Offshore Safety Awards deadline approaching

The countdown is on to enter this year’s Offshore Safety Awards.

The annual event celebrates individuals and companies who go beyond the call of duty to make the UK Continental Shelf safer.

Individuals who are passionate about, and have spearheaded safety initiatives within their company, are invited to enter one of the awards’ six categories.

For the first time there is a new category: the Operational Integrity Award, which recognises a company’s overall operational safety.

All entries must be submitted by Friday May 26 with the shortlist being published at the end of June.

All finalists will have the opportunity to attend an interactive event and awards ceremony at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in August where they will pitch their safety initiative directly to attendees.

During the event attendees from across industry can visit the finalists’ stalls and vote live.

The categories include: Sharing and Learning; Workforce Engagement; Innovation in Safety; Safety Representative of the Year; Safety Leadership and Operational Integrity.

The event is jointly organised by Oil & Gas UK and Step Change in Safety, with Maersk Oil as principal sponsor.
