Hi ,

Monday July 6th 2020 marks the 32nd anniversary of the Piper Alpha disaster in which 167 men lost their lives. It remains the worst offshore oil and gas disaster in history.

To commemorate the event, Step Change in Safety has compiled a downloadable resource pack which can be used to help our industry remember the disastrous consequences of uncontrolled major accident hazards and remind people what they can do to play their part in preventing major accidents.

The downloadable resources pack contains:

-Remembering Piper: The Night that Changed our Lives film

-Own Your Barrier: Major Accident Hazard Awareness films and PowerPoint presentation

In honour of all those who perished that night, we encourage you to download the pack and take time out to remember and reflect on the importance of remaining vigilant at your worksite, protecting yourself and your work colleagues.

Remembrance Service

Step Change in Safety will also be joining the Pound for Piper Trust at their planned virtual remembrance service to pay our respects to all those who lost their lives on that tragic night. The service will be available on the Pound for Piper YouTube channel from 9am on Monday 7th July. A link will also be published on the Step Change in Safety website.

What can you do?

Over the next full working rotation, we would encourage every shift to visit this pack to remind themselves of the impact of a major accident and how everyone can influence the safety of a worksite by playing their part.

Please Play your Part.

Stay Safe

The Step Change in Safety Team
