The date and topic for this year’s OPITO Safety and Competence Conference – OSCC 2014 have been announced. Now in its fifth year, the annual event will take place on November 4, 2014 in the Fairmont Hotel, Abu Dhabi.

Under the title of “Leading from the Front-line”, the conference will explore the dynamic of effective leadership and change management on human behaviors in relation to safety.

Over 400 delegates and 25 exhibitors are expected at OSCC 2014 where leaders from the oil and gas supply chain and world-renowned experts in change management will participate in keynote session and panel debate on how leadership can implement long-term high value change and ultimately a safer workforce.

David Doig, group chief executive for OPITO said, “As the industry moves into even more challenging environments and emerging oil and gas provinces in order to exploit hydrocarbons, the challenges of local content, skills shortages and a fragmented approach to training and standards impact on our ability to ensure a safe and competent workforce.

The OSCC is the only global event focused on debating the issues around safety and competency in our industry in the way it relates to people. It brings together industry leaders, government bodies, regulators and training providers to share new thinking and best practice. This platform provides a unique opportunity to hear from safety leaders from other industries, learn about new thinking, find out more about global standards and new training practices and network with industry decision-makers who are committed to making the oil and gas sector safer for every employee, anywhere in the world.”

Last year’s event, which attracted over 350 delegates from 25 countries, was opened by the Minister of Energy for the United Arab Emirates, Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei.

International training standards body, OPITO, devised the event as part of its drive for common global standards across the oil and gas industry to improve safety and competence.
