HSE ED - The Health, Safety and the Environment for the UK: The Health and Safety Executive Energy Division

Much of the health and safety regulation related to the Uk is stipulated by the governing body HSE ED, although large multinationals may have additional company-wider health, safety and environment compliance. Health and safety training comprises a part of multiple HSE stipulated aims. Most notably of these is HSE ED aim 2, that management and duty responsible personnel are competent in their roles towards mitigating and removing major hazard risks.

Offshore Activities in Oil & Gas

The HSE's Energy division is the responsible agency concerning offshore oil & gas operations. The overall goal is much the same as other HSE objectives: to ensure that potential accidents are prevented primarily through the elimination of safety hazards. Much of the regulatory body's force is aimed at management and supervisors Depending on where the central exploration unit is located, Oil & Gas industry operations may involve onshore or offshore expertise. The safety and quality standards may vary from a location to another, and need to be adjusted according to the terms and conditions of the exploration contract. Hence, professionals involved in drilling operations have to fulfill mandatory training that prepare them for the quality standards of the Oil & Gas work abroad, be acquainted with their local managing partners and operators, and make sure the products are delivered in the safest manner.

There are also multiple supporting industries working closely with the Oil & Gas industry to serve a variety of business and logistic needs. Many of these sectors will also require basic safe handling training and oil and gas specific training. Search the above courses for the accreditation that your work activities require, whether it involves working alongside offshore drilling operations or near hazardous materials.
