Safety and Training Supervisor

Noble Drilling

As a STS, my primary goal is to leverage the installation management toward creating an injury free culture and work to develop better safety leaders by providing leadership and direction. I also identify the principal challenges to creating an injury free installation culture and establish clear learning and development targets for the management and functional heads to become highly competent safety leaders. In these areas I monitor progress and produce periodic performance updates and provide feedback to the management regarding the challenges successfully addressed and those remaining. In addition, I make sure that the personnel are all working towards being more competant in their jobs. This entails periodic inspection of individual required certificates and licenses as prescribed by: US Coast Guard, US Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, as well as other regulatory bodies including international governmental agencies when working in their appropriate jurisdictions.  I am responsible for all training for personnel on board, using PowerPoint, printed material, or practical application for First Aid/CPR, blood bourn pathogens, incipient fire, as well as other courses. For those courses that had to be outsourced, I set up those courses with third party vendors.  In my duties I also complete daily, weekly, and monthly HSE reports, capturing lead and lag indicators,  including safety proactive efforts, stop cards, environmental impacts sheets, hazardous and non-hazardous waste disposal, and am also the responsible party for the installation permit-to-work program.
