Chevron's security department needed to launch training on alarm systems for its oil rig employees. While alarm systems are tested periodically on the oil platform, a costly tendency to neglect such training takes place, becuase alarms are loud and deprive shift employees of night sleep.
Security is the main concern of the oil rig operations at Chevron due to the significant environmental, social and financial cost of error.
Before getting a job on the rig, Chevron employees complete massive security training. Part of the training covers an alarm system, where each alert type is prompted by a different sound code. Gas leaks, evacuation, fire emergencies, potential blowouts, and a call to resume work have unique sound codes.
Since the alarm does not go off frequently, the employees often confuse sound codes of particular events. Since the failure to react to the single code costs companies 700$ per minute, Chevron wanted to ascertain that rig employees know how to act in an emergency case.
Corpedios developed a training, using alarm codes and prompting the oil rig crew to respond to a set of questions after hearing alarm codes. The questions check employees' ability to take action upon hearing a particular voice code. Only upon achieving an accuracy rate of 100% would employees be set to embark on the rig for their shift.
The shift supervisor at Chevron can change voice codes and prompts to actions daily, as he sees fit, to keep employees alert and not to make the task repetitive.
