SPE Technical Report March 2018
The oil and gas industry was started by visionaries and wildcatters who foresaw a brighter future and were willing to scrap the status quo and take steps to achieve their vision. For the industry to reposition itself for the future today, it needs an injection of the same willingness to cast aside some strongly held legacy beliefs and practices and take the next leap forward – achieving zero harm.
The concept of zero harm is not a new one in the oil and gas industry, which has for more than two decades set HSE goals that are focused on the reduction of incidents with the ultimate intended outcome that no one be hurt and no releases occur. However, the challenge for decades has been the alignment of industry on an effective pathway to achieve these goals. To attain zero harm, a step change in thinking, performance, and alignment around HSE is required across the industry.
Between 2009 and 2016, SPE facilitated a series of global sessions to develop ideas for the continued improvement of HSE in the industry. These sessions brought together leaders representing diverse disciplines from across the industry, government, and academia to discuss a simple question: How can the oil and gas industry achieve zero harm?
