OFF4-5-Chart-Image-72dpiImplementing safety procedures in the workplace is necessary for all employers and employees. Complying with these procedures will help maintain a hazard-free working environment. This is why Pro-Visual Publishing, in partnership with the Australian Drilling Industry Association (ADIA) and the Australian Centre for Energy and Process Training (ACEPT) has released its most recent edition of the Oil & Gas Industry Guide to Workplace Safety. Demonstrating various ways to keep hazards at bay, this Guide is aimed to educate and inform all employers and employees.

Ever experienced a wave of nausea or dizziness when you are metres high off the ground? Never fear, you are not alone. Numerous oil and gas workers’ tasks involve working at different height levels on a daily basis. When you think about it, it is actually very risky as the fear of losing balance and falling is never too far from one’s mind. This fear usually comes true when scaffolding and mobile work platforms are incorrectly positioned.

Avoiding injuries and fatalities can be accomplished when working on-site. Identifying hazards, assessing risks and establishing control measures are just a few of the strategies to avoid these accidents from occurring. Not knowing what to do in the case of an emergency is a scary thought. This is why workplaces must introduce safety inductions to avoid panic and confusion in stressful situations.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Oil & Gas Industry Guide to Workplace Safety 2015/16. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
