Testimonials

"We have managed to deliver improved safety performance through a period of significant change in our company in Aberdeen. Optimus have challenged our thinking and helped us to lead through our values around care and safety. We have transformed our safety performance from the lower quartile to a level of excellence over the last 20 months and we have seen corresponding performance improvements in non-safety areas such as plant uptime."

"Sustainability has been brought about through the Optimus invention approach of transferring capability into our organisation and equipting our team with new skills and methods for getting the best out of people - they are real enablers of change and performance improvement."

Senior Projects Advisor, Major Operator

"Our guiding principle of ZERO harm was put into context in an original fashion by Optimus. I am confident that all attendants left the room believing in it. In the next few days, the feedback I received was overwhelming. I was left in no doubt that we achieved something that people felt was worthwhile."

"Several of the employees mentioned that what they had learned could and would be extended beyond their workplace into their home and family life. That's a huge testament to what was achieved."

Turnaround Leader speaking about Induction Plus™

"Over the last year and a half we have seen positive cultural changes and have a clear vision of where we sit culturally after the OCI survey was undertaken. The passion in the leadership team onsite and collaborative working with the Optimus coaches has created a strong team ethos that constantly strives to improve its safety performance: "A collaborative adventure that has left a foundation to be built from that will take us into the next dimension of cultural values."

Yard Manager

"Nearing the end of a lengthy contract but faced with a month of non-routine and high risk activity, we knew that we needed to take additional steps to ensure that our "safety tools" were being used correctly and effectively, but we weren't sure what the additional step looked like. Our Client Manager at Optimus, Paula Paterson assessed and was able to visualize our situation and she then guided us in the right direction towards a plan which was executed within a matter of 3 days using an Optimus provided resource. Our proposal was sumbitted to, and welcomed by our customer, and thus far the results are most encouraging"
