HSE management & contracting

NEW! A tip sheet on contract modes and an addendum to IOGP Report 423-02: Health management contract guidelines for clients and contractors

Contractors are critical to the vast majority of oil and gas operations, IOGP’s own safety data shows how over the past 30 years there has been a growing trend for clients to increasingly use contractors.

In 2017 IOGP updated its guide for HSE management throughout a contract lifecycle (Report 423) to:

  • align with IOGP 510 – Operating Management Systems Framework (2014);
  • place further emphasis on the collaboration between clients and contractors, and their respective responsibilities – including subcontracting; and
  • focus on risk management and assurance mechanisms.

Tips - Sheets

These short Tip-Sheets provide practical implementation guidance on various 423 topics. More to come!
