Psychosocial risk management guidance note open for comment
NOPSEMA has developed a Psychosocial risk management guidance note in response to increased concerns about the unique work environment and living conditions experienced in the offshore petroleum industry. The heightened risk of exposure to psychosocial hazards has been further exacerbated by the raft of measures taken by industry in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The purpose of this guidance note is to provide dutyholders with information on how to evaluate psychosocial hazards and implement control measures to effectively demonstrate a reduction of risk to as low as reasonably practicable.
NOPSEMA invites industry to provide comment on this guidance note no later than COB Friday 22 October. Please submit all comments to NOPSEMA through our consultation hub.
