On the second day of the Oil & Gas UK’s Piper 25 conference, speakers discussed about the safety lessons learned from major accidents in other industrial sectors.

The objective of the event is to bring together people from across the global oil and gas industry to reflect on the lessons learnt from the Piper Alpha tragedy, review the evolution of offshore safety and reinforce industry commitment for continuous improvement.

Hon. Justice Haddon-Cave QC, chair for the review of the wider issues in relation to the loss of the Nimrod aircraft in Afghanistan in 2006, will discuss his views at the conference in a presentation entitled ‘Leadership and culture, principles and professionalism, simplicity and safety’.
