Call for Challenges

The conference program committee for the 2024 IADC HSE and Sustainability Europe Conference would like to continue with the novel approach to securing topics and speakers for the upcoming conference.

Instead of the traditional Call for Abstracts, the committee would like to present a Challenge to our membership to identify a problem or challenge you are facing related to HSE, security or sustainability within your companies that need a solution. The conference program committee members hope to find some creative solutions to these challenges.

Members of the conference program committee will identify issues that will be vetted during the two-day conference, providing maximum take-home value for attendees. Once the problems/challenges have been collected, the committee members will meet to select the problems that will be put forward for the conference agenda. The deadline for submissions is 18 March 2024.

The Program Committee for the 2024 IADC HSE & Sustainability Europe Conference & Exhibition sends out a request to all colleagues for their assistance by identifying your toughest sustainability or HSE challenge.

What is the Sustainability or HSE challenge within your organization that you cannot find a solution to?

Suggested possible categories for challenges could be:

  • The impact on safety of increased number of new employees / higher turnover,
  • Development of relevant leading indicators,
  • The impact of the energy transition on what we do,
  • Sustainability reporting (e.g., CSRD and for SEC),
  • Cyber Security,
  • AI,
  • Human Factors and Human Performance,
  • Mental Health,
  • Heat Stress,
  • Learning from other industries,
  • And very likely several others that you may identify.

Please formulate your challenge and share it with us. We will organize the next IADC HSE & Sustainability Europe Conference around those challenges. As you formulate the challenge, please identify the Problem or Challenge, any Complications and Solutions you may have tried.

An example of a challenge (in the first category above) could be the following (offered by Valaris):

Despite great efforts over many years, the industry is not seeing a decrease in the number of fatalities and life-alerting injuries. There have been several suggestions as to why this may be so, including the fact that many incidents involve new and inexperienced crew. How do we as an industry address this, and how do we develop new talent to be safe and competent as quickly as possible? 

The general reduction in skills and experience within the industry may reflect:

    • Recruitment is becoming much more challenging, either due to people having left the industry that do not want to return, or younger generations that do not see it as an ethical career choice, or one with longevity.
    • We are now routinely dealing with more short-service employees, clearly impacting team competency and stretching our supervisors. 

Solutions tried
Our company has developed a greenhand referral and training/coaching program. We would be happy to share some details and learnings from this during the conference if required. Entrants can only join the program through an employee referral. If successful, Valaris will offer industry training courses, and the greenhands will spend several days completing internal training and familiarization at one of our facilities, before they are assigned to a rig and start their career offshore.

We will engage with experts and various companies and organizations that could provide a solution or an idea about a possible solution. Please note that we cannot handle all challenges and allow us the discretion to select the challenges we find most relevant. We look forward to your participation as we take this novel approach to setting a relevant and timely conference agenda.

Please send all challenges by 18 March 2024 using the form below.
