UKPIA launches Associate participation scheme
07 January 2014
From January 2014 the UK Petroleum Industry Association will be introducing three Associate participation schemes to further develop industry cooperation, dialogue and excellence in the areas of Process Safety and Transportation (road and rail). This follows the successful launch of the UKPIA ‘Assuring Safety’ initiative, established to enhance performance in process safety.
The three targeted participation schemes - Process Safety Associate, Transport Associate and Full Associate – will address safety and performance in the downstream oil and gas sectors.
Peter Davidson, UKPIA’s Director Safety, Commercial & Projects, said: “The Associate schemes are all about widening the reach of our important work in process safety and transportation and to ensure that developments and learnings are shared throughout the oil, gas and other high potential hazard industries.”
Chris Hunt, UKPIA’s Director General, added: “Safety is our number one priority and the Associate schemes represent an important vehicle to broaden and foster cross-industry cooperation, learning and development.”

UKPIA represents nine oil refining and marketing companies that operate seven major oil refineries in the UK and source close to 90% of the transport fuels used. UKPIA members also own around 1,900 of the 8,700 filling stations in the UK.
