Principles of Process Safety Leadership from Scapa Energy
Scapa Energy supported us with an assessment against the Principles of Process Safety Leadership, which provides an industry wide framework to drive continuous improvement in process safety performance. Scapa Energy worked closely with us to develop an assessment framework, and then engaged with a wide range of people from all levels of the organisation to complete the review. Their findings were clearly presented. They highlighted areas of strength, and also identified clear priorities for us to drive continuous improvement of process safety management within our upstream operations.
