Center for Offshore Safety (COS)
The Center for Offshore Safety (COS) promotes the highest level of safety for the U.S. offshore natural gas and oil industry, partly by convening industry experts to develop good practices. These includes good practices that provide guidance on implementing a Safety and Environmental Management System. COS focuses on API’s Recommended Practice 75, which serves as the offshore industry’s safety and environmental management systems program, or SEMS, providing a systematic methodology for companies to identify and manage risks. COS also helps companies comply with the API standards that have been adopted by the main regulatory agency for the offshore industry – the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement.
