Like many industries, the offshore oil and gas sector has responded to COVID-19 by adopting and applying new approaches to ensure critical business continuity and the health of its people under unprecedented and challenging circumstances. 

As the offshore energy regulator, NOPSEMA has responded to the threat by drawing on improved techniques and the collective efforts of industry and other regulators internationally to diversify the way it does compliance monitoring of industry risks. 

NOPSEMA CEO, Stuart Smith says the pandemic has resulted in a greater willingness for stakeholders, including industry, government, workplace representatives and regulatory bodies in Australia and overseas, to share information to deal with problems collectively, leading to faster and improved results.
