The drilling industry is actively working to enhance its safety performance and has strong results to show for it, Joe Hurt, IADC regional VP North America and lead staff land HSE issues, said during an exclusive video interview with DC publisher/editor Mike Killalea at the 2012 IADC Drilling HSE Asia Pacific Conference on 25 April in Singapore. In fact, offshore drilling contractors participating in the IADC Incident Statistics Program reported no fatalities in 2011. Mr Hurt also urged contractors to continue to share safety lessons learned through the IADC Safety Alerts program. More information can be found here.
