IMIST (International Minimum Industry Safety Training) is an OPITO standard which supports the global Oil and Gas Industry to meet safety initiative targets. The aim of the IMIST programme is to introduce delegates to the key safety elements required by all employees working in the oil and gas industry. It also ensures the knowledge and understanding of these basic safety elements are maintained and current amongst the existing workforce.
This introductory safety training programme is designed to introduce the fundamental safety elements of the oil and gas industry to new starts, giving an appreciation of the potential hazards and controls that might be encountered by personnel working within the oil and gas industry.
The IMIST programme has been developed to provide a new global standard for Health and Safety training, which will provide a comprehensive and consistent level of training across the world and enhance workforce safety and compliance. The IMIST standard ensures that workers have the necessary safety awareness and training to reduce risk and ultimately reduce the number of incidents.
