    Oil workers’ health and safety efforts recognised

    Ongoing efforts to keep North Sea oil workers safe are being been celebrated at an awards ceremony.

    Firms and individuals have been honoured across six categories of The Offshore Safety Awards at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.

    The event has been organised by Oil and Gas UK (OGUK) and Step Change in Safety – and 18 finalists made the shortlist.

    Members of both English and Scottish parliaments, as well as industry leaders, were among almost 300 guests given the chance to cast a vote. 

    Finalists had to create videos and pitches to explain what they have been doing to contribute towards safety in the workplace.

    Winners announced

    Dave Thomson, CAN Group offshore inspection engineer and safety representative, received the award for safety representative of the year, while EnQuest’s Derek Ellington took home the award for safety leadership.

    A new occupational health (OH) facility offering bespoke support measures led to Stork winning the award for OH.

    Industrial aviation experts Malcolm Garrington of CHC Helicopter and Russell Gould of Bristow Group won the sharing and learning award for their collaborative work on HeliOffshore, which promotes safety of offshore helicopters.

    American company Baker Hughes won the innovation in safety award, in recognition of its help towards the North Sea oil workers going a full 12 months without any recorded health and safety incidents, and Allan Smillie from Taqa was recognised for his telecommunication expertise, winning the prize for workforce engagement.

    High Praise

    Les Linklater, executive director of Step Change said the ceremony encouraged “the sharing of safety practices, experiences and knowledge both on and offshore”.

    Mick Borwell, health, safety and environment policy director at OGUK’s, said: “All our finalists and winners are to be congratulated for playing their part to ensure that we continue make improvements in our safety performance as an industry.”
