Inspecting in a World Full of Blind Corners

juni 2013

Paper in preparation of a study of the effectiveness of the (regulatory) inspection approach in the Offshore Drilling Industry.
The growing complexity of offshore drilling operations increases the uncertainty about failure options and decreases the predictability of failure. A common response to a large-scale incident is the tightening of regulations and governance while research conducted by Weick, Sutcliffe, Dekker and others, suggests that the current (regulatory) inspection approach in general does not necessarily support the prevention of incidents in complex organizations. This research project aims to study the effectiveness of the current (regulatory) inspection approach to this effect in the Offshore Drilling Industry in today's context.

Related to a research project studying the contribution of regulatory inspection to the prevention of incidents in the offshore drilling industry, as a basis for a discussion on the suitability of the current regulatory inspection approach. Research conducted within the context of High Reliability Organizing suggests that the current regulatory inspection approach does not necessarily support the prevention of incidents in complex organizations.
