Step Change in Safety was founded in 1997 by the Oil and Gas industry trade associations with the aim of reducing all the UK offshore Oil and Gas industry injury rate by 50%.

By 2002 a new vision was created: “The UK is the safest place to work in the worldwide oil and gas industry by 2010” and Step Change moved to operate under the PILOT umbrella.

Membership of Step Change now includes the UK Health and Safety Executive and the Trade Unions. It is this broad stakeholder base that makes the Step Change group effective across the whole industry.

In 2010, they launched their five year Strategic Plan 2010-2015, setting out how they would go about making the UK the safest oil and gas province in the world.
