Governments must ensure an income for fossil fuel workers when they are in-between jobs. The government also must initiate a jobs programme. This would help workers find new jobs quickly.

Offshore training costs £1,800 and the worker pays it instead of the employer. This must change. An offshore training passport must be created as the offshore training is the same for fossil fuel and renewable jobs, workers should not have to pay for the same qualification twice. Alternatively, the training fee could be paid by the government or employer. Removing this economic barrier will allow workers to switch to the renewable industry with no extra cost.
