BESPOKE solutions provider RMI has given its support to a charter aimed at improving and supporting the mental health of North Sea workers, becoming the latest signatory in industry wide efforts led by the North Sea Chapter of the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC).

With over 20 years of health and safety provision to the offshore industry, RMI is well positioned to utilise and build upon its existing mental health provision to further promote and encourage open conversations about mental health and well-being.

Alex Janzen, Chief Operating Officer at RMI, commented: “At RMI we are committed to staying at the forefront of medical service provision, and we are delighted to be a signatory of this charter. We are proud to stand alongside our colleagues within the offshore industry, to promote and encourage employers to consider mental health to be as important as physical health in the workplace.”

RMI joins a range of organisations, including Noble, the Port of Aberdeen and Borr Drilling, in supporting the initiative in order to effect positive change within the offshore energy industry.

The charter is set out to create a shared framework that organisations can adopt throughout the industry, forming a universal, joined up approach using key learnings and sharing them with peers. Instigated by the North Sea Chapter of the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC), it includes contributions from almost 200 representatives from operators, contractors, psychologists, and third sector organisations.
