Dräger Marine & Offshore has backed the efforts of the Offshore Safety Professionals Register (OSPR), the only membership organisation for offshore health, safety and environment (HSE) professionals.
OSPR was established to recognise and create opportunities for those working in HSE across the offshore industry and simplify the process for energy employers searching for competent HSE professionals.
Dräger Marine & Offshore has become OSPR’s first official sponsor, lending the organisation its support as the industry prepares to respond to continuing increases in activity throughout 2019. The two organisations will attend the OSPR HSE Event on Monday, 4 February, at Elevator in Aberdeen.
Globally renowned for technology and innovation in personal protection and specialist monitoring such as gas area detectors, Dräger is targeting system installation projects involving offshore assets, onshore facilities and vessels following similar successes over the last 18 months.
Kelly Murray, general manager for Dräger Marine & Offshore, says, “Our partnership with OSPR reflects our commitment to supporting safe working practices while maximising efficiency and productivity in operations on and offshore. We are supporting OSPR’s key event with a demonstration of our gas detection technology’s capabilities.”
Paul Millar, managing member and founder, OSPR, says, “The aim is to strengthen our ties in industry and highlight the excellent work being carried out by HSE professionals, but also push for higher overall standards.”
“Through Dräger’s continuing support at events, we’re able to learn from globally significant examples of training, research and development and best practice. Our members appreciate hearing about field proven technologies and having the chance to recognise where they might make improvements.”
Further events are planned throughout the year to promote safety solutions to the organisation’s 300 current member, affiliate companies, and the wider industry.
OSPR members are eligible for discounts on participation in Dräger’s training courses, including face fit testing, OPITO approved H2S and confined space.
