Transocean Rather achieved one year without a recordable incident on June 25, 2009.

 

“It is no coincidence that the Rather team is now one of the top three performers in the EAU Business Unit,” said Dave Walls, North Sea and Mediterranean Division’s Senior Operations Manager. “A year ago, this wasn’t the case. A team agreement that this wasn't where they wanted to be and a determined effort to make a difference resulted in a change in what is acceptable on the rig. Tolerance was lowered, broken windows were fixed, and it is these changes that have produced the measurable results.”
