Minimum Industry Safety
Training for Downstream Operations

MISTDO seeks to address the high rate of incidents caused by
personnel working in the downstream sector of the Oil and Gas industry which
have resulted in loss of lives, destruction of infrastructure, downtime in production,
loss of revenue and environmental pollution.

Clarion College is NMDPRA foremost approved training provider for Minimum Industry Safety Training for Downstream Operations (MISTDO) which is a basic safety training requirement that must be undertaken by all personnel working in the downstream sector of the Nigerian oil and gas industry. It is a major component of the Safety Audit Clearance policy launched by the Department to reduce risks and occurrences of accidents in the downstream sector of the Oil and Gas industry.

 

Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority MISTDO seeks to address the high rate of incidents caused by personnel working in the downstream sector of the Oil and Gas industry which have resulted in loss of lives, destruction of infrastructure, downtime in production, loss of revenue and environmental pollution.

 

The outcome from previous Investigations reveal that poor safety knowledge and culture and a dearth of competent personnel in this sector are major causes of these incidents. Thus, to eliminate or reduce to the barest minimum future occurrences of these incidents, the Department in line with its mandate to enforce policies & programs for the safety of people, the environment and Oil and Gas infrastructure, developed MISTDO.
