Safety training

bp’s safety goals are clear: no accidents, no harm to people and no damage to the environment. That is a huge responsibility – one we do not take lightly.

Our worker training combines rigorous standards, world-class instruction and sophisticated tools to prevent incidents and injuries. This training includes both classroom instruction and hands-on simulation. We replicate scenarios our teams are likely to encounter, as well as potential challenges that, though unlikely, we expect people to be ready to handle.




While bp instructs, trains and practices to prevent incidents, we also prepare our teams to respond should one occur. This way, we are prepared to act quickly to minimize the impact of an incident and protect people and the environment.

Even as we have prepared to respond to an incident, we also have worked hard to prevent any need for such a response. Among our many initiatives, we continue to work with industry members to improve standards on the safety and reliability of subsea blowout preventers and other critical equipment.


While frontline workers are most responsible for safe and reliable operations, our health, safety, environment and carbon (HSE&C) team and our safety and operational risk assurance (S&ORA) team offer additional and valuable layers of assistance and expertise.
