What has the industrial world learnt and changed with regard to HSSE & SR since Herbert W. Heinrich introduced his famous Incident Pyramid in 1931?  Heinrich’s work denounced human unsafe acts as the proximate causes for 88% of all workplace accidents and entailed a revolution in the behaviour-based safety and safety leadership in managing humans at work. In this session, we will endeavour to explore our successes, failures and breakthrough ideas in two primary components of a sustainable HSE culture: human factors and learning from the incidents. As we explore this topic, we would like to pose some very challenging notions to our HSE leadership’s three sacred cows:

  • Target zero has been our common goal for a while now, fully embraced and committed to by all players across the world’s value chain but did this goal really improve our focus on safety in general? Is it really achievable or just another well-designed concept which actually creates the roadblocks and disablers to a real HSE culture breakthrough, suppressing the incident reporting or incident rates, creating numerical acrobatics to keep the HSE performance slates clean and subsequently fails to encourage learning and improvement?
  • Does behaviour-based safety facilitate cultural improvements and shifts providing companies with effective cultural KPI’s? Or has it become just another numbers game, whose rules are well-known and understood by both the employees and the leadership? Are we content and satisfied with our behaviour-based safety programmes as long as our safety observations quotas are met or exceeded which cause us to miss some important and critical indicators before it is too late?
  • Has our lessons learnt/alert approach: “incident → create an alert → send out“, really prevented any single incident among our own companies and contractors? Most likely, none of us could claim such an honour with 100% confidence and unbending certainty. So what can we do to be open, develop the industry pathways, and learn from each other’s lessons to become more effective, reliable and safe?

We do not have ready-now answers and welcome your opinions, ideas, initiatives, and working solutions to share with the industry community.

One of the common challenges all sectors within the oil and gas value chain currently face is planning for the sustained availability of a skilled workforce and ensuring that the highest standards of labour welfare are applied alongside the influx of locally-hired and migrant workers required to support current operations and planned business growth. Managing labour risks in the supply chain, therefore, makes strong business sense. It helps to minimise business and project disruptions, benefits an organisation’s reputation, can provide a competitive advantage, and gives assurance to stakeholders and shareholders that an organisation is in control of its supply chain.  Whilst policy frameworks for worker welfare and labour standards continue to evolve worldwide, labour risks, particularly, in relation to suppliers, contractors and third tiers in the supply chain require an in-depth understanding of risk exposure, the application of workable controls, as well as continuously monitoring and adjusting the local implementation of these controls. These key steps to managing labour risk exposure for a project or investment will be discussed by our panelists.

Following the two major global agreements in 2015: the 2030 agenda for sustainable development, incorporating the sustainable development goals; followed by the Paris climate change agreement, the world is increasing its focus on implementation. The global oil and gas industry has a major role to play in both sustainable development and achieving the aims of the Paris agreement and this panel will focus on the upstream industry’s specific contribution through:

  • Provision of energy - Meeting the world’s energy needs to support sustainable development and provision of gas as a lower carbon fuel.
  • Managing our emissions through implementation of CCS, methane emission and flaring reduction, and energy efficiency.
  • Responsible operations focusing on environmental and social good practice. 

The panel will comprise of speakers from intergovernmental organisations, stakeholder groups and industry, where the discussion will raise awareness of current good practices and opportunities to increase the contribution from the industry to meeting these important global goals.

The oil and gas industry has sustained global economic development for decades. It has contributed to wealth generation and high standards of living in the oil-producing countries. Social development and development of human capital have been an aspiration for most of these countries. The oil and gas industry can play a major role in supporting sustainable social development through well-established programmes that address health and well-being inside and outside its fences. The interdependence of healthy workforces, healthy communities, and organisational success is undeniable. Many companies are developing robust programmes that focus on prevention of chronic diseases and sustaining the health of their ageing workforces. The WHO healthy workplace framework describes enterprise community involvement as a key pillar for sustaining a healthy workplace. The industry can also leverage its wealth of experience in providing programmes to its employees and local communities, to partner with governments and other stakeholders in developing and delivering interventions that address wider national health needs.

A robust and effective Process Safety Management (PSM) system requires that leaders engage with and involve the workforce in building an environment that manages hazards and risks so that no releases occur. Standard approaches to Process Safety Management, such as OSHA PSM (1910.119), and the CCPS Risk Based Process Safety Model, highlight employee participation and workforce involvement as cornerstones for process safety excellence.

All the core elements of PSM, e.g. maintaining asset integrity, robust operating procedures, equipment inspection and repair, implementing management of change, conducting an incident investigation, etc., are enhanced by visible leadership and strong workforce participation. A cooperative participatory environment with a two-way flow of communication on process safety and accountability at all levels of an organisation is needed to create the strong safety culture required to eliminate incidents. Innovative leadership can set the tone and, by setting clear expectations and through visible personal commitment, promotes the required collective care in the organisation. This approach will develop, maintain, and enable the workforce to participate in an improved process safety culture and strengthen operational reliability and asset integrity. 

Accordingly, panel discussions are envisioned to share existing best practices and solutions for:

  • Maximising opportunities for active participation of workforce in risk management activities
  • Demonstrating visible and felt leadership
  • Empowering the workforce to improve safe work practices
  • Unlocking the potential expertise that lies within the hands-on experience from operating the process and maintaining the assets
  • Learning from industry process safety events and ensuring cascading down to the grass root level to avoid recurrence
  • Establishing an interdependent relationship between the asset leadership and the workforce at all levels

The advancements in digital technologies and how they are used and applied in the oil and gas industry have been growing on a large scale. Using big data to gain new insights improves the bottom line and leads to a true competitive advantage in the oil and gas sector. 

The oil and gas companies are beginning to create big data initiatives from exploration and production to oilfield services and transportation. Top companies are designing and deploying technology that can help them pursue new business opportunities, reduce costs, and streamline operations.

In this panel, we discuss key topics such as sources of data, principal drivers to using big data, various uses in conventional ways and in new ways and ideas that have never been explored before, how to adapt to it, and how we would benefit from big data analytics in the near future in terms of efficiencies, recovery, and cost reduction.

Marco Satta
HSE Corporate Director

Effective health and safety performance come from the top; leaders have both collective and individual responsibility for health and safety. The commitment of the leadership needs to be actively and visibly demonstrated. Effective implementation of HSE management systems requires leadership support, commitment, and active involvement. 

Senior leadership is responsible for developing a culture where HSE issues are given due importance and the organisation is motivated to achieve HSE objectives. Further, considering the involvement of multiple stakeholders and the complexity of the HSE issues involved, leadership needs to collaborate and develop partnerships with different entities such as other business and functional groups within the organisation across the value chain and make HSE an integral function of any operation within the company and extend it further to government and non-governmental organisations in order to serve the wider interest of the people and the community at large.

This panel will discuss the leadership role in supporting HSE performance, enhancing its culture, ensuring collaboration across disciplines and divisions and making HSE an integral part of the value chain. Special focus will be put on how HSE will need to shift from a role on minimising losses and complying with regulations to become a core value inherent in all operations and a commitment for providing an injury free operation and maintaining a sustainable environment.

Relying on system-wide innovation and engineering solutions, the circular economy approach seeks to bring a new perspective that considers reuse and regeneration as critical aspects to be considered along with other matters from the earliest stages of designing and constructing assets. Assets for producing petroleum are a great tool during their lifetime, but what is to be done with them when they are no longer of use and what happens to the social capital left behind? These are the questions that arise from closing assets and decommissioning rigs, pipelines, refineries, floating vessels, and gas stations that will be discussed by our panellists.

One of the foundational elements of understanding human performance as it applies to safety is the way in which the human brain works. There have been great strides in recent years for better understanding the functions of the brain, and therefore our ability to recognise and address situations that can lead to incidents. When we understand the brain tries to make routine tasks less taxing on the prefrontal cortex, or slow brain, we can recognise repetitive tasks where the operator may not be responsive to changing situations and introduce mechanisms to re-engage. Complimenting this further understanding of the way our brain works is the better understanding of social science and how we interact. If we want to influence both groups and individuals these sciences can help us create safety programmes and better safety leaders to further our efforts towards an incident-free workplace.
