STEP Change Network Meeting
1 December 2010
Petrotechnics met with the STEP Change for Safety group in Aberdeen on 18th November to discuss Human Factors and Workforce Engagement. The group brings together 140 onshore and offshore safety representatives from operating, contractor and drilling companies to discuss safety concerns, initiatives and improvements for the oil and gas industry.
STEP Change are working together to encourage workforce engagement in safety related issues. Over the course of 2010, the Workforce Engagement group has collected the views from the workforce on obstacles to workforce engagement in order to better understand leadership behaviours that promote effective workforce engagement. The information has helped the group to develop “A Practical Guide to Workforce Engagement” including a survey tool. Both of which will be available for use in 2011.
The next meeting is scheduled to take place in January 2011.
