Abstract: Interventions like training courses can lead to the promotion of HSE performance and subsequently reduce work-related accidents, injuries and deaths from adverse effects of development of oil industry. This study aimed to investigate the effect of administrative interventions on safety and health among workers of PERLIT Company in phase 19 of South Pars, Iran. This descriptive-analytical study was conducted in the PERLIT Company during 2011-15. The study population consisted ofall employees of the company from January 2011-2015 (1800 staff). Various HSE performance indicators like Lost Time Injury (LTI), Lost Time Injury Frequency (LTIF) and Frequency-Severity Index (FSI) were studied. Interventions like registration of anomalies and short specialized trading courses had been done for these 4 years. Collected data were analyzed using Pearson correlation test through SPSS V16. In this company, 3171 TBM was conducted in 4 years and 77135 anomalies and 10 LTI were reported, respectively. LTIF was reduced from 1.5-0.3. As well as FSI, ASR and AFR showed lower amounts at the end of 4th year. The results of Pearson correlation test showed a significant correlation between anomalies and LTI, specialized trainings courses for HSE staff and LTI as well as Tool Born Meeting (TBM) and LTI. The results of this study showed that increasing the number of HSE training courses for staff, organizing specialized training courses for HSE personnel and increasing the numbers of hazard identification centers can be a valuable step to improve HSE performance and safety culture in oil and gas industries.
