Step Change in Safety is committed to working with the UK oil and gas industry to continually improve safety and make the UKCS the safest oil and gas province in the world in which to work.

An essential part of that mission is learning from previous experiences through collaboration. Our searchable catalogue of hundreds of Safety Alerts and Safety Moments are all designed as learning resources that can help improve workplace safety. All contributions remain anonymous to encourage sharing within the industry. No company names, platforms, fields, locations, dates and individuals are referred to in our Safety Alerts and Moments.

Safety Alerts give details of events surrounding an incident or near miss and provide good practice guidance in order to prevent similar issues. Safety Moments are downloadable PowerPoint presentations detailing an incident, near miss or good practice, and which provide discussion points and related resources for use as learning tools.
