Health risk assessment and management

April 2022

This report presents the recommendations that the Ipieca-IOGP Health Committee and Occupational Hygiene Subcommittee consider essential for optimal health risk assessment (HRA) and management within a health, safety, and environment (HSE) management programme.

This report addresses the incorporation of health risk management and its wider management in a company’s business and HSE management system, as well as the application of the HRA and management process for all activities and health hazards within the oil and gas industry.

The report is presented primarily from the perspective of field operations and projects in upstream activities, however, the underlying principles of health risk management are equally relevant to any operation type, such as midstream and downstream activities, office locations and contractor activities that support these operations.

There is an accompanying compendium containing useful tools and good practices.
