Oil and gas performance specialist Salos has teamed up with a human behavior consultancy to reduce health and safety risks in the sector. The Aberdeen-based business has worked closely with HFB Consulting over the past year to create an aviation training plan tailored to the oil and gas industry.
The two firms believe their Advanced Human Factors program—delivered onshore and offshore—will bring significant performance benefits, mitigate the threat of human error, and reduce health and safety incidents.
Salos has piloted the program with drilling crews preparing for advanced well-control situations on a challenging high-pressure/high-temperature well, making use of the onshore simulator at Robert Gordon University.
Grant Wallace, managing director for Salos, said, “In industries where safety is critical, human factors are typically behind more than 80% of major accidents, and this is equally true in the oil and gas industry. ... Across the board, we believe safety compliance, procedural adherence, and operational performance can all be transformed, and this offers operators a new layer of assurance and efficiency savings.”
