Common Safety Training Program (CSTP) is an industry initiative administered by APPEA. This initiative has recently become an industry mandate, as is the requirement for TBOSIET / BOSIET. As of the 1st of January 2012, Australia’s Oil and Gas industry adopted CSTP as a core foundation of safety skills in the workplace. The aim is to ensure all personnel working in the Oil and Gas industry in Australia to have been assessed as competent against defined core safety units.
