In Summary I t is important to manage the health and well-being of the offshore workforce effectively, given the remoteness of the worksite and the often demanding nature of the work they perform. A suite of occupational health-related legislation regulates the offshore working environment to ensure that risks to health are controlled. In addition, it is industry policy that all persons working offshore are examined regularly by a medical professional and deemed medically fit for work before travelling offshore. The Oil & Gas UK medical guidance and the registered examining doctors who conduct assessments in line with this guidance help to ensure that the workforce is medically fit for work offshore. The UK offshore oil and gas industry is also committed to protecting people, the natural environment and assets by maintaining safe operations. The industry continually strives to improve personal and process safety, using performance indicators to monitor how well this is being managed. Personal safety metrics point to industry’s performance in managing risks to an individual. However, to minimise harm to people, the primary focus for a major hazard industry must be on process safety, and the effective containment of hydrocarbons and the associated hazards.
