Health & Safety

In any project, the safety of our personnel, the environment and the local community are paramount. That's why safety has been designed into Benthic’s technology and operating procedures from the start.

Innovative Technology, Proven Processes

Because our innovative Portable Remotely Operated Drill (PROD) operates on the seabed and is controlled remotely from a vessel, it is inherently safer than a traditional drillship. However, it isn’t simply our technology that has made us an industry leader in safety.

Benthic’s focus on safety emanates from the very top of our organization and is continually reinforced as one of the core tenets of Benthic’s culture. We take a proactive attitude to risk management, continually reviewing and monitoring our procedures for the protection of human health, personal safety and environmental quality.

Our safety systems and procedures have been refined during years of global deployments, often in difficult environments and extreme conditions. They are supported by extensive employee training and rigorous reporting, with daily hazard reporting during deployments. Our planned new technology and training center in Houston will promote our safety-conscious culture and give our people the skills they need to operate safely in demanding marine environments.

Safety Systems and Certifications

Our approach is underpinned by a comprehensive HSE Management System and Quality Management System. Our systems have been vetted by selected clients, including global leaders in the oil and gas industry.

We also comply with these international standards:

  • ISO 9001: Quality Management Systems — certified.
  • OHSAS 18001: Occupational Health and Safety — certified.
  • ISO 14001: Environmental Management — certification planned.
