Cognizant that safety is everyone's responsibility, our team of Health Safety and Environment professionals conscientiously work to enforce and educate us with the HSE fundamentals. They keep us in line with our Cause No Harm philosophy and abreast with the standards in the Offshore Oil and Gas industry.

The ultimate objective of any organization is to have ZERO TRIR (TotalRecordableIncidentRate).TheformulawasdesignedbyOHSAS18001forcalculatingthisisTRIR=Totalrecordableincidentsx 1000000/totalmanhoursworked.Recordableincidentscompriseof Medicaltreatmentcases,Restrictedworkcases,seriousinjurycases andfatalities.Thiswillhoweverbeachievablewheneveryoneinthe organizationbelievesthataccidentsarenotnormalinanyoperationandallaccidents arepreventable.Thisfigureissignificantbecauseitshedslightonthesafetycultureof anorganization.Itisdifficulttoassignanidealrateastheratevarieswithmanyfactors likecompetencyofpersonnel,useofthirdpartypersonnelforoperations,supervision, qualityofmanpowerinvolved,natureofoperationsetc. ToparktheTRIRatZERO,SOCHSEalongwiththecontinuoussupportofseniormanagement and Superintendents is driving the safety culture to the hearts and minds oftheworkforce.Thecriteriahereisnotaboutthestatisticsalone.Theideabehind achievingZEROaccidentsisthatwheneverthereisaninjurytoanypersonnel,itcauses moderatetoseverepaintotheinjuredpersonandhisfamilymembersandhencedoes notfitintotheSwiberphilosophyof"CauseNoHarm" TheacronymSMILEstandsforSee,Monitor,Identify,Listsafebehaviorsandeliminate unsafebehaviors.Itisanobservationandfeedbacktechniquewhichisrunbyworkersforworkers.Itisaprocessthataddressesunsafeactsandconditionsamongstthe workforceandworkplaceandalsoensurespositivereinforcementofsafebehaviors.

Emotional Excellence the Road to Success

I was once told a wonderful definition of personal success and that is, "The warmth of a person's heart".
