The UK Oil & Gas Industry Safety Awards ceremony due to be held on 21 April 2010, at a lunchtime event at Ardoe House Hotel, will acknowledge significant contributions to safety by individuals and companies within the industry. The list of awards to be presented will cover five categories in total.
The Innovation in Safety category in which Sparrows has been nominated recognises companies that have demonstrated an innovative approach to safety through the implementation of a new process or technique.
The four other categories to be presented are:
- Safety Leadership, which recognises a highly motivated individual who works to ensure their team consistently works in a safe and professional manner
- Safety Representative of the Year, which recognises active participation and effectiveness in promoting the industry's safety agenda
- Preventative Safety Action, which recognises an individual who successfully intervened to prevent a potential incident
- Most Promising Individual, which recognises an individual who has embraced the safety culture in the oil and gas industry
Gordon McCombie, group business development manager, said: "We are delighted to be finalists for an award focused entirely on safety innovation and feel proud that our endeavours to make pedestal crane maintenance safer has resulted in Sparrows being shortlisted alongside BP and Bristow Helicopters."
