Seminar on management and major accident risk

The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA) is holding a seminar in English on management and major accident risk at its Stavanger offices on 26 January 2011.


With top management from various enterprises as speakers, and several serious accidents and near misses in the petroleum industry during recent years as the backdrop, this is likely to be a highly interesting session.

The background for the seminar is a series of meetings conducted by the PSA with 15 different companies and licence joint ventures over the past three years.

Management representatives at these sessions have explained how they maintain an overview of and work to reduce the major accident risk to which their company is exposed.

The goal has been to focus attention on the information used by senior company executives and what action the latter take on the basis of these data.

A number of speakers at the seminar will share the experience of their companies and the challenges facing them in terms of the topics addressed by these meetings.

The PSA has summed up its key findings from the series in a report on managing the risk of major accidents in a governance perspective (link).

Everyone interested is welcome to attend the seminar.
