Every company does their utmost to keep their people, equipment and assets secure. Each individual is also conscientious in protecting themselves first, followed by everything that they are responsible for.
Thankfully, crises are rare from an individual or corporate standpoint. Most emergencies are either false alarms, or dealt with quickly and efficiently.
Our definition of a true crisis or emergency is an incident that is new or unfamiliar to your existing company or team. Perhaps you have an unblemished safety record, but your company suddenly experiences a black swan event. (Or something that was previously seen to present negligible risk). This real and present crisis or emergency will be a special set of circumstances for you and your team.
There are very few emergencies that could be truly categorized as unique, almost everything has been experienced before – by someone, somewhere.
When you face a safety crisis that is outside your area of expertise and competency then you will have a few choices:
- Hire a specialist team consisting of individuals who have a track record in the mitigations required.
- Hire a new project manager and perhaps a few team leaders to help guide your existing workers.
- Hire a specialist unit who can come in and take control of the due diligence, and emergency planning. This plan can then be co-ordinated to your existing staff with guidance and supervision where needed.
Whichever of these three solutions you decide upon, S-energy Consultants can help. We can offer a free initial consultation to help you decide which of these three approaches suit your existing corporate structure and for the unique challenge at hand.
Our areas of proficiency and expertise include, but are not limited to:
Crisis & Emergency Management (Onshore & Offshore)
If faced with an urgent challenge, beyond your capabilities, you can contact us. We can mobilize some of the most experienced and respected specialists in the industry, who then can hand pick the required team members.
Project Risk Management
As you are probably aware, the control of an emergency can become exponentially more challenging and dangerous as time passes. If your existing workers are not used to this, you need to call in help so that you can create new protocols in advance.
Risk Projection Management
In similar fashion to the previous point, accurate risk analysis, with up-to-date knowlege of all potential threats will offer time. Event projection will facilitate system engineering and decide what needs to be carefully managed.
Crisis & Emergency Management training
We all think that we can work under pressure, and will react efficiently in a crisis, but until you have that experience, you don’t really know. This is another area where advice from more experienced people is invaluable, and potentially life saving.
Critical Failure Surveys
We can offer emergency preparation surveys. Our ‘fresh eyes’ might see risks that have been overlooked by otherwise competent staff that have become familiar with your systems. We are able to draw upon comprehensive experience from experts that are well known to us.
Harsh Environment/Offshore Project Management
An offshore or harsh environment project has completely different challenges and requirements to more comfortable working conditions. We can offer project management for those who are not completely proficient.
Our services range from having a single person come in to help oversee, organize or plan – to putting together a complete safety crew from top to bottom.
