Oil and gas safety
We work for an incident and injury free industry, focusing on major incidents, which are a main concern of the industry and its various stakeholders.
We draft recommended practices, promote the integration of safety into every aspect of daily operations, work to develop a level playing field for safety across the industry, and collect the safety data that direct our activities.
Our key oil and gas safety topics
IOGP’s OMS framework offers an integrated approach and the flexibility to address some or all of a wide range of risks, impacts or threats related to occupational health and safety; environmental and social responsibility; process safety, quality and security.
