||Managers in the offshore oil and gas industry have recognized that a lack of skilled workforce, change to shorter working hours and increase in activity can lead to an erosion of safety and health unless balanced by significant increase in level of training and supervision. This report explores some of the means of responding to this need, based on improving comprehension of major hazards by the workforce and optimizing the management processes such as balancing workforce competence and level of supervision. By improving comprehension of major hazards, the workforce itself can play a central role in safety case preparation by being involved in identifying real improvements in safety that are reasonable and based on the day-to-day grass-roots operational experience of various disciplines.
