Executive Director-OISD

Dear Colleagues,

Oil and Gas industry is ready to roll out BS VI grade fuel, which shall help in tackling serious pollutions levels. I am sure that oil and gas industry shall achieve many more such milestones with renewed enthusiasm and zeal to take this industry to the zenith of excellence. Entire OISD team is committed to timely completion of all Pre-commissioning Safety Audits of BS-VI related revamped/ additional facilities.

Though the number of accidents in oil and gas industry is showing downward trend, overall safety performance is yet to achieve satisfaction level. I would like to highlight that findings of the recent accidents in industry indicate lapses in internal system and controls – Job Safety Analysis; Work Permit System; Toll Box talks; Maintenance & Inspection; Supervision; competency; Internal audit; Safety meetings and Management Review. Leadership need to introspect and strengthen internal system and controls for achieving highest standard of Safety.

Leaders must cultivate and drive Safety culture through a strong system of reporting unsafe acts and unsafe conditions (UAUC) and taking actions on them. This will help to mitigate risks by identifying hazards, putting suitable safeguards in place and assuring that safeguards are functioning.

Towards knowledge enhancement, we organise number of workshops viz. enhancing capability of Internal Auditors, Process Safety, Mounded Storage Vessels and its CP System etc. for industry. We shall be organising National level OISD Workshop along with Oil Industry Safety Awards shortly. We solicit industry cooperation and whole hearted support in terms of sponsorship and nomination of delegates.

I would urge our esteemed readers to visit our website and go through the section on Case Studies, Safety Alerts, which carry lots of safety information. I would like to reassure that OISD is working relentlessly with the Industry with the ultimate objective of enhancing overall safety of this vital energy sector thereby increasing productivity and energy security.

I would like to express our gratitude to each one of you for the trust you have reposed in this Safety Organisation.
