Consolidation within Maersk Oil meant that the Company's emergency management and OSPR frameworks were no longer appropriate. Furthermore, staff changes had weakened competence and experience levels
Some of the Maersk Oil senior leadership had previously worked in the USA and in other major oil companies where pure Incident Command System (ICS) was used. The Maersk Oil Senior Leaders were clear they did not want pure ICS. They wished to instil a system that had scalability to cover the most credible situations faced by the business units, whilst avoiding the training burden of ICS. It was also important to conform to the latest Incident Management System good practice guide.
OSRL solved these issues by building Maersk Oil an Incident Management System that provides the organisation with a simple and efficient framework for managing any incident.
