Loving the Limbe Wildlife Center in Cameroon
George Davidson, Crane Operator on the Sedco 714, on February 5 was selected by client Total to receive the “Mobile Drilling Rigs Award” during their annual Safety Health & Environment awards ceremony at the Marcliffe Hotel in Aberdeen. The awards ceremony recognized outstanding individual or team achievements in Health Safety and Environment. George was nominated by Total staff, and won the award from a pool of 15 nominees and three finalists for “leading by example and inspiring others with his energy and initiative, and making an exceptional contribution toward the overall SH&E performance for 2008,” said Total.
“George takes his responsibilities as a mentor up to another level,” said Ian Chisnall, Sedco 714 Performance Rig Manager. “With the number of new personnel we see going through the rig without rig experience, we have to be tuned into the mentoring aspect. George has been recognized by our client as being a great mentor for new personnel, a great team player, inviting and involving Service Provider participation in all our systems, and setting high expectations in the safety regime.”
Congratulations to George, and keep up the great work!!

When isn’t busy being a regular 22-year-old student at the Stavanger Offshore Technical School and an advocate for young employees in her work as the head of the Industri Energi union’s youth committee, she heads offshore to work as a Roustabout on the Transocean Arctic.
“I think the job is fantastically exciting. Couldn’t be better,” she said. “I like the job because it’s never possible to predict what the day will bring.”
She takes this enthusiasm for life and work offshore back to the IE union’s youth committee in order to provide personal and professional support to the company’s young employees in the area. Marita says there are nearly 100 in her committee’s target group alone.
Thanks to Marita for her efforts at Transocean and her support of her co-workers!
