I’m sure that many of you follow industry analyst’s predictions in order to get a sense as to where companies will be investing their capex, opex, and stratex. For those of you who follow analyst Jill Feblowitz of IDC Energy Insights, the number one prediction for the Oil & Gas Industry this year is “new regulatory requirements will drive increased investment by oil and gas companies in Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) system enhancements, upgrades, and replacements. Incident tracking and management, corrective action and regulatory reporting will be addressed first and will depend on application integration”. Although this prediction is specific to the Oil & Gas industry, we are seeing this need across all asset intensive industries.
The primary objective of Health, Safety, and Environment initiatives is to reduce overall risk, to comply with Federal, State and Local regulations, and to create a safe yet efficient operating environment for a company. Achieving this objective is as much about standardizing HSE practices as integrating these practices with day-to-day operations management.
