M-I SWACO is continuously making improvements to better serve the customer and to provide a safe working environment for their employees. This issue reviews the entire year, but more importantly covers many topics related to QHSE: My CI and Demand Planning, as well as an interview with Alan McLean, Jerry Duncan, and Mark Stoller. Multiple locations submitted updates on their journey to reach STEM Tier 1 status; some have reached their goal, while other locations are still striving. Many M-I SWACO employees are receiving recognition awards for safety, and one employee saved a man’s life with the help of other people on the rig.
