About This Course

Oil & Gas facilities are high volume, high risk environments. To run these units safely and profitably, it requires an organisation with shift teams working at the very highest standard. This means excellent operators, shift supervisors and managers, who are capable at getting the very best from all of the resources available to them.

Managing shift operations is a highly challenging task. Shift working creates a unique set of issues and challenges. It is vital to ensure that the facility is run safely and efficiently. It is also important to ensure that the needs of the shift teams are met in terms of personal wellbeing, personal development and team development. For a manager, shift supervisor or senior operator to be effective, he must be highly motivated and skilled in a broad range of technical and personal competencies.

Multiple-shift operations can pose many challenges because of the potential for "disconnects" that can result in reduced throughput, higher levels of waste and increased levels of risk. Operating multiple shifts can be like running several different companies at the same time. Each change of shift brings a new team of people with different skills, attitudes and objectives. What is needed is a way of working that fosters common goals and a seamless flow of information, processes and products throughout your operation.

‘Best Practices in Multi-Shift Operations' brings together world class practices from the leading companies, together with numerous, high profile case studies to equip shift supervisors and senior operators for this very challenging yet exciting role.
