Training HSE consists of any pre-planned activity or measure whose objective will be to facilitate learning issues related to HSE. Learning means the process of causing relatively sustainable changes or related behavioral changes. Through training, the staff will understand hazards related to HSE and learn how to assess and control them. They will learn which tools they must apply in dealing with HSE hazards and make sure their activities will have minimum HSE hazards.

HSE Passport

Safety passport is issued by the HSE Department of North Drill for the staff after completing elementary safety course. All staff are required to hold this passport where training courses, promotions and warnings as well as medical data sealed by the Medical Council are recorded.

In order to facilitate access to people’s data and protecting the safety passport records, a software system has been developed to store the seven following categories:

  • Personal information (first name, last name,...)
  • Medical record (special medical conditions, medications taken)
  • Medical examinations and tests
  • Training courses (like HUET, well control, Coxswain, Advanced Firefighting on Helideck
  • Operation information (description of operational occupations)
  • Promotions (safe measures, safe conditions, ...)
  • Warnings (unsafe measures, unsafe conditions,...)


The most important safety trainings are divided into internal and external training.

External trainings include three-month training for HSE experts and compiling a training calendar for the first half of current calendar year. This safety course is planned and organized by the International School of North Drilling, during which HSE experts and engineers attend safety training (elementary safety, HUET, HLO/VHF, Advanced Firefighting, Coxswain, safety on drilling devices, HSE-MS, electricity safety, safety at heights, H2S training) and are awarded certificate at the conclusion of the course.

Internal or on-job training (OJT) includes electricity training for onshore drilling devices by HSE expert (reserved for HSE engineers, electricians and mechanics), training inspection of lifting gear on onshore drilling devices and offshore platforms by an expert from the technical inspection office, and training reaction in emergency conditions and firefighting by HSE experts (reserved for North Drilling staff members)

The idea behind OJT is to upgrade the level of knowledge and increase safety for employees at work. Planning, holding and registration of trainings are handled by the International School of North Drilling in collaboration with senior drilling experts.
