We made the public announcement of the SEMSReady™ approach to meeting oil and gas company requirements for worker evaluations under SEMS this morning. You can read the announcement here.
Anyone familiar with SEMS knows that one of the biggest concerns has been the requirement that operators verify that their contractor personnel have the skills and knowledge to work safely and effectively. That has driven many operators to require annual evaluations of contractor personnel and, until now, there have been very few programs that help contractors perform those evaluations in a way that can be audited.
SEMSReady™ addresses that concern through classes that teach contractors to create and execute evaluation programs, hands on assistance in setting up the programs and a database to document that evaluators are trained and that evaluations were done objectively. Find more at www.SEMSReady.com.
