When designing and implementing safety management systems it’s often difficult to calculate the real results achieved from our efforts.
Just this morning I receive a note from a client noting their significant success in their safety outcomes…I just had to share their impressive results!
“Al thanks for your support over the last year. 2011 was indeed a performance “step level” change for HSE results in our Delivery Unit and I appreciate your training program to introduce an important part of our Behavior programs. It really works, both you and I know that but when I review the results this year, it once again hits home how effective our program is. Thought you might like some “data” (as you know I am a data guy!).
We introduced, formally, our safety management system (the what) and our BBS program (the how) c/w coaches and training support for the drilling leaders and drilling front line workers and this is what THEY did.

Lost time incident frequency improved 86% in one year, moved from 4th Quartile to industry leading 1st Quartile (compared to Oil & Gas Producers, which is a tough peer group).
Total Recordable incident frequency improved 61% from last year we are now seeing months where we only have one minor! When I arrived here we were averaging 10/month and on several months were as high as 14 (hurting someone every other day!).
Our frequency for High Profile Incidents (the bad ones!) improved by 53% and most important none involved personal injury.
Regulatory inspections improved from an average of only 45% satisfactory in 2010 (I have never seen such low numbers!) to an exit of 90% satisfactory inspections (close to 400 inspections so no small feat!).
All of this while increasing the capital spend and bringing in numerous new staff and unfortunately changing out those who did not fit our culture.
Pretty dammed impressive Al Quilley. We are a team and I want you to know how effective this has worked across all areas where we have work together!
I look forward to doing it all over again in 2012, lots to do but now we are rolling!”
