What is CSTP?

The Common Safety Training Program (CSTP) provides a benchmark for safety training and preparation in the oil and gas industry.

Launched in 2010, the CSTP reflects the commitment of the Australian Oil and Gas industry to continually improve safety performance with over 8000 participants already completing the program.

The program is based on the demonstration of industry-established safe behaviours. It establishes a behaviourally focused program for workplaces and training organisations.

CSTP combines a structured off-the-job program followed by a period of workplace demonstration. It is recognised as a world leader because of its immersive, workplace simulation and hands-on approach to developing safety skills and culture from the onset of workers’ careers in the oil and gas industry.

It has introduced a consistent, reliable and high-quality process that allows companies to have confidence in entry-level safety training standards applied across the whole industry.
