Technical safety & HSE

Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) are overriding considerations for all activities in the petroleum industry. Technical safety focuses on safety in design. Identifying and eliminating hazards in the design phase is often significantly more economical and practical than making changes later when hazards become real risks to people or assets.
