Oil & Gas UK Praises EU Directive on Offshore Safety

Following the European Commission’s announcement of agreement on an EU Directive on offshore safety, Robert Paterson, Oil & Gas UK’s health, safety and employment director issued a response.

He stated: “Oil & Gas UK has worked tirelessly to highlight the very real damage that an EU Regulation could have done to workers’ safety. The Commission’s decision today to establish a Directive on offshore safety is the best way to achieve the objective of raising standards across the EU to the high levels already present in the North Sea. The UK oil and gas industry looks forward to working closely with the Commission to help disseminate North Sea experience and good practice across Europe by ensuring the Directive is appropriately worded.”
