COVID-19 Latest Statement

We have published two more Country Specific Plans this week; Israel and Cameroon with a further two in production.  We are also in the process of translating some of these plans into the relevant local languages.  

Following a tanker collision incident (which did not involve any OSRL Members), our APAC team took the opportunity to use this as a table-top exercise scenario to test our ability to respond.  A report on the lessons learned can be found here

As we noted in last week’s communication, OSRL is in the process of taking the principles detailed in our document on Specific Measures for In-Field Response and applying these as appendices to our existing TPR-specific Field Guides.  The first two of these; for Offshore Containment & Recovery and SCAT can be found here

OSRL continues to release episodes for the Crisis Management Principles and the COVID-19 Crisis podcast series.  The second episode is called ‘Is PIMA (Pandemic Impact Mitigation Assessment) the answer to rebooting society safely after lockdowns?’ This episode draws analogy from the field of oil spill response to get a crisis management perspective on this question and is available to download via our technical library.

OSRL’s training team continues to be busy delivering Remote Training experiences for our Members.  We are happy to share a case study of an OPEP Level 2 course we delivered for Wintershall which you can also download from our technical library

To complete our suite of strategic support documents available to our members, we have now added our COVID-19 OSRL Wellness Plan on the website.  Whilst this is primarily an internally-focussed document, we nonetheless thought it would be beneficial for Members to be appraised of actions OSRL is taking to protect the mental health and well-being of our personnel at this time. 

Our free webinar series to support our Members continues next week and beyond.  Upcoming webinars include:
