Life-Saving Rules

Valaris has adopted the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) nine Life-Saving Rules to: 

  • Support standardization across the oil and gas industry.
  • Enable better transfer of knowledge, experience and lessons learned.
  • Increase individual awareness and ownership of critical safeguards that prevent fatalities and serious injuries.
  • Improve clarity and allow for consistent use by contractors and operators performing work while onboard Valaris rigs and facilities. 

The Life-Saving Rules support our Management System and are highlighted throughout our standards and procedures.

Safe Systems of Work (SSoW)

At Valaris, we are committed to providing consistent and efficient management of worksite safety, including both personal and process safety. By establishing requirements for prevention and mitigation barriers and defining their relationships, operational hazards can be identified, and risk managed before any work activities are started.

The five key components of Valaris’ SSoW framework specify the minimum requirements that focus on preventing harm to people, environment or plant.

Behavior-Based Safety Training

Our Behavioral-Based Safety Program supports our effort in preventing incidents and building an interdependent safety culture by:

  • Observing people at work and having an open conversation about safety
  • Correcting unsafe behavior or conditions then reinforcing positive behavior
  • Creating a respectful environment that encourages safety conversations
