A holistic HSE philosophy includes all aspects of offshore activity, including the standard of the installations, construction philosophy, operational standards, training of personnel, and maintenance. All of this with one main goal: minimising all forms of incidents and to keep people safe.

To keep continuous improvement up, we keep asking ourselves critical questions:

  • How can offshore safety be further improved to avoid future accidents? Or to put it into even simpler words: Are offshore QHSE standards in the North Sea good enough?

  • Why is there not a clearer process in place for something as basic as offshore mustering? Today, an offshore worker can be at one installation one month, and another installation the next month, and experience different mustering philosophies. Why aren’t offshore companies coming together to discuss and agree on one “best practice” way of mustering?

  • Why are companies, in 2021, still using outdated methods to keep track of their personnel offshore? Many companies use pen and paper-based lists to keep a POB overview. How useful would these lists be in case of another “10-year accident”, in the middle of a stormy night, with harsh seas and crew members in panic (Learn more about RFID-based mustering)?

  • Why are there no stricter regulations in regards to having a full overview of the most valuable assets offshore, i.e. people? It is proven beyond any doubt that automated, digital solutions would reduce muster and evacuation time by as much as 50% when it matters the most.
