Process

A RIGOROUS ASSESSMENT

WDI has instituted several safety processes designed to produce continuous
improvement in our overall safety performance. These include:

Take Five

Risk Assessment Process

The take five risk assessment process is designed to train
employees to consider the impact of their actions on
themselves and others before they undertake a task.
It requires employees to:

STOP – Engage their brains before they act.
LOOK – Identify any hazards in their work areas.
ASSESS – What damage could these hazards cause.
MANAGE – Implement controls, tell others.
SAFELY – Complete the task.

If employees are unable to complete any of the above actions,
they are instructed to stop work, notify their respective
supervisors and wait for further instructions.

RADAR

Observation Process

The RADAR Observation Process comprises five steps:

RECOGNISE - Identify the at-risk condition or behavior.
APPROACH - Approach the person(s) at risk.
DISCUSS -Share your concern for their safety and listen to their response.
AGREE - Agree on a solution. If unable to do so, stop work and contact the supervisor.
REPORT - Complete a RADAR card and submit it for recording.

RADAR

EIGHT IMPORTANT STEPS

These steps are designed to help people recognize at-risk conditions and behaviors and communicate with their coworkers to correct the situation. The RADAR Observation Process is based on WDI Rules To Live By that address every area of safety. When followed, they have the potential to make zero incidents a reality. They include:

driving when I am feeling fatigued.

I will NEVER use my mobile phone
when driving, or drive distracted.

WDI will make excellence a way of life. It will permeate every decision, every action, every policy and every system. We will become the world’s premier land drilling company because we will settle for nothing less.

Consistent with this policy WDI will:

1. Use our 8 Values of:

> Put Safety First
> Be Reliable
> Continuously Improve
> Take Pride in our Work

Mark Bedford President
WDI

Every WDI employee has not only the right but the obligation to stop any action or activity he or she believes to be unsafe. This includes identifying and correcting unsafe conditions or weaknesses in the QHSSE system. Once Stop Work Authority has been exercised, no work shall resume until all safety issues or concerns have been adequately addressed and controls implemented to the satisfaction of everyone involved in the task or operation.

Employees who exercise Stop Work Authority will always have the support of management and will never receive any form of punishment or retribution. Supervisors are encouraged to lead by example and to demonstrate to subordinates that they will support them when they exercise their authority to stop an unsafe act.

Stop Work Authority has the potential to avert many problems, some with disastrous consequences. It is an essential component of the WDI QHSSE Management System.

WDI is committed to operational excellence, which we achieve through demonstrated leadership, ethical behavior and adherence to high standards. We endeavor to conduct all operations in a manner that protects the environment, the communities in which we live and work, and the integrity of the Company’s human, physical and financial resources. Consistent with this policy, WDI:

Holds safety, health, reliability, quality and protection of the environment as core values.
Never subjects our employees, processes, customers or local communities to unnecessary risk.
Seeks continuous improvement in reliability, quality, health, safety and environmental performance.
Demonstrates personal commitment to the prevention of employee injury, ill health and Non-Productive Time (NPT)
Communicates and consults with our employees, interested parties and customers on safety, health and the protection of the environment.
Actively seeks ways to minimize, if not eliminate, identified service-related product risks, workplace hazards and pollution associated with our products and services.
Complies with all applicable laws, regulations and standards. Where adequate laws do not exist, we will apply our own standards that reflect our commitment to safety, health, reliability, quality and the protection of the environment.
