IOGP and IADC have launched a survey to assess the current extent and use of non-technical skills and behaviours in well operations teams. Their collaborative aim: to learn how these skills are used and understood within the industry.
Non-technical skills are the cognitive, social and personal resource skills that complement technical skills and safety performance. They include situation awareness, decision-making, communication, teamwork, leadership and stress management.
The employment of these skills in high-hazard industries reduces the potential for errors. And if errors do arise, then those involved can mitigate and manage the situation.
The survey data should help IOGP assist organizations to embed the necessary non-technical skills, behaviours and attitudes in well operations teams, thereby enhancing future approaches to improving safety.
