My biggest fear is another major event such as our Twin Hurricanes anywhere in a major oil field on this earth. We do not have the experienced Dive personal, up to date DSV's or the tools ready to handle that. The history of these type events that we have been through many times is: Our customers just want their problem cured, whatever work rules they have, are out the window. So what do we do?
It is on us, the Dive Supervisor, not the Designated person-in-charge (DPIC), the Project manager anyone else, not even the diver. Our number one job is to get them down and back safely out of the chamber. So whether anyone else on the job or in the office likes it we, the guys sitting in that chair, have to be willing to shut it down.
You can almost hear the old movie theme from Jaws, playing in the back ground. I do hope this Famine doesn't end like so many in the past have, instant FEAST!
PS: An important message to Management. You do not build an Effective, Safe, Team by surrounding yourself with people afraid to tell you the truth or are just plain liars, cover their own butts types!
