Safety Visually Challenged

Published in Oil Industry News on Wednesday, 15 May 2019

Graphic for News Item: Safety Visually Challenged

This visual representation of safety and innovation has a clear message as to what’s right and what’s wrong yet it is a day to day occurrence in the oil and gas industry that what may seem obvious to those outside looking in, is not so obvious to those who have always done it that way on a daily basis.

A website focused on the obvious representation of safety innovation is what has been developed by RigDeluge®, based around pictures and videos that focus on the problems encountered and lessons learnt shown as solutions implemented is as direct approach as you can get towards adopting safety innovation.

When we view a picture we have an instant emotional response, if you look at the image above you can see one man struggling and another relaxed, the right way and the wrong way. If you were to ask both these operators about their experience during these well test operations you would be given two very different accounts of how working on the flare boom was for them.

If you were to ask the well test engineer who planned the job what he thought about this picture the response might be a little bit different as the engineer who gave the ok for the system on the left might be a little bit defensive as to why the walk way was allowed to be blocked and why the well test operator was put in harms way when he never had to.

Taking it to the Duty Holder level where responsibility inevitably lies they to would be defensive as they would have been advised by the engineer that hazards and risks had been reduced to as low as reasonably practical which they have clearly not and if they had been shown this picture before the operation the one on the right would have been used without debate.

The thought process of how we see safety in oil and gas is normally constant but where innovation comes into play and a change is required to the way things have always been done it throws a whole new dynamic into the decision making process.

So to break down the right way from the wrong way RigDeluge® have focused on less text and more videos and images that will challenge your own personnel opinions as to the way you chose to do your operations.

With Nine Products all holding Patent Status or at the very least with Patents Pending this required a full website upgrade taking into account all the issues they have faced over the past seven years introducing safety innovations to market. There is no point debating safety or arguing with a potential client as to why the safety innovation should be used and this approach will allow everyone to be challenged to their very core as to doing the right thing or not.

After looking at this picture its clear that safety is not your focus if you use the system on the left and that’s the self-governing beauty about such pictures, you cant hide this from anyone nor can you yourself say that you are safety focused if you chose the one on the left after being advised in such a way.

Our industry has many barriers in place that prevent engineered solutions taking over from administrative controls and the core values of the Operator is not always represented by those providing the products and services they require for the day to day operations and this direct challenging approach will help drive safety forward in the oil and gas industry.

Its clear from the pictures on the website that problems have been solved and safety has been achieved with reduced costs so all we ask from this article is go have a look and see how easy it can be to both improve safety and save money by simply following the process of using an engineered solution instead of administrative control where available.

Once you have reviewed the products the site has two very unique sections based on charity and health that will allow you to see the core values of RigDeluge® as a company again on a visual level that is very different from the norm.

This could be a good approach for company websites as it allows those looking at it to be challenged through a visual experience that enables a core value decision to be made on what’s been seen by that individual.

www.rigdeluge.com not just another website but a visual experience.
