Environment 24/7

Over the past two decades safety has become a core value within most sectors of the oil and gas industry. With increased understanding that, in many cases, safety and the environment go hand in hand, environmental training courses are now being developed just as safety programs were in the past. Moreover, environmental performance awards now are being given as industry seeks new ways to encourage better protection of the environment. However, “Environmental Culture” is not where it should be in most companies. The reasons vary, but perhaps the two biggest obstacles are: (1) the lack of understanding of what environmental culture means or should look like, and (2) senior management of many companies have not bought into, or do not recognize the critical role they play in creating such a culture.

Environment 24/7 is the sequel to Safety 24/7—Building an Incident-Free Culture, which is a fictional story of a manager in an organization plagued with injuries and fatalities who is given 120 days to create a culture of safety.

Environment 24/7 takes the fictional story to the next level by demonstrating many of the principles used to successfully change people’s behavior toward safety are key to developing a culture of environmental responsibility and accountability.
