A key component to improving the Industry’s safety performance is the competence and behaviour of Industry personnel, particularly new starts.  Prior to introducing the ISI, the competence of personnel varied widely in the industry.  Common core safety competency requirements had not been established.

Many Contractors work for several Operators, often on various sites.  In the past, this led to duplication, cost inefficiencies and potential confusion via mixed messages when delivering safety inductions to workers as they moved from client to client and site to site.


Define a common agreed standard of core safety competence and a set of common agreed working behaviours for everyone working within the industry. Develop common agreed induction processes for assessing core safety competence and behavioural requirements. Provide a ‘ticket to work’ for all workers who satisfy competence and behavioural requirements and ensure that this ‘ticket to work’ is accepted by all industry Operators and Contractors.


The Working Group has published an Industry Safety Induction Specification and developed an associated training course to:

  • enhance the safety competence of all personnel in the Industry to enable them to carry out their duties in the safest manner possible thereby improving safety performance;
  • define the standard of safe working behaviour that is expected of all personnel in the Industry;
  • drive consistency and cost efficiency in delivering safety induction training to all personnel in the Industry.
