OUR CLIENTS & PROJECTS
Just a few of the international clients and the support we provided
Shell Europe asked to coach their senior leadership team to improve its safety culture.
Although safety was truly felt a high value, it had become an intellectual, calculative exercise without the required passion.
A project was started called "Winning Hearts & Minds". This was founded on 3 major legs:
Develop Team HSE Plans by those who actually do the work ('Bottoms-up')
Give clear direction and empowerment through Leadership ('Top Down')
Understand Human Behaviours by implementing the Hearts & Minds tools ('Behaviour Based Safety')
Just 18 months into the project, the number of incidents were reduced by 50%. Operational team leaders felt more empowered; contractors felt more engaged and respected.
During an interim assignment, Engie requested to review their Dutch management team with the objective to restructure reporting lines and accountabilities, and thus enhance its effectiveness.
Following a few major events in Germany and the Netherlands, they also asked to lead an in-deph investigation to the root causes of project related contingencies and to advise on preventative measures.
As a long-term client, they additionally contracted several assignments, e.g.:
Support their Engineering department;
Review & Audit Safety Critical Elements for 26 Offshore Production Installations & 2 NOBLE Drilling Rigs;
Develop a Marine Operations Manual & Pressure Test Philosophy document.
BAM Civiel approach me to act as interim manager for their HSE departments and to implement a cultural improvement plan. For the latter, a 12-step programme was developed that consisted of:
Enhancing a reporting culture
