Australia has a great opportunity to learn from overseas industry practices. In two weeks the APPEA HSE Conference will highlight UK operations.

Step Change in Safety (SCis) is the UK-based, not-for-profit, member-led organisation that “aims to make the UK the safest oil province in the world to work in”. It is viewed as a leader in profiling safety management and awareness in the UK petroleum industry.

As an independent organisation that represents the workforce, regulators and employers it has a strong story to tell.

On Day 2 of the APPEA HSE event, delegates will hear from Mr Les Linklater, Executive Director of SCiS. His keynote address will deliver a unique perspective on safety in the UK industry and key lessons to learn.

“Tripartite working for safety improvements: The features, issues, benefits and proofs” will be presented, in the session ‘Human factors in HSES issues management’, on Thursday 26 October.
