The IADC Annual Safety Award: A change in values meant a change in attitude on the work floor, where each person is willing to speak up to warn colleagues for unsafe situations.
Updating the safety system was only the first step. Communicating the new procedures one-on-one to all personnel was just as important.
Losing a co-worker was a hard way to learn that safety goes beyond wearing PPE. It demands constant vigilance by every worker, from management to crew, in order to avoid potentially dangerous situations.
This year’s IADC Safety Award winner proves that thorough training, compliance with ISO and other standards, vigilance regarding quality and health, safety and environment (QHSE) results in less on-the-job downtime, fewer accidents, healthier employees, improved performance and the delivery of quality projects.
Acknowledging the maximum effort put into safety and security, while working in an extraordinarily challenging environment, Van Oord Nigeria Ltd was presented with a company award for overall achievement in QHSE (quality, health, safety and the environment).
