Press & Journal.co.uk: Talks on offshore safety concerns

Trade unions have held a meeting with health and safety officials in Aberdeen to discuss concerns about the offshore industry.

The talks followed a report into the deaths of two workers on Shell’s Brent Bravo platform in which a sheriff criticised the company.

The Oil Industry Liaison Committee, Transport and General Workers Union and the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers raised a number of issues at the meeting with the Health and Safety Executive.

They called for more independent offshore inspections, a stricter enforcement of improvement orders on install- ations and greater consultation with workers.

Keith Moncrieff, 45, and Sean McCue, 22, died in September 2003 after being overcome by gas while inspecting a temporary repair on a leaking pipe.

Jake Molloy, of the OILC, said the Brent Bravo incident highlighted the need for a more thorough inspection process.
