The European Parliament introduced a new Offshore Safety
Directive in 2013 to ensure that major accident hazard risks are
regulated consistently using a Safety Case approach throughout all
EU Member States that have an offshore oil and gas industry. This
Safety Directive was implemented in response to the Macondo major
accident. The Directive echoes much of the arrangements that
already exist in the UK's approach to regulating offshore major
The Health and Safety Executive and the Health and Safety
Laboratory have over 20 years of regulating major accident hazards
in the UK's offshore oil and gas industry. We have experience and
expertise in operating a goal setting legislative framework
requiring each offshore installation to have an accepted Safety
Case which identifies the major accident hazards and the
arrangements that owners and operators of installations have put in
place to reduce those risks to as low as is reasonably practicable
In response to a number of inquiries from Member States we are
offering a 3 day training workshop on how we assess a Mobile
Drilling Unit Safety Case. The workshop will be presented by
experienced Managers, Inspectors and Specialists from HSE's Energy
Division - Offshore who are involved in the assessment of Safety
Cases, Inspections and dealing with Notifications.
The workshop will cover
- A refresher on the EU Offshore Directive
- Concepts and principles of managing major accident hazards
risks, process safety and ALARP
- Learnings from the Piper Alpha disaster that are still relevant
- The detailed technical & legal compliance assessment of a
mobile drilling unit Safety Case from receipt of the Case to final
- The Inspection of a Wells Notification
- The Inspection of a mobile drilling unit covering key areas
such as well control, the well examination scheme, Safety &
Environmental Critical Elements, Safety Management System, Lifting
Operations, as Emergency response arrangements
