About the Industry

Step Change in Safety

Founded in 1997, Step Change in Safety is the UK-based partnership with the remit to make the UK the safest oil and gas exploration and production province in the world. It is charged with achieving this vision through cooperation, collaboration, sharing and adoption of best practice and learnings.

Membership of Step Change in Safety now includes the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and industry trade unions. The strategy, set by a leadership team, comprises:

·        recognising hazards and reducing risk

·        personal ownership for safety

·        asset integrity.

Engagement with the industry is sustained through active networks of elected safety representatives, offshore installation managers (OIMs) and supervisors and company focal points.
