Two safety consultants of Proforma Safety International have been recognized by ConocoPhillips for their outstanding contribution to safety with ConocoPhillips Upstream Safety Ambassador awards.
Proforma Safety’s Raymond Gonzalez and Jeff McClenny were recognized for their safety leadership and for taking personal ownership to drive improved safety performance. Both safety consultants worked on the Peregrine Falcon 3D program, the largest land program in ConocoPhillips history, including the heritage companies. The project experienced zero recordable and zero lost time injuries. Nearly 500,000 man-hours were worked without incident. Both award recipients received letters of commendation and plaques from the senior vice president of ConocoPhillips Exploration and Business Development.
Prior to the Peregrine Falcon project, Gonzalez and McClenny worked on ConocoPhillip’s Tier IV and Barnett 3D programs, which also were completed successfully, achieving the safety goal of zero. They provided safety oversight for night operations on the Wyoming NEES3D program and completed the project without a recordable incident. Gonzalez also completed a second phase of the NEES3D program, assisting with the trashing completion at the end of the job with no recordable incidents.
In October 2011, McClenny was invited to participate as panel speaker in the ConocoPhillips Upstream HSE Summit with approximately 3,000 participants conferring on best practices for building a safety culture, risk tolerance, safe behaviors, hazard recognition and planning, process and contractor safety.
Jimmy Taylor, another Proforma Safety consultant, had also worked on the Peregrine Falcon project, but had moved on to another project before the review process for the award began.
“This is the type of performance that Proforma Safety consultants deliver on every job, every day, for every client,” said Proforma Safety President Scott Arnold. “Our team shows its passion for keeping both client and contractor personnel safe, and our outstanding safety track records across multiple projects are proof of this.
“We are very proud to have a team that’s so committed to making Proforma Safety a best in class HSE consulting company and grateful for all they do to grow our reputation,” he concluded. “We truly have the most experienced and dedicated team in our industry. “
