Short Service Employees
A tool for managing risks associated with Short Service Employees (SSE) on the rig site.
Project / Initiative
Short Service Employee Management – provide best practice tools for managing risks associated with Short Service Employees (SSE) on the rig site.
Statistics indicate that a significant number of the injuries experienced in the industry (80%) are sustained by employees within their first 6 months of employment.
Develop and roll out a tool to manage SSE that can be referenced by all contractors and used in conjunction with operators to prevent SSE incidents.
The Working Group has developed a Short Service Employee (SSE) Management Tool. This tool helps employers to keep an overview of the composition and skillset of the work crew to ensure that risks associated with SSE are identified and managed. The tool is simple, easy to interpret, visual, and uses a scoring system. It also provides guidance on SSE management.
