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.
