QHSE Group Kicks Off Operations Safety Development Program

PeopleFocus03The QHSE group has spent the past year developing a program, the Operations Safety Development Program, which takes high potential leaders from throughout Transocean and puts them into a 14-month, structured safety development program within the corporate QHSE team.

The OSDP builds on the success of two former development programs, OSA and RMSDP, but with a focus on the future demands of our business. The program includes:

A candidate’s participation in OSDP is no guarantee of promotion, as that depends on the performance of each individual, but the general goal is to turn out candidates with skills to eventually progress at least two to three levels above the position they held before entering OSDP.


A candidate’s nomination starts with a submission or request to a line manager, who reviews the candidate based on a set of criteria before routing the nomination up through other levels of approval. Final selection is made jointly by the corporate QHSE group and each Business Unit’s Senior Vice President on a rolling basis. Approximately four slots are still available in 2009, and all slots for 2010 remain open.

“Now that I have completed my first trip, I am honored and excited by the magnitude of opportunity I have to develop my personal skills in this program, and overwhelmed by the support I have received from all departments and various Business Units,” said Stuart Sutherland, OSDP’s first participant. “The time and commitment that’s been devoted to supporting this program further highlights Transocean’s commitment to develop its people.”

“I believe in the coming years our continued success as an organization will depend on developing those people we know to have the potential to be leaders in both safety and performance,” said Adrian Rose, VP of QHSE. “The success of this people development program is dependent upon the quality of the participants, the curriculum and the support received from each of our Business Units worldwide. I look forward to receiving nominations for individuals who you believe are the future of Transocean.”
