This beautiful engine was attached to a 1969 Camaro at the Mecum Auction in Houston 2017. If I only had $100,000!!!!
I’ll probably never buy a true Yenko, but I’m ok with a fake. The auction was fun, saw several original Mustang Shelby Cobra’s that went for $100k +. One of them went for $250k. Could you imagine paying that much for a car that you will rarely drive?
Ok guys, it’s time for me to get a new job. I need all the help I can get. HSE related, don’t care where it is as long as it’s close to good schools and the place is safe. If it’s rotational, I would like to stay close to a 28/28. I don’t want to be gone 9 months a year like my Africa job.
I’ve worked in the Middle East, U.S. and Africa. I have worked on many global projects.
I have my BS in Environmental Management (with a concentration in Occupational Safety) and I just got my MBA Organizational Leadership.
I have my OHST, CES and I’m a member of the Board of Certified of Safety Professionals. Also, I’m a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success.
I also have done numerous ISO, OSHA, PSM, SEMS audits. Technical writing, training and competency and built entire HSE Management Systems. I’ve done consulting with many of the larger oil and gas companies in the U.S.
Here are a few projects I’ve worked on: Transocean Global HSE Management System, Transocean North American (NAM) Corrective Actions post Deepwater Horizon Audit, Hess SEMS for Gulf of Mexico, ENI Asset Risk Registers & SEMS, Nalco-Champion Integrated HSE Management System (IMS), ExxonMobil Quality & HSE Plan, Noble LNG Technical College Training Program (Ruppin College)
I was going through one of my flash drives and found this webinar that I co-created and delivered back in 2014. Given the current climate for Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS) I thought some people could use this today.
I don’t think this was the final copy, BV has that and I can’t find it on their website anywhere. So, I thought I would use mine and see if it can help explain to some of those new safety guys out there a bit more about SEMS and SEMS II.
It’s really quite simple, but so many make it hard when it doesn’t need to be. Here is the key to understanding the basics of SEMS and SEMS II.
You must have a written SEMS plan
It must be known by your employees (they need to know where to find it)
You will be audited (both in the field and in the office)
You will be held accountable against what YOUR plan states
It’s that easy. If you say you have a way of doing things, then do it. I’ve come across so many companies that have a written plan that state they do something this particular way, then they do it another way. That’s when the auditors will ding you. As your program grows, the auditors will hold you to a higher standard.
Go to the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), 30 part 250 and you will find what you MUST have as a minimum in your plan. Then, you can build from there. I’ve built a few SEMS plans for various companies, it isn’t hard, but does require thought and top management commitment, which is sometimes hard to come by with smaller companies.
Anyway, enjoy the presentation. If I can find my copy with my notes, I’ll include it. If you need any help with SEMS, let me know. I am SEMS lead-auditor trained and have been involved with this for many years.
Great Day! My wife and I went to the Rich Eisen Show in downtown Houston the other day (#REsb51). He was extremely nice and after the show he came out and talked to everyone. His crew was great, the guests were great. I even got to ask him a legit question.
Growing up in the late 80’s and 90’s, if you ever watched ESPN, you got to “know” Rich, Dan Patrick, Stuart Scott, Chris Berman and many others. In college I watched ESPN nearly every waking hour. Once Dan and Rich left I followed them. I watch the Dan Patrick show and Rich Eisen show without fail. When I was working in Africa, I couldn’t watch (because our band-width was horrible), but I could listen.
So this past week, I got to see Dan Patrick, listen to Berman interact with our crowd and actually got to talk with Rich. It was a dream come true for me.
So, what was my question to Rich?
“Which interview made him the most nervous?” I was a bit shocked with his answer, but he went on to explain. It was one of his music hero’s. If you watch his show you might could guess it, Bruce Springsteen!
I asked him if he ever got nervous with sports stars and he said, nope!
I’ll post some more pics with his crew (the Chris command center), which was beyond great. Loved it!
Here we are at our stop in Honduras during Christmas. This was our favorite spot. We even took some Christmas gifts for our guide’s children. He took us all over the island and to his house (per our request). I could live on the island tomorrow!
We went to a little restaurant where we were the only people there. My wife asked how they prepared everything, and they let her go into the kitchen to help cook. The owners little boy was glad to have some kids to play with. We ended up staying there for several hours.
Ken posted this on his site, one judge ruled that BSEE can’t INC contractors. That’s a pretty big deal. Give Ken’s site a look. It’s pretty good info for you young safety guys out there. It’s not just for the offshore business, all HSE.
While sitting on the beach in Costa Maya Mexico I HAD to introduce my oldest to the virgin strawberry daiquiri. She loved it. This was from our Carnival cruise Christmas vacation. Our ship was the Carnival Breeze, not a bad ship. The best Carnival ship I have been on. This is just one of our stops…the last one (insert sad face). But 8 days is a long time on a cruise. 8 days, with 4 days in a row of stops is tough!
