Alliance Offshore Safety Programs

The Alliance Offshore Safety Mission and Vision

Safety Mission: Mission Zero - Zero harm to people. Zero harm to the environment. Every person. Every job. Every day.

Create a safe and caring culture where all involved in our operations return home better educated as safety-minded individuals.

Safety Vision: 

Create a truly great company – a company where safe quality workmanship is the norm; where we can strive to be the best we can be, and where great things are accomplished.

Achieving safety excellence requires going beyond the traditional safety focus of engineering and regulations. Because human behavior is a contributing cause to most incidents and injuries, safety excellence can only be achieved by addressing the human dimensions of safety. Therefore reducing at-risk behavior and increasing safe behavior requires understanding how these behaviors are motivated.

Safety Program Components

Behavioral Observation Safety System (BOSS)

The Alliance Offshore behavior process approach should empower employees to be more actively involved in specifying, defining, and assessing correct safety practices. Safe behaviors are defined and objectively described through observation so that it is clear to all parties (management and workers) exactly what the employees should do and how they should do it. These expectations will be documented. Employees will be randomly observed and both safe and at-risk behaviors will be defined and measured to positively identify areas in need of improvement. This employee-based process should increase behavioral awareness and motivate worker adherence to our safety performance standards.

Job Safety & Environmental Analysis (JSEA)

A Job Safety Environmental Analysis (JSEA), as the name implies, is designed for analyzing a job, specifically in the area of actions or behaviors related to health, safety, and environment hazards and risks toward the ultimate objective of eliminating the likelihood of workplace incidents. JSEA emphasizes the key tasks of the job, energy source identification associated with each job task, hazard identification and risk assessment, and actions. JSEA is also critical to improving communication above and beyond procedures already in place.


To ensure that Alliance Offshore's short service employees are identified, appropriately supervised, trained, and managed in order to prevent accidents such as personal injury, injury to others, environmental damage, or property damage.
