OPITO Safety & Competence
Conference 2014

Leading from the Front-line

The 5th Global OPITO Conference

This year's conference will explore the dynamic of effective leadership and change management on human behaviours in relation to safety.


Failure can often be traced to individual acts and behaviours which are influenced by culture which is, in turn, shaped by leadership. The fifth global oil and gas safety and competence conference will take a closer look at how leadership can implement long-term high value change and ultimately a safer workforce. High profile experts in their field and industry leaders will lead sessions which will:

  • Highlight successful leadership strategies and how they have improved the well-being of the workforce
  • Discuss how best to enact change and overcome resistance
  • Examine the psychology of individual, team and organisational behaviours in relation to decision making both in a steady state and during a crisis
  • Explore how training and competence influence decision and behaviours
  • Detail how OPITO products can form the bedrock of effective training and competence

Why should you attend?

OPITO Safety & Competence Conference 2012As 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.

The OSCC is the only annual, global event wholly focused on debating the issues around safety and competency in our industry in the way it relates to people. It brings together industry leaders, government bodies, regulators and training providers to share new thinking and best practice. As such this platform provides a unique opportunity to hear from safety leaders from other industries, learn about new thinking, find out more about global standards and new training practices and network with industry decision-makers who are committed to making the oil and gas sector safer for every employee, anywhere in the world.

Who should attend?

Anyone with an interest or influence in enhancing the safety of the oil and gas industry should attend but we anticipate attracting:

  • Decision-makers and safety leaders from IOCs, NOCs
  • Senior QHSE and HR personnel
  • Training providers
  • Government officials and regulators
