A view of construction from the personal perspective of experiences in the Oil & Gas sector. In this webinar, Peter will share lessons learned from some of the world’s largest disasters and major economic cycles including:
- Importance of keeping it simple – Right People – Doing Things Right – Right Time
- Silo behaviours creates cost, inefficiencies and risk
- Leveraging technology and sharing data within GDPR constraints
- Focus on efficiency and performance improvement yields safety benefits
- Ensuring best practice is routine – enterprise / project and potentially sector wide
- Linking SQEP / compliance and creating efficiencies
At this critical time for the construction, the key question will be whether the UK Construction sector can turn a crisis into an opportunity. Peter is no stranger to crisis and on the learning that comes from this. He advised international investors on Macondo (Deepwater Horizon Gulf of Mexico disaster) and the likelihood of BP and key players being found grossly negligent. He was offshore in close proximity to the Piper Alpha disaster where 167 people lost their lives in the North Sea and has been heavily involved in Competence Assurance and Compliance Management ever since.
Despite Peter’s wider experience of danger in the Congolese jungle, North Sea’s highest risk oilwells, Chinese unsafe rigs, world’s deepest gold mine, disused UK mine workings, (fatality on the first day at each mine worked), the Eastern Front building bulk fuel installations to defend against Spetnaz attacks (etc), ironically the most dangerous place he’d ever been was his new home with live gas issuing from an inherently dangerous building. He referred the experience to the Grenfell Disaster Inquiry.
