The ISP has tracked safety and accident information for the drilling industry since 1962. It provides a record of data reflecting accident experience that can be compared with other industries, helping drillers identify the causes and trends of drilling industry injuries and providing a means of recognizing rig crews for outstanding safety performance. It also provides a benchmark for global HSE performance across the drilling industry.
Patrick Kearley, Global VP HSE and Training for Ensign Energy Service, will serve as Onshore Chairman for the ISP Subcommittee, and Paul Finnie, Director Global HSE for Diamond Offshore, will represent the offshore members. The subcommittee is proactively looking for representatives from onshore and onshore drilling contractors to participate with the goal of creating a finished product that is fully representative of industry opinion. Its first meeting will be held on 9 May.
