At the fifth annual OPITO Safety and Competence Conference (OSCC 2014), the chief executive of safety standards body, OPITO, will warn the industry that staying the same is simply not good enough and more effective leadership is required to drive a step-change in safety across the global oil and gas industry.

David Doig, group chief executive of OPITO, will make his comments at the start of this year’s OSCC, which is being held on the 4th of November in the Fairmont Bab al Bahr Hotel, Abu Dhabi. The only global event wholly focused on safety and competence in the oil and gas industry, OSCC will bring together industry leaders, government bodies, regulators and training providers to share new thinking and best practice.

Mr Doig said: “The global oil and gas industry has to change in its approach to safety and competence. Staying the same is simply not good enough. Despite improvements, too many major and minor incidents and accidents are still happening from the Gulf of Mexico to the North Sea, from the Middle-east to South-east Asia.”
