In today’s oil and gas industry, employee safety remains the biggest area of concern. Learn how a human-centric approach and a risk-mitigation framework can help mitigate health and safety risks through digital work processes.

Recent research outlines two key challenges in the area of health and safety in Oil & Gas. The first is managing operations with a less experienced workforce, as younger workers are twice as likely to be injured on the job as experienced workers. The second is effectively operating complex processes with aging infrastructure.

More than half of global oil and gas production comes from assets beyond the midpoint in their lifecycles. The use of digital advancements to prevent loss of containment by detecting telltale anomalies, prevent personal injury and root out systemic safety hazards plays a crucial role in improving safety performance and avoiding major accidents. Among the advancements are:

  • Wearables and other digital hardware that can help minimize safety incidents.
  • Monitoring biometrics and alerting workers before they become dangerously mentally or physically fatigued.
  • Applying big data techniques to human behavior to enable causal analysis to find the root causes of accidents.
