The Offshore Safety Awards – jointly organised by Step Change in Safety and Oil & Gas UK – has been postponed until Wednesday 17 August.

The decision was made by the membership organisations so both companies can focus closely on supporting the industry and workforce following the helicopter crash in Norway on Friday (29 April).

Les Linklater, Executive Director with Step Change in Safety, said: “The thoughts and condolences from Step Change in Safety and Oil & Gas UK go out to the families, friends and colleagues of those lost. While it remains vitally important to continue to celebrate the good work of everyone involved in delivering safety excellence, we have taken the decision to postpone the Offshore Safety Awards until later in the year.”

As the deadline for nominations has past (Monday 2 May) all submissions to date will be held and used in the forthcoming Offshore Safety Awards which were originally due to take place on 31 May.

Mick Borwell, Health, Safety and Environment Policy Director, with Oil & Gas UK, added: “We feel that our immediate priority is to continue to follow the events as they develop in Norway and ensure that the industry remains resolute in its commitment to safe flight operations.”
