With increasing number of new entrants in the Nigerian Oil & Gas industry, there has been a visible challenge with Contract Safety Pre-qualification management, often leading to poor quality service delivery, increased cost, lost business time, incidents, contract cost/time variations, etc.
This paper is an attempt to further improve on safety of personnel and asset as well as increase productivity via improved HSE and Supply Chain processes during Contract Pre-qualification exercises.Methods, Procedures, Process
Experience from various organizations in Nigeria were analyzed viz-a-viz review of existing Safety Management System and Supply Chain delivery strategies.
Attempt is also made to identify common Contract Safety Pre-qualification challenges/gaps and to proffer strategies that could help organizations improve Contract Safety Pre-qualification processes.
HSE Management System performance of selected organizations were reviewed using internal & external Audit outcomes and other indicators as yard sticks. Extents of HSE and Supply Chain process interface benchmarked with leading and lagging indicators such as; 1
Cost & Time variation for contracts2
Rate of Reworks3
Number of Incidents (including Near Misses).Results, Observations, Conclusions
Effective delivery of Oil & Gas Contracts is largely dependent on efficient Safety Management. Contracts are the key means by which known and unknown, wanted and unwanted risks come into an organization. Entry of Unwanted risks can be checkmated via contracts by deploying effective ‘Contract Safety Pre-qualification’ process as an integral part of Supply Chain Management.
It was found that in most reactive safety culture environment, the following challenges affect Contract Safety Pre-qualification;
Non-existent/Ineffective Safety Management System
Ineffective Supply Chain Management processes
Short term cost focus
Ineffective Social Responsibility delivery strategy
The findings from this study could be an eye opener for investors currently working or planning to work in any environment where Regulatory enforcement and Safety culture is still developing.
Addressing these gaps as identified above is a sure way to improve Contract Safety Pre-Qualification. Recommendations from this study details strategies and tools for ensuring organizational effectiveness, eliminating unwanted risk, improving productivity and cost optimization.Novel/Additive Information
This resultant effect of reactive safety culture on Contract Safety Pre-qualification, with respect to its consequences on Supply Chain management processes, is here looked at from a new perspective and emphasis. Tools and techniques that have worked for for some organizations in Nigeria, are discussed for consideration by organizations facing such challenges.
