The following letter is from a client with whom we worked for nine years.

September, 2010

To Scott, Mike & All Readers:
After 8 years, as I complete my role as the Subsea Manager for BP’s Thunder Horse Project, I would like to express recognition, and appreciation, to Scott Arnold, Mike Arnold and the safety staff from Proforma Safety for the outstanding contributions they have made to the safety culture of the Thunder Horse Project. With their help and oversight, the Thunder Horse Subsea Team was able to achieve over 15MM man-hours without a lost-time accident, most of these hours being worked in construction yards and on offshore installation vessels. This is a remarkable achievement for any project team and is a true testament to the quality of effort that these individuals contributed to the Thunder Horse work.

Safety performance does not simply happen by chance. By actively participating in the work planning stages, HAZIDs, kickoff meetings, and JSA’s, the team from Pro Forma provided continuous safety-related input into all facets of the work. During execution, the team members were in the yards and on the vessel decks, observing work practices and actively interacting with individuals to reinforce the safety message.

Scott and Mike frequently demonstrated their own personal commitment to the safety work, and their leadership was reflected in the dedication and actions of their staff.

I sincerely wish to thank, Scott, Mike and the safety team from Proforma Safety for their work. With their help, I was able to leverage my own personal commitment to safety as Thunder Horse Subsea Manager. Together we were able to accomplish many outstanding project achievements, while sending our many Thunder Horse team members home to their families without injury.

Following is a message from the ConocoPhillips lead on a seismic acquisition project in South Texas:

I want to thank all or you for a safe seismic acquisition effort in 2010. Collectively we logged 204,625 man-hours and 873,224 miles driven without a single recordable Health, Safety or Environmental incident. This feat is not accomplished with out the management support of all involved and for that I want to thank you each personally.”
