Conserve Safety Press Release

Traffic management plan drives safety results for local firm

An Aberdeen offshore container and tank rental business has praised its employees for their contribution to its HSEQ achievements and performance.   A three yearly external audit conducted by BSI commended Conserve Oilfield Services for a traffic management plan implemented at the six-acre site which can see upwards of forty lorries through the facility in any one day. 

Conserve, rental providers of offshore containers, tanks and cargo carrying units to the offshore oil and gas industry, successfully achieved recertification in internationally recognised OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety, ISO 14001 Environmental and ISO 9001 Quality management standards this month, with zero non-conformances.  This follows on the successful outcomes of zero non-conformances raised during surveillance audits throughout 2013.    

 “We can manage two to four hundred lifts and manoeuvres of equipment a day and with a small experienced team of around fifteen the risk potential is heightened, said Kelly Stevenson, HSEQ manager.  “In order to minimise risk and to ensure the highest levels of safety we’ve worked with our team, the local transport companies and drivers to implement a complete on-site traffic management plan setting out four loading and unloading areas, marking prominent walkways, and proactively issuing driver rules.  The results have been extremely positive, achieving a safer work environment for our employees, drivers and visitors.” 

Conserve operate an accredited Integrated Management System, implementing a number of initiatives over the last few years including improving overall engagement with the team around quality, health and safety; and launching innovative safety chemical tanks into the market.  This year Conserve increased its FPAL ratings by 10%.  Conserve significantly raised its scores in four elements achieving 7.1 for environmental management (increased from 6.0), 7.2 for documentation (increased from 5.2), and 7.6 in service quality (increased from 6.8). 

FPAL is the oil and gas industry’s supply chain database in the UK and Netherlands, and aims to raise industry standards.  The scheme identifies, qualifies, evaluates and monitors suppliers on behalf of its purchasing members.

With a current rental portfolio of over 5000 units, Conserve is forecasting continued growth with the firm set to continue investment in its product portfolio to support global offshore oil and gas projects.

“We’ve recently purchased additional land next to our Aberdeen facility in order to extend our yard and storage area for additional container fleet,” said Chris MacPhee, UK Managing Director.  “Achieving high HSEQ standards is paramount to our successful growth and I’m delighted with our recent successful recertification audit, the results of which pay testament to the efforts of our entire team in implementing and practising the highest levels of safety each and every day. We continue to explore new technologies and innovations that will deliver safer operations, equipment and solutions for our growing client base.”

Conserve Oilfield Services Limited is an established market leader in the rental of offshore containers, tanks, cargo carrying units, associated equipment and services for participants in the offshore oil and gas industry.
