Abstract

Safety culture is not easy to define since it consists of beliefs and assumptions of every worker shared at the organization. What is the safety culture implied at the drilling and work over offshore operation? Using the Westrum model for safety culture (pathological, reactive, calculative, proactive, and generative), at what stage of safety culture does the drilling and work over offshore operation work? This paper studies the level of safety culture using the survey was based on the Loughborough University Safety Climate Survey (LSCAT) which identified four areas: organizational context, social environment, individual appreciation, and work environment. Method: the assessment will measure the prevailing safety culture from these data: employee attitude surveys also referred to as the safety climate questionnaire; face to face interviews; focus discussion groups; structured observations in the form of behavioral observations and situational audits to explore the effectiveness of the safety management systems. The assessment was conducted to 167 respondents from office personnel and field personnel. Results: on average, drilling and work over operation safety culture profile standard at 8.3 points (excellence level) or at generative level, with seven of the nine dimensions are rated as excellence and two dimensions are rated as strong. Discussion: seven of the nine dimensions which are rated excellence are: management commitment, communication, priority for safety, supportive environment, involvement, personal priorities and need for safety, personal appreciation of risk. Two dimensions which rated strong are: work environment and safety rules and procedures. Impact on Industry: drilling and work over is considered as high-risk industry, the understanding of it safety culture and how to achieve high safety level can be shared across the industry for learning experience.
