Cresent - Making Work Safe

Cresent and MODEC do Brasil agree electronic Control of Work contract for FPSO fleet

UK-based Health & Safety specialists, Cresent, have been selected by MODEC do Brasil as their electronic Control of Work (e-CoW) provider, using Cresent’s WorkSafe® solution.

The contract involves all parts of Cresent’s business, including consultancy, project management, e-CoW software, e-learning, and classroom-based learning. The project will see WorkSafe® deployed initially on nine of MODEC’s vessels.

The WorkSafe® solution includes three core modules; Task Risk Assessment, Permit to Work and Energy Isolations, all of which MODEC will be implementing. The modules are interconnected to provide a comprehensive planning and risk management tool, ensuring that information can be easily accessed in an efficient way.

The decision by MODEC to move to an e-CoW system follows a significant upgrade to its system in 2018, which has provided a solid foundation for the e-CoW system to build upon.

The project kicked off in late April, with the project team meeting at MODEC’s offices in Rio de Janeiro over a three-day period, prior to MODEC’s visit to Cresent in early June.  

Cresent’s CEO, Jim Land, commented:

“Having had a presence in Brazil and been a MODEC approved supplier for over 15 years, it’s very rewarding to be chosen by MODEC for such a significant project.  MODEC is the world’s biggest FPSO Operator, so this is a lot of work and a great endorsement of our WorkSafe® e-CoW system, especially now when the oil and gas market is once again in growth with many new opportunities. We are really looking forward to further developing our relationship with MODEC, both in Brazil and globally”.

Alex Cardoso, of MODEC do Brasil, commented:

“MODEC is rightly proud of its successful safety record and very high up-time operating our fleet of FPSOs.  Sustaining high levels for safety and operations relies on good planning, robust management systems, and a great team of people working in a positive and safe culture.  Upgrading our existing system to the WorkSafe e-CoW provided by Cresent is a key aspect of our continuing safety performance improvement strategy, as well as our commitment to make better use of technology.  Cresent is a well-established company that has provided control of work systems and consultancy for many years and their expertise was a key factor in their selection for this project.  The Cresent team and their flexible approach make them a joy to work with”.
