Conference chair Gordon Ballard presents the award for OPITO Training Provider of the Year to MSTS/Falck Safety Services Malaysia.

The winners of OPITO’s annual global oil and gas workforce safety awards have been announced in the presence of Suhail Mohamed Al Mazrouei, the Minister of Energy for the United Arad Emirates.

SBM and MSTS/Falck Safety Services Malaysia were yesterday (Tuesday, November 19) named Employer of the Year and Training Provider of the Year respectively at the OPITO Safety and Competency Conference in Abu Dhabi.

The global annual awards recognizes companies that best demonstrate their commitment to building a safe and competent workforce through OPITO standards and are presented at the OSCC.

The conference was supported by headline sponsor Shell as well as IHRDC, SEFtec, Atlas and Gulf Technical & Safety Training Center.

Global floating production and mooring systems provider SBM was chosen after adopting OPITO principles in its operations and training efforts and for its commitment to achieving continuous safety performance improvement. The majority of the company’s 1,700 offshore personnel are trained to OPITO survival standards and the courses are mainstays of SBM’s survival requirements. More than 51 offshore installation managers and deputies passed the Controlling Emergencies coaching and assessment during 2012.

MSTS/Falck Safety Services Malaysia uses train the trainer and OPITO competency assessor courses as part of its induction program. All of MSTS/Falck Safety Services Malaysia’s 20 OPITO approved standards are included in their internal training matrix, with all 30 trainers involved in the program. A continual development program ensures all trainers remain competent and are briefed with any changes introduced by OPITO.

The other organizations to be shortlisted for Employer of the Year were Stork Technical Services and Total ABK Academy, while IFAP and PT Samson Tiara were also included in the Training Providers category.

David Doig, from OPITO, said, “The outstanding quality of this year’s entrants demonstrates that organizations are reaching the highest standards in safety across the oil and gas industry. It is pleasing to note that an increasing number are looking to standardize their training and implement a recognized set of procedures.”

The OSCC was introduced in 2009 as a way to bring operators, contractors and the supply chain together with training organizations to provide a forum for improving standards of safety and competency that protect the workforce and the industry’s reputation.

More than 350 delegates from around the world attended the event which explored how a global approach to training standards, frameworks, qualifications and quality assurance of the training supply network can add value for employers.

It also examined what these procedures mean for individuals in the workplace.
