Case Study

The Problem

Is the front line crew capable of managing, supervising and managing safety critical tasks?


Is the crew competent enough to form barrier to prevent any major accident?


Shell must have a system that includes the setting of appropriate competence standards, assessment and reassessment, which Shell was lagging.


There must be a specific link between Safety Critical Tasks, roles and responsibilities and a targeted comprehensive management system
