discussion the panel will share their approach to ensuring:
- The workforce has a good understanding of Process Safety
- The increased focus on Process Safety doesn’t create a loss of focus on Personal Safety

A Case Study on Hand Injuries in D&T Operations, Causes and Solutions: Ahmad Al-Shatti, Safety Engineer, Garry Gopaul, HSE Specialist, Hamad Al-Kandari, Kuwait Oil Company

The main contributing causes in Drilling & Technology (D&T) are identified, and strategies that have been practically employed for reduction of these types of injuries are demonstrated. Identification of standards and how they are being implemented and the impact of a diverse workforce, consisting of different nationalities on the effectiveness of programs is reviewed, as well as best practices for sustainable implementation.
Are You Fit to Work Offshore? Dr. Francois Pelat, Director of Medical Services, Transocean
The offshore environment is a very unique and challenging workplace which combines the remoteness with a high exposure to industrial risks. The personnel deployed in such a very demanding working environment must be medically and functionally fit for duty to reduce – if not prevent – sudden illness-type condition and occupational incidents. The steps taken by a leading international drilling contractor to progressively roll-out on a global basis an appropriate targeted-health screening associated with a baseline functional evaluation are explained.
H-Factor Program – The Road to Health: Sabatino De Sanctis, Corporate QHSE Senior Vice President, Frano Mika, Corporate Overseas Health Manager, Vincenzo Nicosia, Corporate Italy Health Manager, Saipem SpA

It intends to create a food culture which should become a way of life without imposed constraints or obligations. Once accepted, this health culture will represent a strong guaranty for the improvement and preservation of peoples’ wellbeing, welfare, and quality of life, on work sites and in their respective homes and families.

The focus will be on the critical importance of situation awareness and the perception and communication of risk. Ron will illustrate how the inherent psychological and cognitive characteristics of people can interfere with effective risk assessment and real-time, operational decision making, and illustrate strategies that can be followed to reduce the related risks. The presentation will also summarise some thinking on what has been learnt from major incidents about the range of human factors issues that need to be managed to further improve human reliability in well operations.

16.45 Closing Remarks
Unassigned Papers of Note:
The following paper proposals will be included in the conference if a scheduled paper becomes unavailable. In addition, these presentations will be made available in the IADC conference proceedings, should the author so desire.
Using Advanced Media to Enhance Software Training Effectiveness: Roger Lee, Training Manager, David Assaf, Megan Stevenson, Brad Krause, Baker Hughes Inc.
The presentation will highlight the process utilized to create innovative solutions for teaching software to a diverse global audience. Samples of the final visual and audio outputs will provide examples of the creativity incorporated into the training methodology.
Hands Free Pipe Handling: Adham Jaber, Sales Manager, Weatherford
Technology that will help new and existing rigs automate the pipe tripping operation and is easily retrofitted to Double, Triple land rigs, Jack-ups and Barges will be featured. With the use of robotic technology, the tripping operations on a rig can be performed with no hands on the pipe. The ability to remove the Derrickman and Floorhands out of harm’s way during tripping operations will greatly reduce the risk of injury on the rig. The automated racking board pipe handling system also provides consistent and repetitive tripping operations for extended periods of time and in any weather condition. By empowering rig personnel to perform the tripping operation safely and efficiently, you will see up to 15% faster tripping times, allowing you to reach TD faster.
Engagement for Safety: Richard Barna, Managing Director, Connect SL
Research shows that only 3 or 4 out of every 10 employees are engaged in the workplace. It is widely accepted that this is a significant burden on the global economy and on individual organisations in terms of lost productivity, employee retention and safety. Safety improvement strategies still rely on refining safety management systems, compliance and on running awareness campaigns. Given the level of employee engagement it stands to reason that the most effective way to improve safety would be to increase the number of people receptive to the safety message, to improve the level of engagement.
