Event Summary: An Operations Management System (OMS) plays a vital role in performing your role as an engineer and/or a geoscientist in the energy sector, whether its in oil and gas production or as a service provider. An OMS is basically a framework of elements such as leadership accountability, risk management, incident management, reliability and integrity, management of change, supply chain management, performance assessment and continuous improvement, and so on. This framework helps the industry enhance measures for process safety and remain in compliance via internal and external audits. Knowledge of an OMS will help candidates self-assess to continue what they are doing well, find out what they need to learn next and apply operational excellence in their respective functions.
