SLC Launch New Online English Course for the Oil and Gas industry


Online English for Safety in Oil and Gas


Specialist Language Courses (SLC) and our partners, Accent International, are delighted to launch a new online English course, specifically designed for the oil and gas industry, Online English for Safety in Oil and Gas.

This 22.5-hour course draws on many years’ combined experience providing English language programmes to a wide range of oil and gas companies, including BP, Shell, Chevron, Saudi Aramco, Lukoil, Schlumberger, Halliburton, Baker Hughes and Technip.

Online English for Safety in Oil and Gas gives technical workers the English language skills they need to work safely and to communicate effectively with colleagues in what can be highly challenging circumstances. Learners focus on a broad range of safety-critical language, from essential signage to permits to work, giving handovers, maintaining tools and equipment, reporting incidents, and dealing with electrical, fire, vehicle and environmental hazards.

Each section covers a wide variety of language and communicative scenarios. Taking this course ensures workers can understand and implement safety instructions, minimise the risk of accidents and incidents, improve workplace safety standards and participate in a pro-active safety culture.

Perfect Preparation for the Safety English Test

SLC and Accent work in partnership with the owners of the international Safety English Test (SET):  Language Solutions International and the Atlas Knowledge Group.

The Safety English Test is an online English Language competency test, designed specifically to assess English language skills within the context of health and safety. SET provides a consistent and reliable international English language standard for the Oil and Gas industry.

Online English for Safety in Oil and Gas prepares workers to achieve an intermediate (B1) level in SET, reassuring companies that staff can communicate effectively in safety-critical scenarios.
