Procedural Adherence: October 2017 IADC Human Factors Conference

Procedural Adherence: IADC human factors conferenceProcedural Adherence is the topic Kaufman Global president Jerry Timpson will speak on at this year’s IADC Human Factors Conference and Exhibition. The conference takes place 17-18 October at the Moody Gardens Hotel in Galveston, Texas.

Mr. Timpson will present during the 10:45-11:15 am session on Tuesday, 17 October. His presentation is entitled: On Procedural Adherence. Procedural Adherence is about behaviors. Many organizations focus on the technical side of procedural adherence (documentation and training), but don’t do so well with the behavioral aspect. Often the first indicator of a procedural or process problem is when a major malfunction occurs, a catastrophic event. Smaller, less obvious issues result in major loss, but are often not addressed at all. To improve outcomes, we must shift values, engage the organization in different ways and establish new behaviors that are leading indicators of procedural and process adherence.

For a preview of this topic, download our On Procedural Adherence white paper from our Resources page.

Conference attendees are invited to connect with us in Galveston to discuss how Kaufman Global helps client in the oil and gas industry leverage Lean and Continuous Improvement methods to create a workplace of safety and operational excellence. Drop us a line and set up a time to say hello!
