HEALTH, Safety and Environment services company Stirling Group is offering a new course tailored specifically to meet the needs of those with safety responsibilities and duties within the Asia Pacific oil and gas sector.

Stirling was recently approved to deliver the UK-based National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) international technical oil and gas certificate course.

The company will also continue to provide the NEBOSH international general certificate (IGC).

Stirling Group’s global head of workforce development Mike Palmer said revising courses to better suit the current industry conditions was vital and thatthe safety of the workforce must be a priority.

The company’s oil and gas certificate runs for five days and focuses on international standards and management systems.

Candidates are taught to achieve and maintain workplace safety aims, both onshore and offshore and the importance of process safety and risk management.

“We provide genuine experts in their field to host our courses and equip those attending with the relevant knowledge and skills to ensure they are fully trained to the highest possible standards in safety,” Mr Palmer said.

Due to the previous successful delivery of the NEBOSH IGC, the board had extended its accreditation for a further three years.

The NEBOSH qualifications are part of the wide range of courses within each of Stirling’s service lines offering training across the oil and gas spectrum, from English language skills, incident management, business continuity, well drilling and advanced firefighting.

Stirling provides training programs for operations in the energy sector, accreditations include IOSH, industry qualifications, highfield, business continuity institute, JOIFF, RoSPA, IADC, DECC (oil spill) and OPITO.
