    A focus on.....The IECO meeting

    September 2014

    This month we showcased our new offices by hosting the quarterly IECO (International Energy Consultants) meeting. The meeting was attended by representatives from current member organisations involved in the oil and energy consultancy business. This quarter's agenda covered topics such as health and wellbeing when working offshore and income tax legislation.

     

    Prompted by a recent article in the press, attendees discussed the topic of BMI in relation to physical fitness and the safety impact when working offshore such as helicopter transport and casualty/rescue scenarios. Although Oil and Gas UK medical fitness guidance no longer takes into account BMI ratings, it is understood that Oil and Gas UK work groups are aiming to address the subject and IECO members will be keeping up to date with any changes that may occur from this.

     

    For more information on IECO, its members and its work please visit the website www.ieco.org
