The Safety Management Program has been developed in conjunction with the Drilling and Completions Committee (DACC) to assist industry in maintaining the minimum training levels identified in IRP 7: Standards for Wellsite Supervision of Drilling Completions & Workovers. (DACC is a joint industry/government committee consisting of oil and gas industry associations and government agencies that are stakeholders in this industry sector.)
This refresher program is designed to ensure that wellsite supervisors and prime contractors maintain a high level of awareness of their responsibilities and roles with respect to safety management and regulatory compliance at the wellsite.
Key legislated rules and industry practices for Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan are discussed and summarized in an index with references so that the wellsite supervisor/prime contractor can research further details as needed.
The program covers responsibilities for health and safety legislation, health and safety program elements, hazard identification, risk assessment and control, inspections, incident investigation, emergency response and leadership skills, with particular emphasis on regulatory changes and key industry issues from the preceding three years.
