IOGP Life-Saving Rules

Published 8 April 2013

This report outlines a set of IOGP Life-Saving Rules which can be used in the oil & gas industry to mitigate risk and reduce fatalities.

The Rules focus on modifying worker and supervisor behaviours in the workplace by raising awareness of the activities which are most likely to result in fatalities and simple actions individuals can take to protect themselves and others.

Each IOGP Life-Saving Rule consists of a simple icon and descriptive text, with additional detailed guidance to explain why the Rule is important and what aspects workers and supervisors should focus on. Each Rule is also linked to controls and barriers which if used properly can circumvent fatal incidents.

The report also provides guidance on how to communicate and effectively implement these rules within companies.

Version 2 sees only minor changes to the report itself but a major re-design of the various supporting materials.
