Video Tool for Safety Behaviour Monitoring TIS
11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
525 3rd Ave SW
Ground Level - Turner Valley Rooms
Winterhawk Technologies Ltd. and PTAC Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada invite you or a representative of your organization to attend a Technology Information Session on a proposal for an investigation into the use of video equipment as a safety behaviour modification and monitoring tool.
It is generally accepted that the oil and gas industry in North America is struggling with finding, training and keeping personnel of all classifications including health and safety. A significant increase in demand for health and safety personnel has been brought about by: a) pressure to provide a zero-incident, accident-free workplace; b) domestic conventional and unconventional oil-and-gas production project expansion; and, c) regulatory requirements to provide evidence of work competency.
This increase in demand has largely outstripped the supply of available health-and-safety personnel, especially those with hands-on field experience. This proposed study considers a more effective utilization of existing health-and-safety personnel by providing them with a tool to assist with:
a) Monitoring and changing the safety behaviour or workers by focusing them on the task at hand;
b) Provision of a work-analysis tool that can be used to test standard and critical operating procedures;
c) Provision of a high-quality record for incident-investigation and analysis;
d) Provision of a proactive safety and training tool; and,
e) Provision of a contractor-employee monitoring tool.
TECHNOLOGY INFORMATION SESSION
The presentation will provide a technical description of the Winterhawk study and outline its benefits. Furthermore, a proposal for an industry consortium for the validation and field testing of the video tool will be discussed.
Working closely with participant operations and health-and-safety personnel, Winterhawk will visit field-trial sites to introduce site personnel to the project and discuss project objectives. With input from site personnel a standard or critical operating procedure will be selected. Camera and recording equipment will be installed and the chosen job recorded. The raw data will then be reviewed with site personnel, who will be asked to offer an opinion on the usefulness of the technology. Each site visit would likely span two to three days.
PTAC CONSORTIUM PROJECTS
PTAC consortium projects are a cost-effective way to accelerate the uptake of new technologies. Costs are shared by a number of stakeholders, thus reducing the expense for individual participants. Technology providers achieve faster growth because they reach a number of operators with a single investment.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
• Technology directors, managers, advisors, coordinators and specialists
• Health and safety specialists, coordinators and managers
• Companies performing health and safety assessments and surveys
• Service companies
• Government policy advisors and managers
• Experienced professionals interested in learning about new technologies
