Working Together for Safety

"Working Together for Safety" is one of the most extensive collaboration projects initiated within health, safety and the environment (HSE) in the oil and gas industry.

Participants in the project are oil companies and supplier companies and trade unions represented through the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association, the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO), Lederne, Industri Energi, Fellesforbundet, Korrosjons- Isolerings- og Stillasentreprenørenes Forening (KIS), Norsk Industri, the Norwegian Shipowners' Association (NSA), The Collaborating Organisations (DSO) and The Petroleum Safety Authority.

The project concentrates on safety on offshore installations, onshore installations and on board vessels on the Shelf and focuses on all conditions that affect the nature of the work and framework conditions. This entails, among other things, focusing on corporate culture, structure, organisation and management.

The project will contribute towards:
  • improving safety in the oil and gas industry offshore
  • reducing the risk of personal injury and major accidents
  • improving the employees' and their family's trust in the industry
  • strengthening trust and co-operation between the players in the industry
  • improving the reputation of the industry
  • The work takes place through recommendations to the industry. The work takes place through recommendations to the industry.
