As the oil and gas industry’s standards and skills body, OPITO welcomes any initiative which increases workforce safety in the North Sea and is committed to working in partnership with all our industry stakeholders to achieve it.
Since its publication, we have taken time to examine the detail of the report and are seeking to engage with the CAA to discuss the content, specifically in relation to the areas which relate to safety training. OPITO sent a letter on 10 March 2014 to request a meeting with CAA representatives at which clarification will be sought on key points raised of relevance to our training providers and those requiring safety training. The outcome of our discussions will be communicated to our stakeholders going forward.
