Huge thanks once again to the fantastic judging panel, the voters, all the amazing finalists and both teams at Omniscient Safety Innovations Ltd & OGUK

It’s been a year like no other and our first real year in the business, we are so proud to be improving mental health within the industry and humbled that this has been recognised. To us this represents validation within the industry for systemic mental health solutions and real improvement

Commenting after the event, OGUK’s chief executive Deirdre Michie said:

“Congratulations to all our winners and finalists for their phenomenal achievements. It was an amazing event, with the offshore oil and gas industry coming together to celebrate its best and brightest in what has been one of the strongest headwinds our sector has ever had to face. 

“Although we could not be together in person, it is so important to highlight the progress our supply chain and businesses have made, and the continuous hard work of the people throughout our industry.

“The celebration is a super way to acknowledge great people, achievements and delivery, despite the current challenges we face.

“Looking to 2021, I believe the North Sea grit the people in our industry are known for will continue to help us move forward, with courage, co-operation and commitment.

“Thank you to everyone who participated, and to our members for their great support and the OGUK team for once again raising the bar to deliver such an excellent event that the whole industry can be proud of.”
