Safety Forum's mandate and priorities

The Safety Forum is to be the key tripartite HSE arena in the petroleum industry.

The Safety Forum aims to contribute to increased knowledge and understanding of why and how the Norwegian oil and gas industry should be a pioneer industry as regards HSE, both on a national and international level.

We achieve this through the Safety Forum:

  • being represented by managers, HSE personnel and key decision-makers among the parties in the industry and the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway, and with the Ministry of Labour and Social Inclusion being an active observer
  • facilitating and stimulating cooperation and debate on key HSE challenges in the petroleum activities, both offshore and at onshore facilities
  • being a consultation arena for, a driving force behind and an initiator of strategic HSE projects and processes within the framework of the PSA's area of responsibility
  • being a driving force behind the dissemination of information and knowledge regarding HSE and the development and establishment of positive HSE cultures and practices between the parties and the authorities according to Section 1 of the Working Environment Act.
