SATURDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER - SHARING AND LEARNING

To continually improve safety, it is essential that we learn from previous incidents and the experiences of others. It is also important to share our own learnings to prevent others experiencing the same.

Today we are releasing a new Safety Moment which is based on the US Chemical Safety Board (USCSB) animated film of the BP Texas City Refinery explosion which occurred 23rd of March 2005. The safety moment “Texas City – Could this happen again?” has been designed to provoke discussion around the "Step Change in Safety 7Cs" and includes a short practical exercise.

FRIDAY 18TH SEPTEMBER - OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH

Good Occupational Health is key to your working life, both on and offshore. We will examine the following three topics in turn and hear from subject matter experts. These topics are:

  • Local Exhaust Ventilation
  • Potable Water and Legionella
  • The Galley

We have chosen these three subjects because they are commonly found to be problem areas during regulatory inspections and, when not controlled or managed correctly, they all have the potential to have an adverse impact on everyone on site. In each of these areas, findings commonly include issues with Training, Management and Supervision.

THURSDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER - 'SAFETY REP ESSENTIALS' FOR OIMs, SAFETY COMMITTEES AND REPS

Film 1 / Safety Reps: Elected Safety Reps (ESRs) are the focal point for safety engagement for the workforce. ESRs bring agenda items to the safety committee from the workforce and vice versa. They provide an anonymous method of safety issue resolution while using their training to proactively keep their constituents safe.

This film provides greater awareness of the Safety Rep Essential guidance.

DOWNLOAD RESOURCE

Film 2 / OIMS: Safety Committees are facilitated by OIMs and asset managers as a duty under the SI971 legislation. This responsibility is often given with very little training . To help site managers support safety reps and the safety committee, Step Change in Safety has provided guidance for OIMs and supervisors

WEDNESDAY 16TH SEPTEMBER - 'SAFETY REP ESSENTIALS' FOR ONSHORE SUPPORT PERSONNEL

The purpose of these three new films (released on Wednesday and Thursday this week) is to further embed the understanding of the support and help that is there for safety reps, offshore workers, supervisors, managers and onshore support teams. The informative presentations will provide safety reps, onshore support teams, OIMs and supervisors with hints and tips along with some of the softer skills that can be used and also meet the legal requirements when it comes to safety representatives and safety committees.

Today's new film is aimed at the onshore support teams who may not fully understand how much they contribute to the success of safety committees, safety reps and the overall safety at site. Teams such as operations, logistics, IT, HR and legal, heavily influence and enable safe operations by supporting committees to function effectively.

This film will help these, and other teams connect with the Safety Rep Essentials guidance. When safety committees have the right information and proper support, they can resolve safety issues quickly and efficiently.

TUESDAY 15th SEPTEMBER - MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

Our mental health is in constant flux on a continuum ranging between poor and good health. Throughout our lives almost all of us will experience a full spectrum of mental health as we are all exposed to the triggers that may cause changes from good to poor mental health status.​

It begs the question, are you aware of how prevalent poor mental health is? Could you recognise signs and symptoms of a change in the mental health in yourself and your colleagues? Would you know who turn to for help? If you are unsure of any of the answers to these questions, then Step Change in Safety’s – Seven Days for Safety – Mental Health Awareness video is for you. This short, informative video brings together three experienced mental health experts in a conversational style film covering the simple and practical mental health advice.​

MONDAY 14TH SEPTEMBER: MAJOR ACCIDENT HAZARDS

The interactive ‘Blockbusters’ style game, Major Accident Hexagons is designed to provide training material that can be used to educate the workforce on MAHs and process safety, provoking discussion on barriers and the vital role understanding MAHs plays in supporting safe operations. ​​The aim of the game is to horizontally connect the left and right sides of the board by correctly answering the MAH questions associated with each of the hexagons. If you get the question wrong, you will lose control of the barrier and your direct path will be blocked.
