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.

Any company associated with the oil and gas industry can enter the Employers Award if they can demonstrate their commitment to building a safe and competent workforce through the use of OPITO standards. Criteria to be judged will include the rationale for adopting the standards, range, number of staff trained or assessed to OPITO standards in the last 12 months, geographical location and examples where OPITO standards have shown an improvement in safety and competence.

The OPITO Approved Training Providers Award recognizes the training provider which best demonstrates its commitment to developing the skills of their staff to deliver OPITO training. Criteria examines the range of standards used in the development program, the number of staff involved over the year, structure and timeframe of the development program and examples of innovation in learning and development.

Nominations must arrive no later than Friday 23 August and further details can be found at www.opito-oscc.com.

The awards will take place at the one day conference, which this year has the theme of delivering a safe, competent, sustainable workforce. Upwards of 300 delegates from around the world are expected to attend the event.

This will be the OSCC’s fourth year after it was introduced as an annual event 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.

Speakers already announced for the event include Richard Cregan, CEO of Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management Leo Koot, managing director of TAQA Bratani, Guy McLear, regional HSES director at McDermott Middle East Inc, and Paul Groves, managing director of Petrofac Training Services.
