To help its members further enhance operational integrity, IADC has introduced the Drilling Near Miss/Hit Report. The new form was launched at the 2013 IADC Drilling HSE Europe Conference & Exhibition in Amsterdam in late September by IADC CEO/president Stephen Colville. “We need to create an environment where every potential incident is captured – what could have happened and how we can prevent it. Then we need to share that information. The sharing of lessons learned is critical if we’re going to improve as a community,” Mr Colville said. An electronic version of the form, currently available in print format, will be connected to an IADC near-miss database; both are under development. View this exclusive video with Mr Colville and Mike Killalea, IADC group VP/publisher, for more details. Additional information is also available at the  IADC Publications online store.
