Safety Induction Framework Launched
Safety Induction Framework
Subsea UK's Safety Forum has produced a common induction framework for safety in the subsea industry. This will ensure that everyone working offshore, onshore or on-board vessels in the subsea sector will receive a common induction process before beginning work. It has been developed by sharing best practice from the main contractors to ensure a common approach to inductions.
The guidance has been developed for contractors and sub-contractors to enable them to effectively brief their employees on what they can expect when travelling to and from working on an installation or vessel which could be alongside or at sea. The information has been produced in an easy to follow format using information extracted from a wide range of existing sources and provides direction on how to meet the induction requirements.
The training matrix within the framework outlines the overall training requirements that must be carried out for personnel working in an offshore environment.
Chief executive of Subsea UK, Neil Gordon, said: "This tool is a major step by the subsea sector to share best practice and allow a collaborative approach to safety training with the aim of further improving performance across the sector."
