Employers and training providers are invited to submit nominations for the annual OPITO Safety and Competency Awards 2013 which recognize organizations that achieve the highest safety standards in the oil and gas industry.

The accolades will be presented at the OPITO Safety and Competency Conference (OSCC) held at the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel, Abu Dhabi, UAE on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. Shell is the headline sponsor of the event which is also supported by SEFtec and Atlas.

These OPITO awards recognize companies who are committed to building a safe and competent workforce through OPITO standards.
