It is well understood that many of the major safety incidents witnessed within high risk industries are directly attributable to, or exasperated by Human Factors. Training that addresses the human factors and deficiency of non-technical skills in the individual and/or team has been proven to reduce accidents and incidents during safety critical operations.
In the oil and gas industry, IOGP’s Review of Well Control Incidents (Report 637) states that the Human Factor was the most common contributing factor to a majority of well control events – nearly three quarters of the 172 incidents reported by IOGP Members were attributed to human factors. These incidents include the catastrophic Montara and Macondo blowouts and many other less infamous incidents which have adversely effected lives or the environment.
Aberdeen Drilling School delivers three levels of Non-Technical Skills and CRM Training, all based around the fundamental principles of:
The ideology behind our training is that clear understanding of correct behaviours and responses, together with well developed non-technical skills (such as clear communications and effective teamwork), can greatly reduce the likelihood of human error in complex, safety critical operations in the oilfield.
These courses are not open to the public. These courses are company-specific and as such can be designed to suit the audience you choose. Candidate suitability and assumed base knowledge will be discussed and agreed in the early stages of course development.
We can provide training to suit your needs, from introductory training with limitless applications to improving working environments, to CRM for safety critical industries, and WOCRM which is specifically designed to enhance well operations.
