BP, Chevron, Shell, and ExxonMobil have been actively involved over the last several years in the
development of consistent, minimum health, safety and the environment (HSE) training requirements
for the contractor community.
The process is known as SafeGulf.

Under SafeGulf, all contractors must fulfill the SafeGulf HSE orientation requirements prior
to working on operator premises in the Gulf of Mexico. BP, Chevron, Shell and ExxonMobil consider
the new requirements a step in the right direction to ensure a level playing field and a standard
program for quality HSE training and knowledge retention of those contractor personnel that perform
work on operator property.
The Key elements are:
All contractors must provide minimum training/orientation as described under
SafeGulf - additional specialized skills training may be necessary based on the
services your company provides.
All contractor personnel must be listed in the SafeGulf Database (administered
by ISNetworld) prior to working on operator premises starting May 1, 2006.
