Helping the workforce to better understand worksite hazards

Joined-up Thinking seeks to provide the oil and gas industry with standardised educational packs that can help the workforce to gain a better understanding of the hazards they may face at a worksite.

Each of the short, informative and interactive packs takes around 30 minutes to deliver. They consist of a short film that highlights industry best practice, easy to follow speaker notes and a special bulletin that provides more detail about the incident covered in the video.

Joined-up Thinking packs cover a wide range of subject matters and are suitable for use in onshore and offshore safety meetings.



Joined-up Thinking engages and encourages people working in the oil and gas industry to improve their understanding of worksite hazards. It aims to promote open conversation about what could go wrong and what can be done to prevent it.

The learning packs are designed to increase the workforce’s awareness of different safety issues and give workers the tools and understanding to play their part in preventing worksite incidents.
