Keynote speaker Lincoln Eldridge challenged DCIIRP participants to think differently about learning from incidents.  After an incident, those who seek to learn have the benefit of perfect clarity in their understanding of the incident consequence.  However, those who were involved in the activity prior to the incident don’t have the same advantage.  They cannot see the future with the same clarity afforded by those with hindsight.  Lincoln proposed an alternate way of learning from incidents.

Safer Together’s Rig Site Safety Working Group (RSSWG) conducted the 11th Drilling and Completions Industry Incident Review Panel (DCIIRP) on November 8.  Representatives of companies from the Queensland CSG drilling and completions community gathered to hear presentations from Operators and Contractors about recent incidents and to share lessons learnt.  Several presentations were focused on innovations that will improve safety in the Queensland drilling and completions sector.

The event was kindly hosted by Santos and Nitschke Group.  Jonathan Nistchke, Managing Director Nitschke Group “From our perspective at Nitschke, we are honoured to be part of this event.  It is very satisfying to know that we are actively contributing to safety in our Industry.  We encourage our colleagues in the Contracting community to put your hand up to host a future event”.
