Offshore Safety Awards

The Offshore Safety Awards are to recognise, showcase and celebrate the outstanding contribution that individuals, teams, and organisations make to improve safety at their worksites and across the wider industry.

Jointly organised by Step Change in Safety and OEUK, this full-day, free-to-attend event includes keynote presentations, panel sessions, networking, drinks reception and of course, the Offshore Safety Awards.

A flagship annual event, hosted this year at The Aberdeen Beach Ballroom on 2 July, saw the audience participating in the judging and ultimately deciding on the category winners.
