Offshore Safety Awards

This year's Offshore Safety Awards are jointly organised by Step Change in Safety and OEUK and supported by principal sponsor Harbour Energy. The awards have become an integral part of Step Change in Safety’s annual safety event, which this year will be focussed on ‘Positively Influencing Safety’. This prestigious and much-anticipated event will be held at Aberdeen’s iconic Beach Ballroom on Tuesday 4th July.

Book your tickets now to get front-row seats to see who brings home the fantastic awards:

The aim of the Offshore Safety Awards is to acknowledge, showcase and recognise the outstanding contribution that individuals, teams, and organisations make to improve safety at their worksites and across the wider industry. The awards and ‘Positively Influencing Safety’ event have been scheduled to coincide with the week of the 35th anniversary of the Piper Alpha disaster, in order to bring the offshore industry together to engage, inspire and most importantly act, as they remember those that lost their lives on the 6th July 1988.
