Professor Neil Greenberg will be making a presentation at Piper 25, Oil & Gas UK's major offshore safety conference, which will mark the 25th anniversary of the Piper Alpha disaster.
Professor Greenberg's presentation, entitled 'Safety in mind: dealing with the mental health consequences of traumatic incidents', will be based on his years of experience as one of the UK's leading occupational and academic psychiatrists specialising in operational stress, including post traumatic stress disorder (ptsd).
He said: "I am delighted to be involved in such a valuable conference for the oil and gas industry as Piper 25. Oil and gas organisations, like other industries, must routinely place their people in harm's way or ask them to work in harsh environments and so psychological support is an important consideration for them.
"March on Stress has worked with oil and gas companies, in both 'steady state' and post disaster to help with the early prevention, detection and treatment of operational stress and I will be sharing some of the things we have learned at the conference."
Piper 25 (running 18 – 20 June 2013) will be held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre. The conference is aimed at bringing together people from across the oil and gas industry to reflect on the lessons learnt from the Piper Alpha tragedy, review how far offshore safety has evolved since and to reinforce industry commitment to continuous improvement.
With Piper Alpha as a central theme, the conference will also explore broader safety issues and will feature high profile international speakers from a diverse range of backgrounds. The full conference agenda comprises of both plenary and parallel sessions allowing delegates to tailor their individual programmes to their own areas of expertise and interest.
