BP lacked 'basic safety' in North Sea before Gulf of Mexico oil spill, HSE investigation finds

BP was subject to an investigation in the North Sea which found new staff were not trained to “basic safety standards” – six months before its Gulf of Mexico accident. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) began its inquiry after a complaint by a worker on the Clair rig off the Shetlands, near to where BP is about to begin deepwater drilling...The conclusions, sent to BP executives in a letter in October last year, found “training of some new personnel to basic safety standards was ineffective”...It comes as Tony Hayward, the chief executive of BP, prepares to be questioned on Wednesday by a panel of MPs on UK deepwater drilling...A BP spokesman said: “Clair has an excellent safety track record and has recently achieved six years of operation without any injury that has resulted in a day away from work.”...[also refers to Seawell]
