BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN TWO COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SAFETY CULTURE
Assistant Salvage Master Richard Robertson shares his thoughts and experiences.
“Last year I was involved in the refl oating of the Transocean Winner, an oil rig that had run aground off the Western Isles of Scotland. Our client being Transocean, an offshore oil and gas company, meant safety was at the forefront of any planning or operation. Given that all our operations are permeated with safety as well, this should not have been a problem. However, when someone else has a different defi nation of safety, this can pose a dilemma.
“THIS ISN’T EXACTLY NINA, GUYS."
