To ask the Secretary of State for Energy what provision his Department is making for safety and survival courses for offshore workers.
§ Mr. Peter Morrison
It is for an employer to ensure that his employees are adequately qualified and trained for the duties they are required to undertake. The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 places a duty on an employer to provide the necessary instruction, training and supervision to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of his employees.
