Welcome to OSRL


Health, Safety, Environment and Quality

Our HSEQ strategy is based on four goals - promoting a healthy work environment, ensuring everybody’s safety, effectively managing our environmental footprint and striving for continual improvement in quality.

Health and Safety                                                                                                                                                                                        

We provide leadership, resources and training to continually assess risks and take appropriate actions to prevent injury or ill health. We comply with all applicable legislation, regulations and industry best practice, or higher voluntary standards that we subscribe to.

Our Life Saving Rules are the guiding principles for all the work we carry out and are used as the first step in effective risk management. Their consistent use sets out the minimum standards we require from everyone that works at, or visits, our sites.

Our employee health programme covers regular health assessments, vaccinations and adequate support for medical emergencies in remote areas, to ensure staff avoid exposure to unnecessary health risks.


At OSRL we are committed to environmentally sustainable work practices. We are stringent about the way we manage resource use in our facilities, how we store and use chemicals, how we minimise our logistics and travel footprint and ensure proper waste management procedures. 


Our quality systems ensure high standards of preparedness, intervention and response delivery to Members, and the management of HSE issues.

We follow an Integrated Management System (IMS) that is accredited through an independent assessment body, DNV.

HSEQ Policy                                                                                                                                                                                                    

We have adopted an integrated risk-based management system in accordance with OHSAS 18001(Safety), ISO 9001(Quality) and ISO 14001(Environment) standards.
