Oil Rig “safety” culture and #bullying

Juking the Stats #94.  The game is the game, you feel me?

This from the Guardian – “North Sea oil culture needs to change” by Terry Macalister

One offshore worker, who has spent 20 years in the industry, told the Guardian that serious injuries continue to be covered up rather than reported while “lost time accidents” – a key industry safety measurement – can be manipulated by keeping injured employees on board a rig until it is time for their leave.

Jake Molloy, Aberdeen-based offshore organiser at the RMT union, supported the claims, estimating that the safety reporting structure and industrial relations, in general, were either “poor or completely dysfunctional” on 40% of North Sea rigs or platforms.
