What do our clients say?

The Subsea 7 OSL course has enabled Subsea 7 to develop high-performing Offshore Supervisors.  OSL  develops the daily behaviour of Offshore Supervisors & Team Leads to get the best out of people and teams they manage on our operational site be it offshore or onshore  – no matter the crew or shift make up of different nationalities and cultures  – and in doing so, contribute to Subsea 7 offshore safety  performance and communication. The tools and techniques are simple, practical and memorable with practice and feedback using familiar supervisor scenarios. OSL has been a great stepping stone in the development of Subsea 7 leading safety program and our Work safe / Home Safety campaign.
