Safety 30: Nothing More Important Than Ensuring Safety of Those Offshore
Day 2 of the safety conference in Aberdeen is in full swing.

Nothing is more important than ensuring the safety of those offshore.

That is what Paul Wheelhouse MSP, the minister for business, innovation and energy in Scottish government, told industry delegates on day two of the Safety 30 conference in Aberdeen.



The Safety 30 event, which has garnered almost 700 attendees, is looking at how the legacy of the Piper Alpha incident shaped current offshore operations. Safety 30 was organized by Oil & Gas UK in association with the International Regulators’ Forum.

Oil & Gas UK’s chief executive, Deirdre Michie, opened the second day of the conference with a summary of the opening day’s events, which included presentations from Martin Temple, chair of the Health and Safety Executive, and Lord Cullen, whose public inquiry into the 1986 Piper Alpha incident led to the health and safety regime the industry has today.



In addition to an opening presentation from Michie and a keynote address from Wheelhouse, day two at Safety 30 has also included speeches from Hari Vamadevan, senior vice president at DNV GL Oil & Gas, and Malcolm Banks, wells solution centre manager at the Oil & Gas Technology Centre.
