Commenting on the current concerns regarding coronavirus in the UK, Trevor Stapleton, OGUK’s HSE director, said:

“We’re already working with our members to share official advice on coronavirus (Covid-19) from the relevant bodies and will continue to work across the sector to ensure the health of the people in our industry. This sector is well versed in managing risk on complex safety and health matters, with robust processes and arrangements in place to ensure effective prevention measures and response. In addition to following the advice from health bodies and applying relevant procedures, individual operators will also decide further arrangements relevant to their specific needs, including travel and health advice. OGUK remains in regular contact with the relevant authorities to understand any further industry specific advice.”
