Norway -Unions leave platform safety group -January 27, 2014

Based on harsh criticism of cutbacks in safety training the trade unions that represent offshore oil rig workers have pulled out of the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association's Network for Safety and Emergency Response Training (NSOB) that was established in the wake of the 1980 Alexander Kielland platform disaster in which 123 people died. The unions made the move reluctantly but were forced to make a statement after the industry group unilaterally instituted a number of changes that impair safety and emergency training on the continental shelf despite vociferous objections of workers.
