Today, advancements in machinery, technology, and safety requirements are rapidly reshaping the way field operations are carried out. To stay at the forefront of the latest OSHA practices in oilfield safety, we routinely conduct safety audits in the shop and in the field, so we can fulfill our promise of always delivering reliable, uncomplicated service to our customers.
At OilTools Services, causing no harm is always our priority and we accomplish this by managing both personal safety and process safety risks. Process safety is focused on identifying major hazards and implementing and maintaining barriers to prevent catastrophic events.
We conduct risk assessments to identify the barriers necessary to reduce the risk of a catastrophic event to a tolerable level. We recognize three types of barrier elements that work together to make up our barrier system. Each barrier element must be implemented and maintained to effectively manage process safety risks:
People Barrier Element
Plant Barrier Element
Process Barrier Element
Our Operational Assurance Program
Our operational assurance processes are in place to verify that our barrier elements remain healthy
- Self- Verification - a process of ongoing verification tasks performed onsite by rig-based personnel with barrier health accountabilities. This process includes assessing the health of safety-critical assets and verification of Life Saver topics through dedicated processes and checks.
- Oversight – supervisory verifications performed by both rig-based and shore-based leadership; includes Critical Area Verifications conducted by heads of departments and other line-level supervisors on the rig. Also includes verification of compliance with Life Savers.
- Audits – consist of rig management and Business Unit audits of rig operations. Includes the corporate “Core Value Team” who conduct fleetwide audits against Operational Assurance Program protocols to drive continual improvement.
