The petroleum-industry is characterized with a lot of hazards and explosions. A report by the worldwide
offshore accident database reveals there have been 6,183 offshore accidents between 1975 and 2012,
with the accident toll increasing geometrically up till now. For an Oil and Gas company, best HSE
practice demands that employers help or as a matter of fact make it compulsory for employees to obtain
a petroleum safety training certificate. Most oil producing countries such as Norway recognizing the
hazards and risk of explosion associated with the petroleum industry do set up Petroleum Safety
Authority or Agencies. These agencies are saddled with regulatory responsibilities for safety, quick
emergency response and monitoring the work environment where petroleum activities are done. Often
times such agencies might require that workers engaged in petroleum-industry activities both offshore
and on land obtain a petroleum safety training certificate as part of their regulatory demands.
Petroleum safety training offered by Northlink Safety Training & Services provides a comprehensive
knowledge to both oil and gas company on how petroleum activities should be conducted in a prudent
