Andrew Dingee, Author and SEMS expert,
The oil and gas industry is strictly shifting to a zero tolerance policy, similar to the aviation industry which has always been a zero tolerant sector. With increasing regulations and reducing oil prices, making sure that operations are not disturbed are key priorities for every company in the region. In order to do this, both the workforce, and the processes have to work together, in harmony to ensure sustainable and efficient use of resources, and elimination of hazards and incidents.
The following workshop will:
  • Discuss how relevant the aviation industry and oil and gas industry is and will discuss ways to increase workforce performance in achieving process safety excellence
  • Address key areas leaders should focus on to reduce incidents from occurring and achieve an overall safety in an organisation
  • The workshop leader will share personal experiences in both the aviation and oil and gas industry and will discuss best practices in achieving process safety excellence
