The Chemical and Downstream Oil Industries Forum (CDOIF) is a collaborative venture aimed at delivering health, safety and environmental improvements with cross-sector benefits.
It does this through the sharing of information and identification by members of key issues and topics, agreement on appropriate action and the initiation of task and finish groups to deliver solutions, for example producing guidance that is jointly agreed between all parties. Matters of potential concern can where appropriate be escalated to the COMAH Strategic Forum (this would be where it is a strategic COMAH/Major Accident Hazard issue), and conversely the CSF can commission work from CDOIF.
NOTE: whilst these documents are written for the chemical and downstream oil sectors, they may also provide a useful reference to other high hazard sectors. The PSF website is a temporary home for these publications until a permanent base can be established.
