In these days of well-planned operations, the words “Stop the Job” should rarely be heard. When I first started in the industry, each individual party in the project would do their part of the loadout without having to fully consider the other disciplines working on the job. Of course, with the introduction of Toolbox Talks, Risk Assessments and Method Statements etc., this has now turned full circle.

As per my previous article (Should you Stick to your (first) principles? – Linkedin Nov 2016), I am a great advocate of treating FE as a tool. What do I mean by that?
