ADMA-OPCO ‘Green Hands’ Program | DuPont Safety and Sustainability Awards 2013

  1. 1. A regional pioneer in hydrocarbon production, the development of ADMA-OPCO’s operations parallels the striking economic and cultural transformation of Abu Dhabi itself. The company’s core assets include two major oil field concessions: Umm Shaif, which lies 150 kilometres northwest of Abu Dhabi city; and Zakum, 55 kilometres southeast of Umm Shaif and one of the largest offshore oilfields in the world. Each have yielded a constant flow of oil and gas to ADMA-OPCO’s processing infrastructure for around 50 years. Das Island which lies some 180 kilometers from the city of Abu Dhabi is the industrial base. As part of its long term sustainable production plan, the company has embarked on a fast paced development program for new fields i.e. Satah Al Razboot (SARB), NASR and Umm Lulu. In the period since the Green Hands program began, ADMA-OPCO has totally eliminated accidents involving new workers. Impressively, this has been achieved without any additional costs – in fact, the initiative has led to an actual cost saving by avoiding the negative impact of loss time injuries. Similarly, the program itself is easily transferable and continues to be improved on the basis of comprehensive risk assessment reviews. In line with the company’s aim to achieve the highest standards of health and safety – backed by strategic use of global performance data – ADMA-OPCO developed the Green Hands program after recognising that a number of accidents had involved new or redeployed staff commencing their work duties without comprehensive safety training. The program includes mandatory safety inductions, tailored orientation activities (including on-site), the wearing of a symbolic green hard hat until the orientation program is completed and a follow-up report carried out, and spot audits to ensure effective implementation.
