Launch of 'Infectious disease outbreak management'

IPIECA – IOGP launch Infectious disease outbreak management, a manual for the oil and gas industry.

This manual provides guidance for local management and operations personnel on the prevention, identification and control of infectious disease outbreaks in locations where personnel live and work together in close quarters, such as on offshore installations, on-board ships and at remote camps.

It addresses facility preparations for an outbreak, investigation of the outbreak, transportation of affected personnel and provides advice on reviewing lessons learned to enable continuous improvement in the management of infectious diseases. The appendices contain management tools, training resources and awareness training tools that can support those dealing with infectious disease outbreaks.
