Safety, Health and Environment Working Party Mission Statement

The mission of the IADC North Sea Chapter SHE Working Party is to provide a forum for local Chapter member representatives to raise and discuss Safety, Health and Environmental issues relevant to the North Sea drilling industry.  Its aims are to promote awareness of these issues and to facilitate the exchange of information that benefit local drilling and drilling services industries.

Functions of the NSC SHE Working Party include:

  • Exchanging information on Safety, Health and Environmental issues;
  • Reporting to representatives at Chapter meetings on issues where senior management involvement is required;
  • Representing IADC NSC members on industry bodies and workgroups as required, and interacting with other bodies such as Step Change, and other organizations associated with Safety, Health and the Environment.

SHE Working Party Structure

A member (or in the case of Joint Chairmanship, members) will be nominated by the North Sea Chapter to chair the SHE WP. SHE WP chairmen appointments will be approved at Chapter meeting level. The WP Chairman may at his discretion work with other SHE members to appoint sub-groups/task forces to oversee specific issues emanating from the SHE WP (e.g Working at Height Regulations).

SHE Working Party Meetings Policy

Attendance at SHE WP party meetings is open to IADC North Sea Chapter drilling contractor members and representatives from Step Change, however at the discretion of the Chairperson, meetings or portions thereof may be opened out for participation by IADC North Sea Chapter Associate Members.
