ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
by Greg Anderson

I believe you can learn something from every person you meet, and I want to take this opportunity to thank those people who have shared their knowledge with me:

Richard Haut & Tom Williams for having the insight to recognize how the Safety 24/7 principles could go from saving people’s lives to saving ecosystems. You are truly making a difference on this planet we call home.

Alice Adams for believing anything we do together is possible. You are one phenomenal lady.

Bob Lorber – For your input on Safety 24/7

Those who walked beside me on my journey, you know who you are.

My daughters, Brittany, Makenzie, and Kendall for all they are teaching me about how to be a father.

My wife, Robin. This book would be twice as long if I wrote down all the things I am grateful for; I wish everyone could be as lucky as I am.

There are numerous folks that have crossed my path, each one has provided insight into the world around me, enhanced the experience and, sometimes without their knowledge, given me direction.

Greg Anderson and Tom Williams for their dedication and drive in making this book a reality.

To the third musketeer, Dave Burnett, who keeps the other two of us real.

My ‘green’ mentors, in particular, Pliny Fisk and Brian Yeoman, who constantly remind me that I can do good things.

The men at Lord of Life Lutheran Church in The Woodlands for keeping it all grounded.

Kirk Petersen, my life-long friend, who assisted in placing the skeletons in the closet and works side-by-side with me to keep them there.

Annette, my partner and companion for life. Thank-you for helping me throughout this life, more than you ever will know.

Our children, Naomi, Noah and Ruthanne, their spouses, Sage and Beth, all their children and foster children, past, present and future, for teaching me about the circle of life.

My parents, Dick and Ruth Haut, gone from this life, and never to be forgotten. They started it all.

Finally, my sister, Sue Hart, whom is always there for me to antagonize.

My former CEO at Noble Corporation Jim Day demonstrated that a company can develop a stellar safety culture to lead an industry, inspire a new generation of leaders and be profitable. His vision of developing a similar environmental culture in the energy business challenged me to apply what I had learned in my career to form the Environmentally Friendly Drilling (EFD) Program. This crazy idea would not have been possible without having talented and “like-minded” partners and friends like David Burnett and Rich Haut.

I inherited my passion for fishing from my dad Clyde Williams, who showed me it was secondary to the love of our country, family and the environment.

My best friend Jim Toombs who shares a belief that having any success in life comes from having good friends, luck, skill and lots of persistence.

The nicest person in the world is my wife Gale, who has tolerated, supported and encouraged my passion for the EFD program despite the lifestyle compromises. We would do it all again in a heartbeat.

Greg Anderson’s talk about Safety 24 /7 made Rich and I know a book on Building a Culture of Environmental Awareness would be an important tool for the student debating career choices, the guy on the frontline and the CEO all getting on the same page. We greatly appreciate his excellent work and passion. This is a story about how to truly develop the right type of culture.
