The Schlumberger Injury Prevention Program (SIPP) consists of five modules: introduction and body mechanics, body protection techniques, hands, handling and lifting, and stepping. It strengthens injury-prevention behavior through demonstration, practices, and quizzes. Trainers are certified internally through a comprehensive five-day program that includes theory and practical sessions. An implementation by one geographical area is not only decreasing incident rates, but is also increasing the use of good working habits by employees.
This paper shares best practices based on the program implementation, including the experiences of how the training works by introducing the program to employees, developing trainers, participating in the workshops, mentoring activities, and by active participation in observation, auditing, and campaigning. In addition, the paper addresses the issue of providing the training program to clients and several universities to help them prevent injury.
The direct result is a decrease in the average number of injury incidents since implementation began. The indirect result is the employee's awareness of reducing risk in daily activities. They know that what they do at work will affect their quality of life off the job.
