Safety First

On drilling platforms and ships, the primary focus is always on safety. As soon as a crew arrives onboard, they will first be given a safety briefing and provided their protective gear. The start of every workday begins with a safety briefing along with the schedule for the day. Smoking is restricted only to designated areas, usually in the accommodation section of the rig. All pieces of equipment are repeatedly tested and labeled with a color code indicating that it was recently checked. Crew workers are expected to refrain from carrying certain articles like alcohol, matches and lighters onboard. Safety measures have to be followed meticulously by all workers and any compromise in this regard will not be tolerated.
