Global Excellence Management System (GEMS)
Diamond Offshore is committed to perform at the highest possible level of operational integrity, while emphasizing exemplary performance in health, safety, environmental protection, and regulatory compliance. To meet these goals, Diamond Offshore has created the Global Excellence Management System (GEMS), a set of procedures to monitor, control and continuously improve performance in these areas.
ZIO is the driving force behind all facets of our operations, and all the wisdom we gain along the way is captured in GEMS.
GEMS is a fully integrated Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality (HSEQ) system containing the practical procedures to monitor, control and continually improve performance and to ensure that we exceed customer expectations. GEMS is certified by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and by the International Management Code for the Safe Operations of Ships and Pollution Prevention (ISM Code). GEMS sets the highest standards for operations around the world.
GEMS incorporates the elements of a safety management system (SEMS) with recognized principles for quality management and includes the following:
|MANAGEMENT OF CHANGE|
|HEALTH, SAFETY & ENVIRONMENT (HSE)|
The key to continuous improvement is measurement. Only through measurement can we evaluate our performance and assess our efforts to improve. Diamond Offshore measures performance in all the key areas of safety, environmental responsibility, customer satisfaction, regulatory compliance, downtime management, and cost control. Diamond Offshore also encourages the sharing of best practices, both among ourselves and with other organizations. By sharing best practices, we can learn to shift from our set patterns and constantly improve.
