THE ARTICLE

AN OFFSHORE workers-union is demanding better safety for its members.

Amicus, the biggest representative of offshore oil and gas workers, has questioned the effectiveness of Health and Safety Executive.

The union is seeking an urgent meeting with the Health and Safety Commission, about the HSE’s “apparent lack of effectiveness”.

It also wants a meeting with Lord Hunt, the Minister responsible for Health and Safety.

The union will approach energy giant Shell with a view to setting up an independent review panel, Amicus regional officer, Graham Tran, said; “It is necessary for immediate action to be taken on the very important issue of offshore safety and to win back the confidence of the offshore worker in relation to safety matters.

“The offshore worker must have confidence that any safety concern can be raised and that they will be taken seriously,”

Amicus national officer Alan Harvey said: “It is critical we have an independent and effective HSE.”
