Chapter 2

Using Communication to Avoid Hazards

Abstract

Like many other oil-field operations, fishing jobs bring together rig, operating-company, and service-company personnel who may not work closely together every day. When such a group is formed to solve the complex problems that fishing jobs can present, the importance of clear and precise communication cannot be overemphasized. Never assume that people understand the explanation or description of a problem. Because fishing jobs can be hazardous, it is critical to make sure that all descriptions of the problem and plans for its solution are thoroughly understood by all the parties involved.
