Subcontracting HSE Tasks

Updated: Dec 15, 2023

Mastering Deadline Management through Strategic Subcontracting

In the fast-paced world of the Oil and Gas industry, meeting project deadlines while maintaining high Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) standards can be challenging. A practical approach to managing large HSE projects is to divide and subcontract tasks.

Case Study: Subcontracting an HSEMS Project

Scenario: Imagine you're tasked with writing an HSE Management System (HSEMS) for $2,000 over 45 days.

Strategy: Break down the project and outsource each section to different peers, allocating $100 per chapter over 25 days. This method not only helps meet the deadline with a 20-day buffer but also allows you to earn a significant portion for overseeing and integrating the work.

Ensuring Quality and Consistency

Integration and Editing: When subcontracting, ensuring that the final HSEMS is cohesive and maintains a consistent style and tone is crucial. This might involve rewriting and harmonizing the documents received from different subcontractors.

Building a Reliable Subcontractor Network

  • Hiring Competent Subcontractors: Focus on their resumes, work samples, ratings, and client testimonials. Be cautious of fabricated resumes and samples, especially online.

  • Maintaining a Positive Relationship: Treat subcontractors with professionalism and respect. Pay them on time and show understanding for occasional lapses. A happy subcontractor is more likely to deliver quality work.

Focusing on Quality and Client Relationships

  • Quality Over Everything: In our industry, the quality of work is paramount. Consistently delivering high-standard HSE tasks ensures long-term business success and client satisfaction.

  • Client Referrals: Encourage existing clients to refer your services. Asking for referrals is not unprofessional; it's a sign of confidence in your ability to deliver quality work. This can lead to new business opportunities and strengthen client relationships.

Strategic Subcontracting for HSE Success

In conclusion, effective management of HSE tasks in the Oil and Gas industry often involves innovative subcontracting strategies. By breaking down large projects, ensuring consistency, building a solid subcontractor network, and focusing on quality, HSE consultants can meet deadlines and maintain high work standards.

Navigating project deadlines in the complex Oil and Gas sector requires innovative approaches like strategic subcontracting. By adopting these methods, we can ensure that our HSE projects are completed on time and uphold the industry’s rigorous safety and environmental standards.
