HSE's Offshore Division (OSD) is responsible for the offshore oil and gas industry. Our mission is to protect people's health and safety by ensuring risks in the changing workplace are properly controlled. Our current priorities are:
Onshore and offshore health & safety jobs, a rewarding career in a positive, flexible environment.
In 2010 HSE’s Offshore Division launched KP4. This inspection programme aims to improve the management of the consequences of the ageing of UK offshore installations, especially given the growing demands to extend their use beyond the original design life. KP4 will run until December 2013 and this interim report describes the progress of the programme to date.
Oil and Gas UK are holding a major offshore safety conference in Aberdeen on 18-20 June 2013 to mark the 25th anniversary of the Piper Alpha disaster. Lord Cullen has been confirmed as the keynote speaker, and HSE’S Judith Hackitt and Steve Walker will be participating in this event.
