Exploration and production activities continue to expand to more remote regions. A health inspection guideline defining preventive control measures for occupational and public health concerns at remote sites was developed. The program was introduced in the company's drilling organization for selected operations in Africa and Asia. This paper describes the primary health risks facing multi-national petroleum companies in remote regions. Results and findings from the trial use of the inspection guidelines are presented. Additionally, the authors provide recommendations on how a preventive health inspection program can be integrated into existing systems for managing safety and health to insure that health issues are consistently addressed from project planning through operations.
