Safety Leadership - Greater results, because of you
The annual Task Force ZERO safety conference has always focused on inspiring leaders to respond in the safest way possible, and especially this year in a very challenging environment. Our psychical environment is no more or less safe because of the current oil price. In safety the choices we make are not based on the business environment; they are based on what we are committed to and what we consider the right things to do. Making a difference in terms of safety is up to you, it’s up to all of us. It always has been.
In the oil and gas industry we enjoy a reputation as one of the world’s safest and that is because of the people we can count on for safety leadership, for doing the right thing for safety and at every level of organizations. People are alive today because of actions you and we have taken. At the same time we all know that we are still on a journey and have a long way to go.
At this the 10th anniversary conference we will be looking at what our industry can learn from others who have faced similar challenges. We will discuss what should be expected from us as an industry and we will investigate different tools, means and convictions necessary to continue evolving reliable and consistent safety leadership.

Jan Willem came on board as the new CEO for Seaway Heavy Lifting in January 2013 when the company had just launched their Incident and Injury Free (IIF) journey a few months ago. He used this new safety approach not only to address and solve safety issues but also to create a new culture and work environment within SHL. Although there was not a lot of resistance to endeavour on an IIF journey in the first place it still took a strong personal stand and leadership to get the whole organisation believe in this approach. Top and middle management had to become IIF champions to provide safety leadership to the whole organisation – onshore and offshore. The company trained all of their employees and many subcontractors to develop a new safety attitude, to build a strong and authentic commitment to safety, to create an incident and injury free environment and what it takes to make this happen under all circumstances. Seaway Heavy Lifting is now producing best-in-class results not only within safety, and have created a new safety culture within their organisation.
This presentation tackles our re-definition of safety...but not in a boring way. In fact this presentation discusses the very idea that everything we have done this far on our performance excellence journey is important to moving us to the next place. Safety differently is additive. There is good news.
