OPITO Global – The Safety and Competence Conference, is the only international event focused on debating the issues around safety and competency in the energy sector. It brings together industry leaders, government bodies, regulators and training providers to share new thinking and best practice.

The event, which has Falck Safety Services as headline sponsor, brings together E&P companies, supply chain businesses, regulators, training providers and other organisations to achieve the common global aim of helping people go to work and get home safely.

Now in its ninth year, the 2018 theme is ‘Skilled for Safety’. More than 400 delegates are expected at the free-to-attend event, which is open for registration. Last year saw people travelling from the UK, US, the Middle East, Europe and Asia Pacific to take part.

The 2018 keynote speakers are confirmed as:

• ‘Miracle on the Hudson’ co-pilot Jeff Skiles, who helped safely land a stricken passenger flight on New York’s Hudson River with 155 people on board, will outline how mandatory safety training and teamwork saved lives.

• Top US Navy elite fighter pilot and globally renowned safety expert, Jack Becker. He will be revealing how his “human error management tools” have impacted significantly on safety performances at Top 100 Companies and what the oil and gas industry can learn from them.

OPITO Global will see an additional technical forum available on the 8th November as an optional subsequent day session. It is expected that around 150 delegates from OPITO’s global network of approved training companies, as well as industry practitioners, will attend the technical forum to delve deeper into the details of delivering the high quality of standards that OPITO sets for the sector around the world.
