The Wells department in Brunei Shell Petroleum (BSP) achieved 1 year without a recordable case injury to any of its combined staff and contractor work force. Throughout the year, there was an average of some 350 BSP Wells staff and 750 contractor staff that participated in BSP's land and offshore oilfield activities. In this article the authors' hope is to convince you to adopt similar processes in your organization to improve the safety performance of your operations. Furthermore, the processes outlined in this paper can be used immediately by any operator, group of operators, and contractors who work co-operatively together with the aim of reducing injury rates in their circle of influence.

Since the initial implementation, the BSP and the Contractor Group safety statistics have improved dramatically over the last 2-year period as can be seen in Figure 1 below.
