The Norwegian Coastal Administration's objective is to carry out all our activities in a safe and responsible manner without harm to personnel, the environment or material assets.
In collaboration with NOFO (Norwegian Oil Spill Prevention Association for Operator Companies), the NCA has prepared the HSE folder Oil spill response, which consists of three parts.
Part 1 deals with organization, rules and requirements, Part 2 is a guide and part 3 is an HSE handbook. In addition, there are a number of useful attachments such as the HSE plan, safety data sheet and form for reporting adverse events (RUH).
The goal is to inform all emergency personnel about health, environment and safety work during oil spill response operations. The HSE handbook is based on experiences from several incidents with acute oil pollution and from a large number of exercises.
Before participating in an oil spill response operation or exercise, we ask that you study the handbook carefully and actively relate to it.
Health, safety and the environment are a continuous process. If you have any suggestions for changes to the HSE folder or handbook, or are missing something, we will be happy to hear from you. The manual can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
