Deployment Best Practices – Ensuring Safety and Professional Growth For The Oil and Gas Crew

Oil Rig Jobs Texas

The oil and gas industry is an exciting and challenging industry, and yet at the same time, a very hazardous one.  The crew members are expected to work 24X7 over an extended period of time, more often in extremely hostile terrains in geographically diverse locations.  At the remote sites, dangers manifest in the form of exposure to harmful gases and radiations, and handling dangerous machinery.  The long periods of separation from civilization during the hitch periods too take their toll on their emotional and psychological well-being.

At a time of talent crunch, organizations worldwide are going the extra mile to retain and engage their talent as part of their recruitment and deployment strategy.  This becomes all the more imperative for the Oil and Gas Industry which records one of the highest risk of job-related injuries and fatalities compared to other industries.

Get Global, a reputed upstream oil and gas service provider, is committed to implement best practices in crew deployment to ensure their physical and emotional safety. We make sure that our staff receive constant training to align with industry, and they have ample professional space to grow their careers, while also achieving work-life balance.

Here are Some of The Deployment Practices We Follow

Collaborations With Local Emergency Response Services

GET deploys its oil and gas crew in projects across the globe including the USA, the MENA region and Asian countries.  In all areas of our operations, we have partnered with local emergency response organizations to ensure that our oil and gas crew gain access to immediate professional help to handle emergencies efficiently, on time and successfully.

Safety Training Programs

As another oil and gas crew deployment best practice, we implement a personal approach to safety training. We make sure that during the safety trainings, team members get to know each other,and develop personal connections, trust and camaraderie amongst themselves. Our safety training modules are constantly evolving and always aligned to international regulations and compliance, and as well as local mandates. Given that it’s extremely difficult for the crew to undertake training in the traditional setting, we also undertake remote training via the Internet, and instructor-led trainings onsite, if the need so arises.

Constantly Monitoring Workers Psychological Well-Being

It goes without saying that working in adverse environments is much different than working in the comfort of a corporate office. These differences in working conditions mandate mind-set, behavior and attitudes that are unique to the environment. Accordingly, our oil and gas employee training programs go well beyond upskilling and re-skilling to instilling a sense of community amongst the workers to make it easier for them to form connections and offset the loneliness arising from being away from their family and friends during the long periods. Second, the community becomes the first port of call for workers to seek advice and ask for help. Beyond the community itself, GET has in place smooth communication channels for the crew members to seek immediate one-to-one help from our healthcare advisors. Further, we also conduct regular in house surveys to glean insights into the ‘mood of our employees’ and accordingly propose remedial action.

Familiarize The Workforce With The Project Sites

Before deploying the crew to a work location, we first make sure to familiarize them with the project site so that they are aware of the socio-cultural background and religious practices of the country. This is to ensure that they respect local practices and they find it easier to integrate with the local communities. Second, we also train them to the local mandates and regulatory environments, along with the global compliance that they have to follow at all times.  All our crew members are given a written communication of the procedures to follow, hazards they need to be aware of, their shift handovers, and the emergency contacts at the project site.

In-Vehicle Monitoring

In the oil and gas industry, a vast majority of fatalities can be attributed to the accidents from motor vehicles. GET ensures that all vehicles used in the transport of human resources and material have in place in-vehicle monitoring systems to monitor driving behavior and analyses issues. We use these insights to improve our vehicle safety programs and as well as work-related trainings.

These are just a few aspects of our oil and gas crew deployment services. While deploying crew at a project site, we ensure that each member is well-aligned to the need of the project, has the necessary experience, and if not, is well-trained to fit in their new role with dexterity.  Before deploying a crew member, we collate all their information, such as their work history, any work-related incidences and other communication notes. Our HR team then analyzes the information and gleans the necessary insights to ensure they are trained for the project.  We also take care of the necessary expenses. To illustrate with an example, for oil and gas jobs in Qatar, we ensure that the crew has their visas and other necessary clearances. We also take care of their travel and accommodation expenses, and any health or safety expenses that could occur due to any accident at the worksite.
