EI collaborates with global energy companies to create workforce health and safety tool


Incident lessons and safety insights from leading oil and gas companies are being made freely available to frontline workers through Toolbox, an innovative new web-based app to be demonstrated by the Energy Institute (EI) at next week’s Offshore Europe 2019.

Developed by the Energy Institute (EI), Toolbox is a free to use, web-based app, that allow users to access health and safety information in bitesize and video formats.

Featuring content based on real life incidents, Toolbox has been created in partnership with several leading global oil and gas companies, and can be accessed on the go through the web-based app.

Martin Maeso, Good Practice Director at the Energy Institute commented:

“Toolbox truly puts safety in the hands of energy workers, allowing users to find safety information that is right for them.

“This impressive resource is a great example of the industry coming together to equip workers with the skills and knowledge to carry out operations in a safe and responsible way, helping to better ensure that everyone works safely.”

Toolbox allows users to browse over one hundred case studies and safety information, with content classified by work activities or by high risk situations. Content can also be saved for quick access, as well as viewed offline when users have no internet connection.
