ISSoW Performing Authority

The Integrated Safe System of Work (ISSoW) is an important part of any oil and gas company’s Safety Management System as it helps to ensure that all work is planned, communicated, controlled and carried out in a safe manner.

The Atlas ISSoW online training programme is split into two levels specifically designed to provide ISSoW training for Work Party Members and Performing Authorities, respectively.

The training programme aims to provide learners with a broad understanding of the ISSoW, the different types of Work Control Certificates, the general and specific roles and responsibilities, as well as the procedural steps involved in an Integrated Safe System of Work.

The programme focuses on the rules, roles and responsibilities and legislative compliance involved in operating a Safe System of Work. The programme is not intended to replace any specific ISSoW software training.

Successful completion of the courses within the programme means that there will be no need to undertake any further site-specific ISSoW courses. However, to keep their skills up-to-date it is suggested learners complete refresher ISSoW training at least every two years.
