Task Force Zero 2018
In order to succeed we must retain faith in our vision while at the same time confronting the most brutal facts of the current reality, as stated in the book "Good to Great" by Jim Collins. Our industry knows this challenge well. We remain committed to sending all of our people home safe every day while at the same time facing tough circumstances and challenges that present risk. Furthermore, the industry has gone through difficult times over the last few years with low oil prices, cost reductions and the significant changes that come in such times.
In the coming years we will see offshore facilities decommissioned and wells abandoned, as well as seeing new key players and exciting investments in existing facilities and developments for the future of the Danish North Sea. Change is inevitable and constant, and with change comes risk. Are we ready to deal with that risk? How can we ensure a resilient mindset in the face of such change and predictable distraction? Are we fit for the future? What will it take of us? What are the choices we will make both personally and professionally to bring about positive change in our ways of working?
Coming from various industries and walks of life, our 2018 speakers will cause us to think about the future by learning from past successes as well as failures. We will learn lessons from other industries and from leaders within our own industry. Actual events and in-depth experiences will show the value in confronting the difficulty of one´s situation while remaining committed to a vision of an injury free industry. All with the intention of leaving us in action to adapt, to develop ourselves and create a new era of safety leadership and new levels of safety performance.

prevent death and destruction. What happens if they don’t succeed? After
accidents, organizations typically issue new rules. These will work—until the next
accident. Again, new rules are issued and procedures are updated. Yet, the cycle
of accidents continues. Organizations and operators must need something more
than rules and procedures to prevent unpredictable accidents. The solution is
found in the principles of operating excellence.
Since the beginning of the space program, astronauts have been following
these principles and developing techniques to help flight crews stay alive and
accomplish dangerous missions in the unforgiving environment of space. In
Controlling Risk, you will learn how to operate better, work together, and improve
performance in your high-risk business to accomplish much more in your
Does it really make good business sense moving beyond processes and systems?
Does better safety really mean better business performance?
What does it take to embody leadership that shifts mind-set’s of over 5,500 staff, contractors, and subcontractors - operating in harsh technical, commercial and financial environments - driven by a historically influenced hierarchy culture - dominated by strong command and control, ‘semi-macho’ and blame behaviour styles across its leaders?
For the past 3 years, this has been the focus of my life, transitioning the safety leadership culture in Salym Petroleum Development, operating in Western Siberia. Leading and sponsoring this journey has had a profound impact on me as a business leader and person, and I believe we all have similar experiences and learning. By sharing these impact-points, let us all create truly Incident and Injury-Free environments, where ‘Care for People’ translates to safety, as well as business efficiency and performance.
Novo Nordisk is part of an industry that is used to working with systems, procedures and regulations. Having these in place is what supports Novo Nordisk in having safe products of the highest level of quality for the customers. When Novo Nordisk started its safety journey, Novo Nordisk began in the area it is the best at: systems. Safety and Occupational Health systems were developed to clarify the expectations and requirements of the staff. These safety systems have significantly reduced the number of incidents and injuries; howver, it is possible to see that systems alone are insufficient to take Novo Nordisk to the next steps in the safety journey. Something else is needed.
Like many industries, it is possible to see the need for engaging the staff in the values, behaviors, culture and leadership of safety.
By sharing Novo Nordisk´s experiences and it is engaged in safety in the Pharma industry, my hope is that we learn from one another, across industries, and have safer workplaces for the staff.
