Delighted to have our feature posted on the Oil & Gas People site


It’s not every day our voices are heard but on this day it certainly was.

Our feature on mental health of workers within the oil industry has gained quite a lot of interest and we are delighted to hear it.

“Recognising and helping to support those employees suffering from mental health issues is crucial but so is creating and implementing a Mental Health Strategy” this statement is and will continue to be one of our main focus areas, to implement inas many workplaces as possible is our goal.

Creating awareness, creating safe spaces and equally as important to us.

“It’s good to talk” but now we need someone to listen!!

Last week I was having a discussion with a Director of an energy company, he told me the staff in the organisation were well looked after in regards to mental health as they had an employee support program in place. If anyone reached a point where their suffering became to much they could call to use the service. (That’s not a bad thing, but it’s only one element) This was despite having several people signed off with mental fatigue, work related stress or anxiety

My Answer:

The ship has sailed at that point. It’s also very difficult for an individual to recognise or accept they have mental health issues, that’s why we educate and train interventions. Early intervention and prevention is the key, by having an effective mental health strategy in place you will

  • reduce lost work days
  • reduce accident rates
  • prevent mental health workplace crisis
  • save on costs
  • increase productivity
  • improve morale
  • continual improvement
  • improved culture
  • retain staff
  • happy healthy workforce

The Director told me, they had shown the videos on “Its good to talk” I told him I think that’s great, but now we need to listen. Talk to the team at Omniscient Safety Innovations OSi today and we will assist you with an effective strategy #healthandsafety #mentalhealth

What are your legal requirements?

Starting a business can seem a daunting task, so allow OSI to remove the concern of meeting health & safety legal requirements.

In our experience the majority of small businesses do not comply with legal requirements under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, as they are unaware of their legal duties and do not have budget to employ a Health & Safety Manager. This can result in severe consequences such as accidents, fines, legal actions and court cases. OSi will ensure you comply with regulations allowing you to focus on running a successful business.

At OSi we want to ensure clients can implement health & safety legislation fundamentals at the commencement of trading, providing the assurance that no step has been overlooked. We offer an initial health & safety set up service for any business to support full compliance with regulatory requirements. Therefore protecting your company against fines, reputational damage or Health & Safety notices.

Mental Health in the Workplace

By not addressing mental health in the workplace, companies are suffering detrimental losses with mental health issues costing employers around 35 billion every year. According to the Centre for Mental Health 21.2bn is in reduced productivity, 10.6bn in sickness absence and 3.1 in staff turnover. However, it is impossible to determine the exact statistics as many mental health issues go unreported.

The Health and Safety Executive also estimate that 20% of all accidents occur due to some form of mental health issue, such as stress, anxiety or mental fatigue. The impacts of these can be significant on health, reputation and financial cost.

With this in mind OSI are very happy to announce we are now able to offer Mental Health Care Packages, we have identified that it’s not merely enough to provide Mental Health First Aid training but a complete infrastructure in support of a good mental health culture, these packages include but are not limited to, workshops, seminars, presentations, cognitive behavioral therapy, accredited First Aid for Mental Health courses and assessment toolkits. Our Mental Health Care Packages can significantly reduce costs, lost work rates, improve productivity and morale. These packages are bespoke and built to fit your organisations strategy.
