  • We needed a mustering/headcount system that could ensure everyone would be accounted for during the potential release of hazardous/toxic gasses. Hanna Bulovski, Messer
Emergency Mustering

Manage evacuations and ensure the life safety of every person in your facilities

Most organizations in the oil and gas industry still rely on outdated processes to account for everyone that is onsite when incidents occur. Drills take longer than they should, and people that are onsite can be missing from the roster of who to look for altogether.

How can we help?

Savance Workplace keeps a complete roster of every employee and visitor in your facilities along with their last location and contact information. People can mark themselves safe at mobile muster stations by scanning their credentials or tapping their name. The last location and contact information of every person you need to find is right at your fingertips, and emergency notifications can be sent if someone is missing.

Visitor Management for the Oil and Gas Industry Illustration
  • The existing guest sign-in process was a sign-in book at the reception counter. We needed to get with the times and improve security and safety to match society today. Brian Bell, Ariel Corporation
Visitor Management

Ensure compliance for visitors and contractors and automate their processes

Far too many organizations still rely on antiquated visitor management systems that are error prone and eat away at valuable time. Requirements like watching safety videos and signing paperwork can create bottlenecks and friction in the check-in process when people arrive, and visitors will oftentimes end up with access they shouldn’t have or go unaccounted for during incidents or drills.

How can we help?

The visitor process can be streamlined, and in many cases, completely automated with unattended entry. Contractors can fulfill their requirements before they arrive onsite, at kiosks, at attended stations, or with their own mobile device, and credentials can be issued based on successful check-ins, granting people the proper access in your facilities and allowing you to account for anyone’s location.

Workforce Management Solutions/Status Board for the Oil and Gas Industry
  • Being flexible – customizable – was key. We did not want to fit the customer to the product, but the product to the customer, and Savance was able to achieve that. Lafe Brownfield, Integrator for Ariel Corp.
Electronic In Out Board

Get complete accountability of every person in your facilities and organization

Historically, many organizations have relied on whiteboards and magnetic in/out boards to track everyone’s status. The boards can only be seen or updated in person, and changes aren’t synced or accessible anywhere else. The bottlenecks to maintaining status information across an organization leads to inaccurate information, and they also lack a good audit trail.

How can we help?

As employees and visitors use their credentials at readers throughout your facilities, their status can be automatically synced to Savance Workplace, and optionally viewed on custom-branded large screen Status Boards in a reception area or anywhere else in your facility. Status changes can also be made from kiosks or any other device. Real-time in out boards can be viewed or updated from anywhere, and can be customized to show you exactly who and what you need to see. Custom reporting also gives you a complete audit trail of your workplace.

Offshore Emergency Mustering

Ensure life safety during offshore emergencies

If you work off-shore, on a ship, oil rig, or other vessel, having a comprehensive response plan to emergencies is critical. As a company owner, you are responsible for minimizing the risk of human life and end preventable loss of life at sea. Safety procedure coordination and consistency is crucial.

How can we help?

Savance’s offshore emergency mustering solution geared specifically toward oil rig, shipboard, and other offshore emergency situations. It allows personnel and visitors to respond to an offshore emergency in the simplest and most effective manner. The Savance system provides the structure to prevent critical steps from being overlooked in case of an evacuation due to e.g. oil spills, fires, explosions, or natural disasters.

Ensure the Compliance & Life Safety of Your Workforce

The oil and gas industry is under significant pressure to automate operations and increase profitability while protecting their workforce. Fires, explosions, and evacuations are all too common in some of the world’s most critical facilities, and being prepared with future-proof systems in place is one of the most important decisions a business can make. Mitigating risk, enforcing compliance, and ensuring life safety have never been more important; and the cost of being reactive rises dramatically every year.

At Savance, we recognize these challenges, and have applied our decades of experience and expertise to help automate essential processes for the oil and gas industry. Our mission is to give refineries, rigs, processing plants, and other critical facilities the accountability they need to ensure the compliance and life safety of their workforce.

Ariel Corporation Case Study Illustration

Ariel Corporation

  • Our visitor security has increased, and we have better visibility on everyone who is in our facilities at any time.
Ariel’s entire visitor process has been automated and streamlined. When visitors sign in through a self-service visitor kiosk, they watch a required safety video, sign an NDA, and get their picture taken. A text message gets sent to the host, and a visitor name tag is printed. Longer-term visitors and contractors receive custom, full color access cards. With the addition of Savance Emergency Mustering, Ariel has an up-to-the-minute tool for roll call in case of an emergency.
Transocean Case Study Illustration


  • My relief and I have both had emergency musters since the installation of the system, and on both occasions we had musters in under 10 minutes. One of those emergencies took place at 0200 in the morning and involved significant emergency response and the confusion that comes along with it. Still, muster was completed in about 8 minutes. If you would have told me this before the installation of the Savance E-Muster system, I would have thought you were lying.
Transocean is one of the world’s largest providers of offshore contract drilling services for the oil and gas industry, working with clients such as BP, Shell, Exxon, and Chevron. Since implementing its Savance Workplace system, Transocean has seen drastic improvements to its emergency management procedures, including a minimum of 20-25% faster musters.
