Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

This webinar has been organized by the SPE HSSE-SR Health Subcommittee in collaboration with IOGP (International Oil and Gas Producers Association) /IPIECA (the global oil and gas association for environmental and social issues). The IOGP/IPIECA Health Committee has been in existence since 2003 and functions as a forum where their members can identify, debate and share best health practices. This committee develops guidance and recommendations on occupational, environmental and public health issues that are relevant to oil and gas industry organizations and the communities where they operate.

This webinar is intended to inform professionals who either manage health contracts or who have responsibilities in supporting contracts of this nature (Procurement, HSE professionals, etc.) that in the workplace, an effective health management system requires active and positive collaboration bewteen operators and contractors. Without such as system then there is the potential for:

Loss of life
Health-related accidents
Injuries and illness
Disruptions in operations
In 2015, to assist the operator and contractor relationship and to avoid potential confusion regarding responsibilities and expectations of both parties, the IOGP/IPIECA health committee published a guideline document entitled “Health Management Contract Guidelines for Clients and Contractors”. The document provides guidance on:

health management system elements, requirements and deliverables;
establishing roles and responsibilities between contractor(s) and client/operator;
health aspects related to the pre-qualification, bidding and execution phase; and
promoting transparency and effective communication on health management in contracts.
This webinar will involve key speakers from a leading service contractor, Eugene Toukam, Schlumberger VP HSE for Europe and Africa and a major healthcare company, Simon Hawthorne, VP Legal, and UnitedHealthcare Global Medical, providing examples of real problems that can occur in the absence of such a strategic contract management plan. Finally, Dr. Alex Barbey, International Health Coordinator, Schlumberger Limited, who chaired the IOGP/IPIECA health taskforce which produced the guideline will explain how utilization of the guidelines can avoid the issues described and prevent a negative impact due to deficiencies in contract management.
