The UK offshore oil and gas industry is regulated by the Offshore Division (OSD) of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) of the United Kingdom. The regulator has emphasized the importance of the industry’s safety performance based on health and safety issues and activities that drive or affect industry performance.
Who sustains this? The Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), a wholly-owned company of the Government of Dubai, which develops downstream and upstream activities in the oil and gas sector. Saeed Khoory, Chief Executive Officer at ENOC, asserts that “ENOC’s name will become synonymous with industry best practices across multiple industries and markets.” How is this going to happen? Through the right performance management approach.
