|Chairman's Message || |
I have great pleasure in introducing the DOIRC (Drilling Operations Incident Review Committee) meeting to all members and guests.
The DOIRC objectives are to review incidents, improve safety performance, promote safety awareness and demonstrate commitment to safety. It also provides an opportunity to promote lateral learning, generate active discussion, share best practices and provide positive feedback
The meeting is organised to emphasize on safety in the work place with an ultimate goal of achieving zero incidents. The DOIRC was not formed to allocate blame but to learn from incidents to prevent reoccurrence.
The first meeting was held on March 15th 2001 with QP contractors and service companies but has now grown to include all companies related to the Drilling Industry in Qatar.
Qatar Petroleum is committed to providing a safe working environment for all employees / contractors and strongly believes in the motto “If it is not Safe, Stop”.
I thank the Senior Management representatives of various companies for their commitment to the DOIRC as this demonstrates their commitment to safety. I also thank all the sponsors of the DOIRC meetings.
I sincerely hope that the DOIRC would provide the impetus required to achieve our target of zero incidents.
