Transocean CEO Does Bollywood At a Safety Meeting

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I came across this clip on YouTube.  According the video author, Transocean (RIG) President and CEO Steven Newman performed a dance–Bollywood style–at the company’s 2009 safety review in Mumbai on Feb. 19-20 as some kind of reward/bet to Transocean’s India Division team for wining ”the best safety performance” in the company two years in a row. 

You can tell Newman probably spent considerable time rehearsing.  His performance, if ranked among his peers (i.e. the C-suite), would be at least 8 (out of 10). 

There is also an awkward hip-hopish video filmed onboard Deepwater Horizon by two Transocean’s rig workers to promote hand safety just a year before the rig explosion.   

It looks like Transocean has spent much focus on tranforming the blue-collar image traditionally associated with an oil serivce company.  However, one has to wonder if the Gulf oil spill could be prevented had the same devotion been dedicated to the Horizon rig by Transocean (RIG) as well as BP.
