The pressure got intensified by a global event

Unplanned downtime

Productivity loss from collaboration restrictions

Asset reliability

Reduced staffing and turnaround delays put pressure on the workforce. This further exposes the site to the risk of safety and security incidents.


Reduced site staffing, may add to worker fatigue due to increased stress levels with new and additional worker routine responsibilities.

Ways of working changes

Leaders and workers will need to adjust work practices and schedules to follow hygiene, remote working and/or physical distancing requirements.

Travel restrictions

Critical skilled resources may not be available due to imposed travel restrictions in different countries.
