Northern Offshore Receives Major Industry Health and Safety Accolade

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Northern Offshore, Ltd (“Northern Offshore”), operator of production and drilling vessels for the global offshore oil and gas industry, will be presented with a major safety accolade at the RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety Awards, later this year.

The company’s Energy Enhancer – a jack up rig designed specifically for harsh environments like those found in the North Sea – has been recognised with a Gold award as a result of Northern Offshore’s commitment to striving for continuous improvement in HSE standards.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), a safety charity, launched its awards programme 55 years ago. The scheme looks not only at accident records, but also entrants’ overarching health and safety management systems, including important practices such as strong leadership and workforce involvement.

David Rawlins, RoSPA’s awards manager, said:  “RoSPA firmly believes that organisations that have demonstrated their commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention deserve recognition.  Northern Offshore has shown that it is committed to striving for such continuous improvement and we are delighted to honour it through the presentation of an award.”

Northern Offshore will be presented with the award at a prestigious ceremony at the Glasgow Hilton Hotel, on Thursday September 22, 2011.

John Monks, general manager for Northern Offshore, said:  “This award is a further recognition that our Energy Enhancer crew members are firmly committed to the belief that an injury free offshore work place is an achievable target.  It is testament to the team on the Energy Enhancer and across the wider organisation for their ongoing commitment and dedication to safety awareness at work.”

The award comes on the back of a successful start to the year for Northern Offshore, which will see the company’s Energy Enhancer and Energy Endeavour jack ups in continuous work for the rest of the year.

“We have made an extremely positive start to the year,” added Mr Monks. “This is in part, due to the work we have carried out to ensure we maintain the highest possible standards of health and safety.”

Headquartered in Aberdeen, Northern Offshore operates oil and gas production and drilling vessels around the world. The company, which is registered on the Norwegian Stock Exchange, currently employs more than 300 people globally.
