Health & Safety

Notwithstanding the sophisticated oil and gas H&S regimes in the UK and US, tragically, fatal incidents still occur. Yesterday, in the Gulf of Mexico, there was a fatality with three other workers suffering injury on a rig offshore Louisiana. The report says that the rig was not in production at the time of the explosion and that the US Coast Guard will investigate. No doubt further details will be released in due course and hopefully new measures can be put in place to prevent similar incidents in the future.
