What is MISTDO?

MISTDO is a basic training scheme developed by the department of petroleum resources to act as a safeguard against risks and injury occurrences. It stands for Minimum Industry Safety Training for Downstream Operations and is a requirement for ALL personnel in the downstream sector of the Nigerian oil and gas industry. It was launched as a major component of the Safety Audit Clearance policy with the aim of creating a safer working environment from top to bottom.

Why MISTDO?

The high rate of incidents caused by personnel in the downstream sector have been a cause for concern for decades. This high frequency of incidents often results in loss of lives, destruction of infrastructure and environmental pollution has spurred the need for a more conscious and intentional approach to be taken towards sensitizing personnel about the best safety practices in the industry. Data suggests that a lot of these incidents are as a result of a poor safety culture and therefore an inflow of resources into this segment can go a long way in reversing these negative statistics.

Objectives of MISTDO?

1. Enforce safety training requirements in the downstream sector.

2. Increase awareness in safety and risks associated with operations in the sector.

3. Improve knowledge and general competence level in the sector.

4. Standardize basic safety training requirements for personnel across the sector.

5. Serve as a reference or guide for prospective trainees in basic safety.

6. Provide a platform to effectively monitor and regulate basic safety training activities in the sector.
