Address Petrofac, , Scotland, UK
International oilfield service provider Petrofac has six core values at the heart of its operation – the safety
of its workforce being at the top of the agenda.
So when Bob Banks, an offshore mechanical technician, invented a new safety barrier for use in the oil and gas industry, his employer was keen to find out more.
In fact, Petrofac is now in the process of promoting the system – known as the Work Area Safety Pack – to all its UK installations and is sponsoring the wider roll-out of the equipment to help raise its profile within the oil and gas industry, including other parts of Petrofac’s global operations.
Key to the permit-to-work system are the safety barriers that are deployed daily by maintenance technicians, operators and contractors around worksites.
However, there are a number of problems associated with the mixture of barrier types presently available – such as plastic chain, barrier tape and braided rope – including credibility, compatibility, ease of use, ownership, safety and general tidiness.
That is why Mr Banks set out to create a safety barrier that would solve all of these problems.
