North Sea Chapter announces annual safety award winners

Posted on 12 June 2008

For this year’s Merit Awards, the NSC decided to “raise the bar” by recognising operations/installations that achieved extended periods without a Restricted Work Transfer Case or above – incidents that result in individuals being unable to conduct their normal duties. Awards were given to Noble for the Clair Platform and to KCA DEUTAG for the Kvitebjørn Platform.

The Noble Piet van Ede, which has received several merit awards in recent years, was presented with an outstanding achievement award for working 10 years without a lost-time incident.

An IADC NSC Associate Member Award recognising safety innovations was presented to NOV Brandt for its VSM 300 Shale Shaker. Runners-up included innovations from Abermed, ESS Support Services Worldwide, Universal Sodexho and Weatherford.

The Chairman’s Special Award went to Russell Robertson, who has been seconded from his employing company Transocean to Step Change in Safety. The award recognises Mr Robertson’s dedication on behalf of IADC through his 30-month period of secondment.

2008 IADC vice chairman Claus V Hemmingsen of Maersk Contractors addressed the attendees, and the industry guest speaker was Graham Robinson, worksite hazard project manager for Shell’s “Goal Zero” team.
