TAAP OGV community OGV community Risk Management OGV

OGV Energy welcomes you to our OGV Community event for December where we will be exploring the subject of Risk Management and Wellbeing on December 17th at 2pm.

The Energy sector, like many others, has faced one of its most challenging years to date in terms of executing operations, future planning and the consequent mental health impact of an inhibitive pandemic on its workforce.

We will be taking a look at how the energy supply chain has addressed these challenges and what more needs to be done in order to ensure safe working practices and mental health provision for the workforce of the sector. Chair
