Industry to roll out SEMS toolkit at upcoming conferences

Posted on 24 August 2011

Offshore Operators CommitteeThree upcoming conferences are being held in Texas and Louisiana to introduce a toolkit that the Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS) Task Force of the Offshore Operators Committee (OOC) has developed in conjunction with the Center for Offshore Safety (COS) to help operators and contractors comply with new SEMS regulations. Conferences are scheduled for The Woodlands on 30 August, New Orleans on 31 August and Lafayette on 1 September.

The OOC/COS SEMS toolkit includes:

• Audit checklist;

• Matrices of regulatory mandated training for drilling/marine/production;

• Knowledge and skills documentation worksheet;

• Operator-contractor agreement letter templates;

• Terms/definitions – clarification document; and

• Compliance readiness worksheet.

With the 15 November deadline looming for implementing the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) SEMS regulations, operators and contractors that operate on the US Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) are encouraged to send an appropriate representative. These conferences are intended for operations managers, as well as other groups critical to SEMS compliance within the company.

There is no cost to attend; however, due to time and space limitations, companies are asked to limit attendance to no more than three representatives per conference.
