“Site owners should both support and mandate nationally recognised schemes, like the CCNSG, to ensure these workers receive the high quality of training they need while ensuring the transferability of personnel both within the sector and across the wider industry.
“As we strive towards Net Zero we must work towards a zero harm legacy. Anything else will tarnish the achievement of the energy transition. Safety training saves lives. Priority MUST be given to protecting the workforce.”
