change text size

The UK Oil and Gas Industry Safety Awards saw seven awards given out to energy sector firms and professionals this year.

The awards ceremony, held in Aberdeen Wednesday,  saw the first-ever Award for Workforce Engagement go to the Brent Delta Decommissioning Team in recognition of its actively embracing worker engagement on safety matters as it embarked on the decommissioning of Royal Dutch Shell's Brent complex in the North Sea.

Petrofac's Control of Work Team won the Ideas in Safety prize, while Stork Technical Services and Banff and Buchan College shared the Award for Innovation in Safety.

Several individuals who work in the oil and gas sector also won prizes recognizing their achievements in health and safety. Kent Lanier, rig manager at Rowan Drilling UK, won the Award for Safety Leadership. Marc Brankin, a scaffold chargehand on the Brent Decommissioning Project, won the Award for Most Promising Individual.

Scott MacDonald, offshore electrician with Archer, won the Award for Preventative Safety Action. And Nicky Elphinstone, a steward with Aramark, won the Award for Safety Representative of the Year.

Oil & Gas UK Health and Safety Director Robert Paterson commented in a statement:

"The UK Oil and Gas Industry Safety Awards has once again brought to the fore an inspirational group of people and organisations. The winners, and indeed everyone nominated, are actively doing great work to keep the safety of our people at the forefront of our industry.

"The importance of celebrating these great achievers cannot be understated. This year the safety awards have been the biggest and best yet with a record number of entries and a record number of people attending the ceremony itself."

Les Linklater, a team leader for Step Change in Safety, which helped to organize the awards with Oil & Gas UK, added:

"“The safety awards are growing every year and this year we expanded the awards to include a new category which recognises effective workforce engagement, while we continue to tap into the workforce’s creativity with the Ideas in Safety Prize."
