Abstract This booklet on safety and health in the offshore oil sector is aimed at operators, contractors, trade unions, safety representatives and individual employees. It offers advice on implementing management systems that encourage a culture that values constructive engagement with the workforce. It focuses on the four key principles of control, competence, cooperation and communication. In addition, it features a number of case studies that illustrate the benefits that a positive approach to worker involvement can bring as well as what can go wrong in the absence of such an approach.
