Established safety models, such as behavior-based safety, commitment-based safety and relationship-based safety, involve important aspects of safety training. However, these elements may be missing a proper foundation, Dr Simon Goncharenko said. “As important as safety commitment may be, it cannot be effective or lasting unless it is anchored in something that is immovable, namely, one’s convictions,” he said at the 2016 IADC HSE&T Conference. Dr Goncharenko, Principal Consultant for Safeguard Solutions, said he believes that drilling contractors should lay this foundation with the Safety by Conviction model. It “ties the behavior change (in safety) to one’s convictions on a level that is deep enough to where the transformation is self-motivated and, thus, lasts a lifetime.”
