No one in this industry works in a bubble. Your people might be following all the safety protocols and practices, but just one person taking a shortcut puts everyone else in danger.

Likewise, what if a sub-contractor or outside service technician comes in and his concept of safe behaviour is different from yours? He might think he’s being careful, but in reality everyone’s at risk.

According to our president and CEO, Cameron McGillivray, “the success of the industry in continuously improving its safety performance is made possible by all parts of the industry working together.” And that’s where Enform comes in. We were formed by the six sectors of the upstream oil and gas industry to achieve one important common goal:

To get everyone home safely at the end of the day.

It’s this commitment that enables us to work together as a unified group and it’s what sets us apart.

“We all want to improve health and safety. And, we all want to be in agreement on how it works,” said Mark Scholz, president of the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors.

“This kind of collaboration doesn’t happen anywhere else in the world,” he continued. “It gives Canada’s oil and gas industry a tremendous advantage when it comes to safety.”

So how does the industry work together through Enform? This graphic breaks it down:


Enform was formed by industry, for industry
