First Workers Complete New Industry Training Standard

The first downstream oil and gas workers have successfully completed safety-critical training under a new industry standard, OPITO revealed Wednesday.

Wild Geese Group (WGG) in Malaysia is the first company to achieve OPITO’s approval to deliver training as part of OPITO’s Onshore Petroleum Processing & Refining Facilities Standards, which were launched in November 2016.

Personnel from NUSAPETRO Sdn. Bhd onshore plant have been the first to undertake the training and assessment.

“This is a great success story of a training provider responding to the needs of the operators in its region and getting itself into a strong position to be able to deliver OPITO’s standards and further ensure the safety of those working in the onshore downstream sector,” OPITO Interim Chief Executive John McDonald said in an organization statement.
