The mandated Common Safety Training Program (CSTP) is an industry requirement for all newly employed or contracted entrants into the offshore oil and gas industry. The introduction of a common safety training model for the oil and gas industry has been an initiative of CEOs from operating companies acting through the APPEA CEO Safety Leadership Forum.
As an industry leading training organisation, IFAP offers the CTSP as a three-day course in Perth. Our Common Safety Training Program (CSTP) is comprised of hands-on training followed by a period of workplace behaviour demonstration at our training facility in Perth. In essence, the program is focused on the demonstration of essential workplace safety behaviours as identified by oil and gas industry leaders.
On completion of the Common Safety Training Program (CSTP) course, participants should be able to have the skills and knowledge in the following subjects:
- Working within safety systems and processes
- Hazard identification and risk management
- Contributing to safe working practices
- Responding to workplace incidents
On successful completion of the course and workplace assessment, lodged within 12 Months, a Common Safety Training Program Card will be issued through APPEA (Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association).
Note: If not already employed in the oil and gas industry, course participants have 12 months from the completion of training to have started the workplace demonstration component. If the participant has not found work in the oil and gas industry after 12 months they will be required to undertake the one-day CSTP refresher course.
Light lunches, morning and afternoon teas are provided. For the in-class session covered footwear is essential. Overalls, hard hats, safety glasses and hearing protection is provided. Please bring your own pair of safety boots or enclosed footwear.
IFAP recommends completion of the TBOSIET or BOSIET course prior to enrolling in CSTP. The TBOSIET or BOSIET can be booked consecutively with CSTP or at an alternative time. Please contact 1300 432 700 for course prices and availability.
