The Analysis And Management Of Hse Proactive Reporting System Within In Amenas Operations

Authors : Bouacha Farid .


The reactive reporting system is widely used to introduce HSE performances and to notify the robustness of management aspects in place. However, lagging indicators are not sufficient to measure employees’ perception and to demonstrate organisational efforts or leadership commitment to HSE requirement. Being proactive throughout leading indicators is the most appropriate way to perform reporting process and to assess HSE performance measurement. Hence, proactive reporting system contributes effectively to explain the attitudes and to establish essential attempts to improve the whole HSE features. This paper examines both the existing Tr@cker findings and the HSE performance measurement linked to In Amenas Operations with a further benchmarking assessment of leading and lagging indicators. In addition, a survey has been carried out to gauge both HSE culture on site and familiarity of employees with the elements of proactive reporting system in place. And while the human factors take an immense part when conducting the reporting process, a human reliability analysis was pursued to evaluate such contribution. The findings show that the management targets are not achieved as a whole; for this reason more effort must be focussed within the reporting practices, regarding procedures, defining responsibilities and allocating crucial resources with no blame culture and contractors’ involvement. The current study serves as a baseline reference to evaluate forthcoming progress effort and to weigh against prospect improvement areas.
