2013 in Review: A Year of Evolution
As we look back on 2013, we recall a year full of change and growth. Regulatory updates, functionality updates, new industries and new products all contributed to last year’s developments.
Some significant regulatory changes occurred in 2013. The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) required all offshore operators impacted by their Safety and Environmental Management Systems (SEMS) requirement to submit their first SEMS audit last November. During these audits, offshore operators used ISNetworld’s Training Qualification tool to verify their contractors’ individual level training.
Also in November, OSHA proposed a new recordkeeping rule that will require all businesses with more than 250 employees to submit their electronic safety records on a quarterly basis. ISN contractors will find themselves ahead of the game since their quarterly records are already updated in ISNetworld.
