Salus Technical has published a potentially life-saving guidance document based on extensive research into confidential non-compliance letters that the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) sent to offshore duty-holders in 2019.
Using the Freedom of Information Act, the team obtained the information and used it to produce an anonymous database. They went on to produce a guidance document grouped by inspection topic, breaking down the detail of each topic, highlighting common areas of concern, and offering real, actionable advice to prevent major accidents happening in the future.
Each of the non-compliances was resolved by the duty holder before the HSE released the information, “a powerful signal that the industry takes its safety obligations very seriously,” Salus Technical said January 30. Founder David Jamieson (pictured below) led the team’s analysis of 147 non-compliance letters. The document may be downloaded free at https://salus-technical.com/hse-research-2019/
