Systems Safety Management and Safety Culture

This guidance document was intended to enhance and supplement the 2009 Arctic Council’s Arctic Offshore Oil and Gas Guidelines (AOOGG), by focusing on providing tools and approaches for reducing the threat of catastrophic effects of major oil and gas related accidents, such as the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster.

Its purpose is to provide more targeted guidance on protecting the marine environment from major accidents by improving safety management systems and safety culture in Arctic offshore petroleum operations. PAME drew on investigations and recommendations from the Deepwater Horizon accident as well as numerous other investigations and hearings.

The PAME Working Group also benefited from discussions and recommendations from two specific workshops involving international experts from governments, various industries, academia, indigenous peoples organizations, and other Arctic stakeholders.

The report examines the importance of the over-arching issues of Coordination among Regulators and Safety Culture and focuses on some key issues and challenges, as well as some recommended actions or approaches that regulators should pursue for improving system safety when regulating or influencing the safety of offshore oil and gas operations in the Arctic for the following nine (9) Safety Management categories:
  • Continuous ImprovementRisk Assessment/Hazard Identification
  • Management of Change
  • Training and Competence for the Arctic
  • Accountability and Responsibility
  • Operating Procedures
  • Quality Assurance/Mechanical Integrity
  • Documentation and Reporting
  • Communications
