Tackling the issues of importance

14 August 2019

Today EEMUA is attending a meeting of the Chemical and Downstream Oil Industries Forum (CDOIF) at the Unite the Union’s London offices.

CDOIF was established in 1997, bringing together UK regulators (Health and Safety Executive, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, Environment Agency, Natural Resources Wales, Office for Nuclear Regulation), industry bodies and trade unions. The core aim of the Forum is to inform regulatory and industry approaches to issues affecting the safety and health of people, sustainability and the environment.

Through its membership, the Forum is able to tackle issues of most importance to manufacturers, primary producers, service providers and those who work in the field. The group aims to adopt pragmatic solutions and develop long-term strategies to ensure that businesses and workers are heard on the issues that matter within the industry.

Today’s meeting includes updates on secondary containment policy, guidance on preparedness for climate change and development on guidance for cyber security for senior managers.
