My time with Spartan was a great tool in terms of adapting to the Oil and Gas Industry. I had immediately picked up on that the mindset was operations before safety. The HSE Manager and myself implemented, what we liked to refer to as a "Culture Shock". In 2013 we had 4 recordables and numerous vehicle/personnel incidents. In 2014 we had almost doubled in company size and closed out the year with 0 recordables and very few vehicle/personnel incidents. 2015 despite the negative market and all the restructuring chaos. It did not effect our overall standings in terms of performance. We closed out the year with 0 recordables and with minimal incidents.
