Subsea Common Safety Induction Framework Launch

25 May 2011

We would like to invite you to the launch of a new pan-industry safety initiative entirely focused on the subsea sector.

The first-ever common Safety Induction Framework for people working in the subsea sector will be unveiled at 12 noon on 25thMay in the Forbes Suite at the AECC.

This is the first in a series of initiatives led by Subsea UKs Safety Leadership Forum and which has been delivered by the Subsea UK Safety working group, comprising senior safety professionals across the subsea construction contractors who have shared valuable knowledge, experience and safety statistics and have analysed the root causes of common patterns.

A key finding from the working group was that a high proportion of reportable incidents have been associated with sub-contractor and supplier staff and this was a clear target for early action. The Common Safety Induction Framework addresses this issue and is targeted at new and inexperienced personnel, particularly those who are sub-contractors and transient staff on subsea assets, although it is equally applicable to all personnel who visit or work on vessels or marine bases.

This initiative is freely available via Subsea UKs website and is designed to radically improve safety offshore, onshore and on-board vessels and is embodied in an easy to follow electronic publication that illustrates aspects of common induction that personnel need to be aware of and should have in place before arriving at the work site.

Lunch will be served at 12noon with the presentations and launch at 1pm. The event is scheduled to finish at 2pm.

If you would like to attend please email  by close of business on 23rd May 2011.
