Safety Training Officer
West Carina Rig
Why did you join Seadrill?
I was looking for opportunities in the offshore industry, especially in deep-water drilling operations that could raise the bar in safety management systems. Seadrill was addressing these challenges, and so it was a good match for me.
How long have you been with Seadrill, and what keeps you here?
It’s been a pleasure to work with my Safety team and all the crew during the last 3 years, because we’ve already faced challenges together at the beginning of the rig’s operation. We’ve increased the safety culture a lot, which makes it easier to deal with day-to-day challenges, and to comply with client and company standards.
What makes someone a good fit for the team?
Definitely someone who is loyal and safety-focused, and can inspire people around them. They need to be able to take accountability, be proactive and be keen to go further.
What would you say to someone thinking about a career with Seadrill?
Seadrill is an ambitious company. Even during the biggest recession in the industry, they’ve worked hard to find ways to keep the business running effectively – and that’s what makes it special. If you’re working for Seadrill when the industry picks up again, you’ll be 10 steps ahead of everyone else.
