The US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) announced the launch of SafeOCS on 5 May at OTC in Houston. SafeOCS is a voluntary, anonymous near-miss reporting program. BSEE is urging the drilling industry to actively participate by providing data that can be analyzed collectively to identify industrywide safety issues and trends. In this video from OTC, DC Editorial Coordinator Alex Endress talks with BSEE Associate Director Allyson Anderson about features of SafeOCS and how individuals and companies can get involved.
A website for the new program is still under construction, but a hotline has already been established at 1-844-738-9OCS.
