In 2014, the US Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) approached SPE regarding a proposed collaboration opportunity to develop a voluntary industrywide safety data sharing framework. The discussions, expert opinions, and suggestions offered by the group of safety-data management SMEs during the Summit are captured in a Technical Report that was approved by the SPE Board of Directors in September 2016 and is now posted on the SPE web site. The purpose of this panel discussion is to present highlights from the Summit and the resulting Technical Report.
More teams are operating virtually and the degree of virtual working could encompass a team that is spread across the globe. A number of issues become predominant for the manager in this setting. These include: managing the “them” and “us” syndrome amongst dispersed team members; motivating an individual that operates remotely from other members; creating a sense of team unity and identity; and understanding the range of national cultures that shape local individual decision making. By creating a collaborative environment, dispersed team members are encouraged to capture and share knowledge that aims at both the team and the organization’s institutional memory.
According to a recent survey by Millennial Branding and American Express, over 61% of managers consider soft skills to be more important than hard or technical skills.
Soft Skills can give you the edge to perform at your maximum abilities.
Many may recall what a profound impact the industry’s worst offshore Oil & Gas incident has had on our business. Survivor Steve Rae will discuss his thoughts and experiences from Piper Alpha to hopefully influence how safety can be improved by us all as individuals through accepting personal accountability and adopting a more proactive approach.
This report was written by a steering committee of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). Industry input was obtained from a summit held April 2016 in Houston as well as members from SPE online communities. This Technical Report is based on discussions and conclusions from the summit and is intended to provide guidance on an industry-wide safety management data sharing program. The overall objective of the effort is to: a) eliminate or reduce risk of harm through industry sharing of data, b) to generate information that builds knowledge, understanding and ownership, and c) to disseminate recommended corrective actions to prevent a re-occurrence. It was approved by the SPE Board of Directors in September 2016.
