HSE Brewing up worker interest in offshore safety

HSE InfoLine : 25 August, 2004  (Company News)
The first edition provides details with links to further information including the current safety case regulation consultation, the working time directive, latest safety statistics and OSD's plans for tackling installation integrity and maintenance management matters.
The Health and Safety Executive's Offshore Division has launched a new information sheet, Tea-Shack News, aimed at giving offshore workers the latest safety news direct from HSE.

The first edition provides details with links to further information including the current safety case regulation consultation, the working time directive, latest safety statistics and OSD's plans for tackling installation integrity and maintenance management matters.

Commenting on the launch, Taf Powell head of HSE's Offshore Division said: 'For some time my inspectors have received feedback for direct information straight from the safety regulator. Tea-Shack News forms an important part of my division's plan and HSE's wider revitalising commitments, in getting key safety information to the workforce. These are, after all, the people, together with the support of their managers, best placed to make offshore workplaces safer.

'Working in partnership with employers and the Unions has brought some very positive progress towards better health and safety performance offshore. Tea-Shack News fills a separate need to have a direct pathway between the workforce and HSE for information and advice.'

John Taylor, Chairman of the Inter Union Offshore Oil Committee added: 'The introduction of Tea-Shack News will ensure that important safety information is given direct to the offshore workforce. This will also strengthen the existing strong links between HSE and workers.'

HSE Inspectors will be distributing copies of Tea-Shack News during the course of normal inspections. Additionally copies will be circulated to heliports and to dutyholders, trade unions and trade associations for distribution. An electronic version will also be available on the HSE website.
