Plan

Outline, detail and align the objectives to the satisfaction of the customer.

Communicate

Ensure that all customers (internal and external) are aware of the plan and have clear understanding of the objectives.

Execute

This is where the team ‘hits the ground’ to execute the project and work towards the customer objectives.

Assess

Review and summarize the steps of the project and determine what was effective and what could have been improved. With this in mind, the Planning phase can begin again.

Project Planning

Project areas are discussed with appropriate stakeholders to ensure that there is alignment of objectives, that contract details are understood, that resources are available and engaged, that the project schedule is determined and suitable and the project deliverables are clearly identified.

Kick off Workshop

This meeting (virtual or in person) is to outline the project Quality Plan. The Quality Plan acts as a detailed reference guide for customers as to how the project will unfold. Including contact information, resources and outlines for reports, invoicing details and requirements, deciding Key Performance Indicators for the project very clear.

Gap Assessment

This process can be done at a corporate level, site level or both. The can include review of existing documentation or the entire Safety Management Systems. Analyzing documentation and data from both levels allows OSIMS™ to determine the root causes of the Gaps. Gaps are assessed through document review, interviews (both on-site and also with pre visit questionnaires) and observations. The data collected is analyzed by Subject Matter Experts and evaluated through a weighted scoring system. Customers are kept appraised of all findings through written documentation and also through presentation(s) of findings. Any imminent dangers will be reported immediately to site management by OSIMS™ Subject Matter Experts.

Improvement Planning

In this phase the Subject Matter Experts conduct a Strength, Weakness, Opportunity and Threat Analysis (SWOT) of the data. Priorities are determined and integrated into the short, medium and long term goals for Operational Excellence. The Improvement Plan is reviewed with the customer to determine the requirements for the implementation.

Implementation

In the final phase of the project OSIMS™ Subject Matter Experts support the customer with implementation of the agreed improvements. This can include on site Safety Technician Services (STS), training of key personnel with systems, processes or software. OSIMS™ Subject Matter Experts will conclude with a final presentation of the project findings.

Risk management

Risk management is the identification, assessment, and prioritization of risks followed by the utilization of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events.

Process Safety Management

A system to manage hazards associated with Process Industries and is intended to reduce the frequency and severity of incidents resulting from releases of substances and other energy sources.

Health and Safety Management Improvement

Health and Safety Management Improvement is a set of elements put in place to establish and support the Occupational Health and Safety Policy, its objectives and targets and the mechanism to achieve them. It forms part of the overall management system that facilitates the management of the Occupational Health and Safety risks associated with the business of the organization.

Emergency Management

Emergency Management or Emergency Planning is the effort to plan for all resources and materials required to mitigate the effects of natural or man-made disasters.

Security

Security for oil field operations helps to mitigate unexpected dangers and risks, and to implement safety precautions to guard against crime, theft, vandalism and sabotage against facilities which jeopardizes the functionality of operations.

Environment

An effective environmental program is critical in decreasing risk and liability in both local and international aspects of the energy sector.

Asset Integrity

Asset Integrity is the ability of an asset to perform its required function effectively and reliably while protecting Health, Safety and the Environment.

Occupational Health & Industrial Hygiene

Occupational Health is the promotion and maintenance of the highest degree of physical, mental and social well-being of workers in all occupations. Industrial hygiene is dedicated to the anticipation, recognition, evaluation, and control of environmental stressors in, or arising from, the work place that may result in injury, illness, impairment, or affect the well-being of workers and members of the community.

Behavior Based Safety (BBS)

Behavior Based Safety (BBS), a process that creates a safety partnership between management and employees that focuses on what people do, analyzes why they do it, and then applies an intervention strategy to improve what people do.

Operational Excellence

Operational Excellence (OE) consists on the application of principles, systems, and tools toward the ongoing improvement of an organization. OE allows oil and gas leaders to manage their assets safely, reliably, sustainably, and cost effectively. It creates value through systematic and repeatable actions that become incorporated into the corporate culture and determine ‘the way things are done’ within the organization.

Safety Management Systems

A Gap Assessment of the customers’ Safety management Systems clearly identifies the risks. This data allows our Subject Matter Experts to develop a thorough improvement plan for the customer.

Emergency Response Plan

Subject Matter Experts review existing plans to identify gaps and develop a plan which meets or exceeds legislation and industry best practices.

Oil Spill Plans

After identifying existing gaps, Subject Matter Experts develop an oil spill plan in line with best practices and legislation.

Physical Effects Modeling

This computer-based modeling of hazardous materials’ release and its effects on the surroundings is critical for customers to plan for potential hazardous events.

Wellhead Risk Assessment

Subject Matter Experts conduct a detailed wellhead assessment and risk-ranking on the assets. This data is stored in a Wellhead Risk Assessment Program (WRAP) which can be accessed by customers anytime and from anywhere.

Pipeline Risk Assessment

An overview of the integrity of all components of Oil and Gas pipelines and a detailed report on corrective actions.

Facility Risk Assessment

A detailed integrity analysis report of all Oil and Gas facility components along with a complete plan of corrective measures.

Quantitative Risk Assessment

Allow the risk to personnel, environment, installation and/or assets associated with a particular activity to be estimated in absolute quantity.

HAZOP

HAZOP identifies hazards and operability problems occurring as a result of deviations from the intended process.

HAZID

HAZID identifies all significant hazards associated with a particular activity.

Blowout Contingency Plan

Establishes a process for responding to, and safely managing well control emergencies.

Environment

An effective environmental program is critical in decreasing risk and liability in both local and international aspects of the energy sector.

Areas of Focus

The Areas of Focus are the main areas evaluated for potential improvements which would enhance or improve the HSE program. Determining the Areas of Focus where enhancement is required often defines the Key Protocols of a project.

Key Protocols

The Key Protocols are the areas in which United Safety offers Subject Matter Expertise. United Safety’s Subject Matter Experts have several years of experience and are highly-qualified to provide consultancy in their discipline.
