In recent years, USSA Global has gained significant experience in assisting companies in or servicing major oil and gas projects, in managing aspects of their health, safety and environmental systems.
Maintaining a Great Safety Record For Oil & Gas
According to the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA), for more than a decade, the petroleum industry’s safety performance has been better than those in the construction, transport, manufacturing and mining industries. However with the significant growth occurring in this sector, it’s more important than ever to maintain the focus on health, safety and environmental risk mitigation.
In line with the industry’s ongoing improvement in safety performance, USSA Global can assist your organisation in continuously improving your systems to ensure that responsibilities are clearly outlined and understood and all personnel on site, including direct employees and contractors, are protected from the hazards associated with the oil and gas industry.
The Value of Experience
Our experienced consultants are able to assist in the implementation of Integrated Management Systems and advise on the management of industry-specific hazards such as;
- working in confined spaces and at height
- working with/near high pressure pipelines
- adverse weather
- explosive, flammable and/or toxic gas
- the use of new technology
- corrosion and failures in plant, pipework and detection systems
- failures in contractor management
- maintenance programmes
- permit systems
USSA Global Consultants can be provided to your on/offshore site as additional HSE support when required and can be employed to oversee specific projects or to provide expert advice on specific safety, health and environmental issues relating to production processes, drilling and working in hostile environments.
Our consultants can also be employed to assist in making improvements to your environmental performance and environmental impact statements, for example by advising on the use of closed systems and ensuring adequate monitoring arrangements are in place.
