Construction HSE Hazards


The sites or yards where offshore oil and gas facilities such as modules and platforms, and onshore petrochemical plants are fabricated and constructed involve activities with high hazards such as working at height, confined space entry, rigging and lifting, hot work to name but a few. Moreover, these and other hazards vary in nature and scale and in the ways they are performed and controlled according to the respective construction site’s specific standards and practices.

Therefore, for personnel mobilized to and temporarily working in these sites, they must have a sound knowledge and awareness of the hazards and essential safeguards and controls to ensure they can not only stay safe but help those around them to stay safe too. This applies both to seasoned field personnel who from time to time move to different sites and personnel with minimal previous construction site experience.
