Rig Safety Officer Training Course - OSHAS

Rig Safety Officer

OSHAS developed Rig Safety Officer Course that aims to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding and knowledge of the following job functions of the Rig Safety Officer. These are the course's scope and objectives. A Rig safety officer is typically a mechanical or a petroleum engineer who possesses a significant amount of drilling experience as well as a variety of safety certifications. He is aware of the challenges that are a natural part of the drilling process as well as how these obstacles can become hazards on the rig floor.

On an offshore drilling rig, the Rig Safety Officer acts as the facility manager's representative in all matters pertaining to the rig's safety. He offers training in safety that is based on the regulations and requirements of national safety agencies, such as OSHA in the United States and the Health and Safety Executive in the United Kingdom. In addition to this, he is responsible for ensuring that all contractors who come aboard the rig meet the safety standards of the drilling company and for providing ongoing safety education to the personnel of the rig, as is required by the policy of the drilling company. He keeps a record of the briefings and training that are given to new employees and contractors alike.

He is responsible for ensuring that workers at the drilling company comply with all of the safety standards and procedures established by the company. Continuous safety inspections, including inspections of the drilling operation, are carried out by him while he is on board the rig. He makes an effort to instil a culture of safety awareness among the crew members of the rig. In his capacity as the rig's sanitarian, he is responsible for carrying out sanitation inspections in the living areas and the galley. These inspections ensure that the rig's berthing areas are clean and that the galley staff adheres to the appropriate procedures for food preparation.
