Abstract This Order revokes and re-enacts with amendments the 1995 Order (see CIS 98-1064), which extended the coverage of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (see CIS 74-2099) to certain premises and activities (offshore installations, wells, pipelines, mines, construction and other ancillary activities) in the territorial seas adjacent to Great Britain. The major change with respect to the previous Order is the inclusion of diving projects, energy-producing structures (fixed or floating structures producing energy from wind or water) and the transfer of people or goods to or from structures associated with offshore activities.
