One of the key constraints in managing HSE risks is that HSE is often considered as a parallel activity which is owned by HSE professionals. Industrial mainstream employees do not easily realize the virtues of HSE and consider it as extra work to satisfy legal, statutory, corporate or voluntary requirements.
In order to manage the HSE risks effectively, it is important that HSE is integrated into the routine business operations and the business process whether it is oil and gas or any other industry. This integration is not an easy process as HSE is not widely understood by personnel.
The paper will consist of the best possible methodologies to ensure understanding and awareness on HSE by the mainstream personnel so that there is an effective buy-in and subsequent effective implementation and include many time – tested practical examples and tools and techniques like critical task identification and analysis, risk assessment of permit to work etc..
To summarize, the paper will comprise of three sub headings:
Integration of HSE in the routine Operations of Oil and Gas industries
Integration of HSE in the business processes of Oil and Gas industries and
Integration of HSE in the project lifecycles of Oil and Gas Industries
The paper will focus on tools and techniques that can be best adapted for integration of HSE in every stage of operations from concept to commissioning and the operating stage in the business of Oil and Gas industries, which in turn, will guarantee the highest degree of HSE compliance.
The target audience will include personnel from Operations, Maintenance, HSE and Projects disciplines in the Oil/ Gas industries as well as other similar industries.
