The date and topic for this year’s OPITO Safety and Competence Conference – OSCC 2014 have been announced. Now in its fifth year, the annual event – the only one of its kind wholly focused on safety and competency in the oil and gas industry - will take place on 4th of November 2014 in the Fairmont Hotel, Abu Dhabi.
Under the title of “Leading from the Front-line”, the conference will explore the dynamic of effective leadership and change management on human behaviours in relation to safety.
Over 400 delegates and 25 exhibitors are expected at OSCC 2014 where leaders from the oil and gas supply chain and world-renowned experts in change management will participate in keynote session and panel debate on how leadership can implement long-term high value change and ultimately a safer workforce.
David Doig, group chief executive for OPITO said: “As the industry moves into even more challenging environments and emerging oil and gas provinces in order to exploit hydrocarbons, the challenges of local content, skills shortages and a fragmented approach to training and standards impact on our ability to ensure a safe and competent workforce.
