The UK’s oil and gas sector has grown substantially over the past 50 years, becoming a major contributor to the country’s economy in terms of revenue, technology and exports. The industry is now directly responsible for over 300,000 livelihoods across the UK, from Southern England up to the North East coast of Scotland, and is fundamental to day-to-day British lives, providing over 75% of the UK’s total primary energy. Given the UK’s reliance on the industry, the health of the people working in the sector should also be a high priority.
This Alcumus Sypol whitepaper looks at a key factor that should be considered when protecting people working in the oil and gas industry – the control of substances hazardous to health (COSHH). As a leading provider of COSHH management solutions to the sector, we’ve utilised our position to gather the thoughts and opinions of hundreds of oil and gas professionals in order to gain a comprehensive view of COSHH management across the industry.
