The oil and gas industry’s safety track record is improving, but there is considerable way to go. Operators and safety consultants should consider three areas.
First, they must understand how to classify risk and how to balance prevention with importance.
Secondly, risk assessments must be replicable and recorded, to allow results to be understood later down the line. And third, functional safety should consider the entire lifecycle of the asset.
In this special Energy Voice Out Loud Xpertise Series (EVOL ✕) episode, in paid partnership with Katoni Engineering, James Keachie, Ian Kirkwood and Greg Muir join our Africa editor Ed Reed to offer in-depth insights on the current state of safety, where things have gone wrong and how there may be a better way forward.
