Impact on Safety

COVID-19: While every member of the workforce, from the worksite to the boardroom, is immersed in this rapidly developing COVID-19 situation, it is the duty of Step Change in Safety to continue reinforcing the need for diligence in the pre-planning and execution of work activities offshore.

We will continue to communicate with industry via a series of information bulletins which will be published on our website and digital media channels over the coming weeks. As part of our continued engagement strategy, these short broadcasts and information packs will focus on the Step Change in Safety’s 7Cs of safety:

  • Change Management
  • Communication
  • Control of Work
  • Competence
  • Complacency
  • Commitment
  • Culture
