Kakivik receives HSE Excellence Award from ConocoPhillips

Cited for Commitment to Safety, Training, Mentoring

Anchorage, AK - Kakivik Asset Management, LLC received one of ConocoPhillips Alaska Inc.'s 2010 HSE Excellence Awards at their Fall HSE Leadership Conference on November 19. Kakivik's safety performance was noteworthy in that the company is engaged in high risk/high exposure activities for the Kuparuk and Alpine pipeline and facility infrastructure inspection programs.

The company's effort to effectively manage these risks has allowed Kakivik's employees to work:

  • One year without an OSHA Recordable Injury (requiring medical treatment)
  • Seven years without a Lost Time Injury at ConocoPhillips
  • With only one spill in our 11-year history on ConocoPhillips' sites

ConocoPhillips noted that a number of significant Kakivik HSE management systems and processes contributed to this performance, including:

  • The management team's commitment to safety as integral to Kakivik's business operations
  • New hire HSE orientation
  • On-going training and mentoring

Kakivik's management and employees are committed to safety excellence. The company's More & Better 3F's Safety Leadership Program builds upon Kakivik's strong continuous improvement performance and quality culture with a similar focus on HSE. Through More & Better Face Time (safety conversations at and between all levels), Feedback (reporting and documenting what is working and what is not) and Follow-Up (effectively addressing gaps and areas requiring improvement), Kakivik's entire team is actively engaged in reaching Target Zero.

Specifically relating to More & Better Follow-Up, Kakivik has implemented a corrective action scoring system to improve in its efforts to eliminate or significantly reduce the potential for injuries. ConocoPhillips requested that Kakivik share the processes with its leaders and key contract companies in a number of meetings in Anchorage and at field locations.
