Behavioural workshop to precede IADC Drilling HSE Middle East 2009

Posted on 18 November 2008

At the Abu Dhabi conference in April, IADC has asked associate member STC Global Ltd to deliver an interactive workshop to reinforce the importance of getting the right attitudes to safety in place.

The event will focus on creating an awareness and understanding of the consequences that an organisation faces as a result of poor safety performance – consequences that last a long time and affect people, budgets, operations and reputation.

Typical of STC’s approach to learning, the workshop will be very practical – with teams working together to demonstrate key messages in a fun and memorable way. Participants are asked to arrive at the workshop with an open mind and a willingness to participate.

STC is a Scottish-based international training company. Since its formation in 1996, it has delivered learning solutions that encompass leadership and management development, project and business management, coaching and mentoring, safety and a broad range of other professional disciplines.

IADC Drilling HSE Middle East 2009 will follow the workshop and address its theme, “Leading Behavioural Change in a ‘Green Hat’ World,” through a series of presentations and speakers.

Building leaders and ensuring competency is a formidable challenge as the global wellsite industry expands its ranks like never before. Not only will the industry’s ranks of entry-level personnel surge, but the new reality means people will advance to supervisory levels at an unprecedented rate, despite having less experience than in the past.

This translates to a “Green Hat” world at multiple levels in the drilling and completion industry.

IADC Drilling HSE Middle East seeks to help industry develop strategies to develop leaders and build competency quickly and efficiently, as well as mold behaviours to improve safety performance.
