https://youtu.be/MIJ6aIKifL4 A clear mental model is a critical tool for planning, briefing and (hopefully not!) troubleshooting โ€ฆ especially where managing change may impact pressure control equipment configuration or function. And, of course, tools that enable you to share that mental model with crew members and stakeholders are a valuable resource for ensuring people are aware and prepared for the planned operation. Pre-prepared drawings for rig-up and fluid flow are key part of the operation document package โ€ฆ but what tools do you have for planning and briefing for variations to the intended sequence…Read more

https://youtu.be/Z4j7ugpcDRA When preparing your team or crew for planning, briefing or even some group coaching, it is important to focus on the message and focus on features that are necessary (for context and technical relevance). In the world of well control, being clear on which valves or rams are to be operated is crucial โ€ฆ our latest iteration of gate valve and rams design not only allows the barriers to be identified (or customised), but you can interchange them using the Torx driver supplied with each full setโ€ฆ.

https://youtu.be/pZ6ecnfo9HE We all know that preparation is the foundation for a successful operationโ€ฆ. Back in the day, crossovers (missing, wrongly specified, uncertified or damaged) could be a source of operational upset (eh, Nigel!). The costly and disruptive experience gained by those directly involved generally meant it would be unlikely that they would ever repeat such a lack of preparation. Checklists and similar procedural tools help greatly, but how can we coach, practice or simulate such a critical step??  With a little thought and simple physical props, the critical steps in preparation and the…Read more

An awareness of simple components is the first step toward understanding how complex systems work!

https://youtu.be/OJG9iqsHl_o The most complex systems are reliant on the correct selection and operation of simple components. How the functions, operating specifications and limitations of these critical components interact to create a safe and reliable system can often, at first glance, be difficult and potentially confusing โ€“ especially for new hires on accelerated learning curves. Simple tools, like physical props, used as an aid during work group activities like pre-op meetings, safety moments and operations improvement sessions provide a mixed-media blended-learning experience that is engaging and effective. And donโ€™t forget, understanding how components work…Read more
