'Delivering a safe, competent, sustainable workforce'
OPITO International held its fourth conference focusing on global safety and competency in the oil and gas industry. OPITO Safety and Competence Conference (OSCC) focussed on how the oil and gas industry can deliver a safe, competent and sustainable workforce.
The conference took place on 19th of November in Abu Dhabi and explored how a global approach to training standards, frameworks, qualifications and quality assurance of the training supply network add value for employers and what this means for individuals in the workplace.
The date and venue for the 2014 conference will be announced in the coming months.
OSCC is the only forum where the global oil and gas industry comes together in support of its workforce. With increasing challenges on the development of a sustainable workforce to support existing and emerging oil and gas markets and intensifying scrutiny around safety and competence, this unique event is the ideal platform to demonstrate industry commitment to its workforce now and in the future.
OPITO as leaders in the safety revolution and proponents of change will outline how its products are building a safer and more competent workforce, from the North Sea to Oman and Iraq and beyond.
OPITO is heightening its campaign for common global training standards across the oil and gas industry to dramatically improve safety with the launch of a short film.
Following its world premiere at the 2013 OPITO Safety and Competence Conference in Abu Dhabi, the short film has been sent out via email and social media channels to oil and gas employers, workers and stakeholders in every oil-producing country around the world.
The film outlines OPITO’s quest to have every oil and gas worker, no matter where in the world, trained to OPITO standards.
