Partnering across industries to enhance safety

Maersk Drilling is actively seeking new ways to collaborate across industries in safety approaches and technologies, including a recent study across the EU, looking at high-risk industries and the companies that have a Zero Accident Vision.

Partnering across industries to enhance safety

​At a recent event organised by the Danish Working Environment Board (DWEB), occupational health and safety was on the agenda. Accidents and accident prevention strategies were one of the key themes of the event, and Maersk Drilling was invited to share learnings and progress regarding our 'Team Zero' efforts with the other participants.

The event followed a European study which investigated 27 companies with a 'Zero Accident Vision' and how they dealt with: leadership buy-in, organisational commitment, communication strategies, changing safety cultures and sharing learnings. Maersk Drilling was an active participant in the study, where a key learning was the identification of a number of areas where a 'Vision Zero' approach is clearly unique from the traditional occupational health and safety management approaches.

"We periodically partner and share learnings with clients as part of our strategic engagements, but this event was our first external venue where we openly shared everything we are doing with our 'Team Zero' program – what works and what we still struggle with. The goal is to establish networks that go beyond Drilling Contractors and Oil Majors to find solutions," says Mike Andres, Head of HSSE Strategy in Maersk Drilling and continues,

"This conference has provided us with many new points of contact, radical new perspectives to take into consideration and a whole list of companies that wish to work together to enhance safety across various industries."

The difference between a real Zero Accident Vision and a cliché term

"Companies have been using Vision Zero approaches for decades, yet this is the first large scientific study looking into what makes it unique from traditional approaches, and to identify what success factors and good practices we can learn and share from these companies", explains Pete Kines, Senior Researcher in charge of the European study at the Danish National Research Centre for the Working Environment and continues,

"Vision Zero requires a commitment strategy from all leaders and workers that all occupational injuries and ill-health are preventable – from the conception and design phase, through to the planning and carrying out of work tasks. This conference focused on the fact that we now have relatively few fatal work-related accidents in Denmark, yet continue to have a high risk of serious non-fatal injuries. We've reached a level where traditional safety and health strategies in the changing world of work need to focus on not just technical systems, but also on the human and cultural aspects of organizations. Here is where a more holistic 'Vision Zero' comes into play," Kines concludes.

As part of the project, Pete also underwent OPITA's basic offshore safety introduction and emergency training (BOSIET), so that he will be able to visit a Maersk Drilling rig to see what a living and dynamic offshore safety culture looks & feels like first-hand.

"Maersk Drilling's active participation in this EU study and the following event has stressed the fact that we are not the only ones with a Vision Zero that would like to go beyond simple compliance to health and safety regulations  – so why not work together to achieve this?," Andres concludes.

Examples of best practices when implementing a Zero Accident Vision (ZAV)

• Make safety and health incidents business relevant

• Include Vision Zero commitment in recruiting processes

• Visible leadership – demonstrate commitment

• Have a relevant communication strategy at all organizational levels

• Have multifaceted and integrated OSH programs that allows and encourages decentralized initiatives
