The 2018 Outstanding Young Professional Award was presented to BP’s Marcin Nazaruk at this year’s SPE International Conference on Health, Safety, Security, Environment, and Social Responsibility in Abu Dhabi. As BP’s upstream human performance lead adviser, Nazaruk supports a range of global initiatives that aim to integrate human factors with risk-management processes.
“I’m truly honored to receive the award, which is testimony to the years of support I’ve received from colleagues, managers, and mentors throughout my career, as well as being a great motivator to take and apply my learnings further,” Nazaruk said.
The International Association of Oil and Gas Producers (IOGP) presented the award at the conference. The award was created by IOGP in association with the Society of Petroleum Engineers to inspire the next generation of leaders in the upstream industry. It highlights the achievements of a professional with fewer than 10 years of exploration and production experience who has demonstrated outstanding talent, dedication, and leadership in the discipline of health, safety, security, environment, and social responsibility.
“Safety is fundamental,” Nazaruk said, “and it’s important to work with all parties including leaders, employees, and contractor partners in bringing a ‘human performance’ approach to life. By recognizing that people make mistakes and looking at the underlying conditions and systems that contribute to causing them, we can better design plants and processes to help mitigate and manage these risks.”
“Marcin’s work is exactly the type of innovative approach and out-of-the-box thinking that our sector needs to take risk management to the next level. It’s a well-deserved win,” said IOGP Executive Director Gordon Ballard.
