Presentation from June Networking meeting

14 June 2016

Bob Egan, an offshore Safety Rep (OSR) currently seconded to HSE, gave personal insights from his experiences as both an elected OSR and an HSE Inspector since April 2015.

His presentation, which was mainly verbal and so is not fully reflected in the Powerpoint, covered both good and less good current practices for workforce engagement. It was good to hear there were more in the first than in the second category. He has been developing a new Inspection Guide on Workforce Engagement that will highlight 12 areas for review during HSE’s planned inspections on this topic.

As with other Guides for Inspectors, it will be available publicly when published in Q3 2016 via a link on HSE’s Offshore Inspection webpage, and there will be an Offshore Group news item to alert you as soon as it’s available.
