Safety first for Ruth

Fisher Offshore’s QHSE (quality, health, safety and environment) advisor, Ruth Pirie, has been named Most Promising Individual at the 2014 Offshore Oil and Gas Industry Safety Awards.

Fisher Offshore provides the offshore, subsea and marine industries with a comprehensive range of equipment for sale and hire. Ruth, 30, who works at the company’s Aberdeen office, beat off stiff competition from the two other finalists in her category to win the Petrofac-sponsored award for the health and safety environment training pack she and her team created for Fisher Offshore.

The judges at the event, which was held at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre in April, praised Ruth for actively embracing a health and safety culture, and for ensuring Fisher Offshore used the training pack to expand its safety culture, making safety a priority every day.

Thrilled with her award, Ruth said:

“I’m so proud to work for a company that puts health and safety, and operational efficiency at the forefront of everything it does. With its support, I’ve been able to build on processes that were already in place.”
