Australia's National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Management Authority (NOPSEMA), has decided to take direct steps to help protect and support offshore oil and gas exploration platforms from the risks associated with COVID-19 (new coronavirus). Since offshore facilities are confined places where workers are mostly close to each other, the chance of spreading infectious diseases increases.

NOPSEMA instructed all platform operators to review their infectious disease management plans in relation to COVID-19 and to pass on to all employees the latest information provided by the Australian Department of Health and the World Health Organization. The agency is also encouraging inspections to ensure that operators implement effective preparedness and response plans.
