During the BP MC 252 Response, Budwine & Associates has provided third party safety oversight in support of operations as a subcontractor to the Center for Toxicology and Environmental Health (CTEH). This oversight was accomplished by the deployment of safety observers, who were also Dive Medicine Technicians (DMT). These individuals have been specifically trained on safe operations in an offshore marine environment as well as being qualified paramedics prepared to respond, assess, treat, and transport personnel suffering from an occupational illness or injury. Post incident the DMT would then properly document and report the incident and deliver the same to his supervisor.

Supervising the field operations and acting as a liaison between the safety and operations departments has been the responsibility of a qualified Marine Safety Manager (MSM). This individual has capitalized on his years of experience and expertise in the marine industry to assess the ongoing marine operations, develop the appropriate safety oversight, manage the logistics necessary to accomplish the requisite safety response, and communicate all of the above to the field observers, operations controllers, and safety officers.

The combination of these skilled individuals, strategically placed in the field and command positions, has culminated in the successful, safe, and comprehensive support of this response project.
