Oil and Gas UK Health and Safety Report 2015

3 July 2015

The usual very comprehensive annual report from OGUK that’s a reminder of the wide range of hazards that can affect the offshore workforce, and the sustained efforts needed to manage these effectively and consistently across the UK sector.

The full report can be downloaded and read on your PC, tablet or smartphone. There’s lots of positive news, including from some of the statistics, for example how the UK sector injury rates compare with other industries. But some of the data is more worrying, for example two of the three sector-level KPIs linked to asset integrity seem to indicate no recent improvement, and possibly a deterioration?

Eleven ‘focus areas’ for 2015 are listed, again emphasising that industry OSH professionals (and senior leaders) need to be adept at ‘keeping lots of balls in the air’ without dropping even one!
