Petrotechnics Executive Vice President to Lead HSE Workshop at Middle East Energy Forum
10 October 2011
Iain Mackay, executive vice president of Petrotechnics is hosting an interactive workshop in October addressing a variety of methods and tools that can enable industry professionals to both understand and manage the combination of factors that can increase the risks associated with frontline work.
There is increasing recognition across the oil and gas industry that serious incidents can be the result of a combination of factors and events. Many of the existing control systems used by the energy sector are unable to manage multiple points of activity. Organisations now need to consider the elements that contribute to cumulative risk and how data can be used to analyse and predict this risk.
Mr Mackay said: “Some companies in the industry are still failing to realise the importance of investment into the systems and processes that will enable them to collect the kind of data that allow for a change of operational practice.”
The workshop, Management of Cumulative Risk and Frontline Work Execution will be held at the 7th annual HSE Forum in Energy from 10 to 12 October in Doha, Qatar. Mr Mackay will explore and evaluate the factors which can increase operational risk and use operational data to demonstrate the impact that can result from cumulative risk.
Delegates will gain the experience to better manage cumulative risk using a combination of Safe Work Planning, Safe Work Control and Operational Risk Management.
Over seven years, the HSE forum has become a vital platform for sharing insights and experiences, aimed at facilitating global excellence in HSE performance. The interactive workshops are designed to sharpen leadership skills and capture leading evidence-based solutions for successfully integrating HSE into business operations.
