Following the development of an electronic Control of Work system – WorkSafe® – in 2009 Cresent began looking to Iraq for business.

Cresent won a contract to design, programme and deploy WorkSafe® across 26 facilities from a central server at the Rumaila oilfield. WorkSafe® was designed with multi-language capabilities, allowing users to use the system in English, Arabic and Mandarin.

A comprehensive training programme, including 30 e-learning and classroom courses, was developed to support the new procedures. All training material was developed in multi-language. Furthermore, Cresent facilitated the training of over 750 Iraqi nationals in Edinburgh over a 9 month period – training included 5 separate topics in Arabic.

In 2014 Cresent was awarded a further 3 year contract for Phase II of the project.

Following the success of the Rumaila project Cresent won a second Control of Work system deployment in Iraq for the West Quarna II oilfield, making Cresent the most influential provider of Control of Work systems and HSE training programmes in Iraq.

Being able to provide all of the systems, documents and training in both English and Arabic has been a key success factor for Cresent in Iraq.
