Evolution Of Safety - Oil, Gas, Refining & Petrochemical Industry

As our major project (outages, turnarounds & shutdowns) season draws to an end, it provides an ideal opportunity to recapitulate ESS Safeforce's specialist service offering within this renowned hazardous industry, where potential for accidents is ever-present. 

Today, safety is at the forefront of the oil, gas, refining and petrochemical industry. Thanks to a strong industrial culture of workplace safety and more advanced technologies to monitor and prevent injuries and accidents, we are more prepared than ever to tackle hazardous workplace environments by generating and implementing Safer Systems of Work, backed up by the employment of new and effective safety solutions.

ESS Safeforce has vast experience in supporting organisations, helping them to maximise conventional safety measures as well as investing in, and supplying, new technologies, all backed up with comprehensive analysis to ensure that rigorous risk management and safety protocols are in place.

Below we highlight some of the services we offer customers to help ensure their major project is completed on time, on budget, but more importantly, safely.
