Covid-19 Hub

Workforce engagement & health and safety management


Workforce Updates


Our people are essential for providing energy and products to the UK, keeping Britain running during these unprecedented times, powering hospitals, fuelling vehicles for emergency services and key workers, and providing essential supplies.

OGUK is working on behalf of industry to secure government and regulator support which protects the safety of our people, ensures the safe production of secure and affordable energy, and mitigates the impact on jobs and businesses.

OGUK has teamed up with Step Change in Safety to launch a dedicated online hub with guidance, videos and FAQs about the industry and the impact of COVID-19. It aims to address concerns on the prevention and protection against coronavirus on the 150 manned installations across the UKCS including information films for those travelling by helicopter offshore and advice for the substantial onshore workforce. If you are a member of the workforce or have a family member working in the oil and gas sector, be sure to take a look: Step Change in Safety COVID-19
