Professional Achievement as Manager of HSE:

1.Set up Safety Monitor Committee comprising of department supervisors and managers to ensure and facilitate prompt and accurate reports and recording of accidents, injuries and violations of company safe rules and regulations. Updated and changed dysfunctional and obsolete HSE practices, introduced proactive safety innovations and intervention prevention strategies that drastically reduced recordable accidents and injuries.

2.Introduced and enforced mandatory safety training for new employees and contractors before they become engaged in activities inside and outside the manufacturing facility, although I had a problem convincing management to accept these safety approaches.

3.Created smoking outfits to stop employees smoking by the doors where the cigarette fumes entered the facility through constant opening and closing of the doors, causing some employees to complain of eye irritation from smokes and other homeostatic imbalances of second hand smoking.

4.Changed facility structures standing in the way of safety such as recommending the removal of all “Exit” doors that opened in the opposite directions of “Exits” and replaced to open in the “Exit” directions.

5.Recommended the construction of structures that protected the propane tanks from becoming exposed to the sun.

6.Recognized in 2007/2008 National Oilwell Varco leadership conference as the only manager that attained zero “Total Recordable Incident Rate” (TRIR) which depicted the effectiveness and efficiency of my HSE safety programs and procedures.

Position: Quality Control Specialist:

1.Designed and improved Machinists’ operational safety procedures that annulled common operational flaws and mistakes in their daily duties, which ensured quality control of manufactured Downhole Tools (DHT) products.

2.Managed quality performance metrics (QPM) reporting, a key tool in evaluating vendor performance as well as departmental efficiency and productivity.

3.Approved Vendors’ supplies of materials to the company with accuracy for 6 months which saved the company hundreds of millions of dollars prior to my promotion to the position of manager of health, safety, and environment.

4.Receiving department had serious inventory problems such that it took warehouse parts-supplier-employees 35-45 minutes to locate parts needed for Downhole Tools manufacturing. I heard about this problem, studied it and I approached the director of operations and told him that I could solve the problem in two weeks, including the supervision and implementation of recommended inventory changes. In three weeks, the chaotic inventory records were corrected and the new palletized and computerized inventory arrangement made it possible to check for parts in the computer, locate where there are and find them in less than 5 minutes, which saved the facility millions of dollars a month in wasted employees hours searching for parts.
