Magne Ognedal appointed knight of the first order of the Royal Norwegian order of St. Olav

Friday, Jan 18, 2013

His Majesty the King has conferred the honour of Knight of the First Order of the Royal Norwegian Order of St. Olav on Magne Ognedal, director-general of the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway (PSA), for his efforts for Norwegian petroleum activities.

The application, and the many supportive declarations, emphasise Magne Ognedal’s untiring work towards making Norwegian petroleum activities world-leading as regards safety for people, the environment and financial assets.

His unique and unflagging involvement has also led him to become a prominent international authority on safety in the oil and gas industry.

The initiative for awarding St. Olav to Magne Ognedal was taken by the members of Safety Forum, the central tripartite arena for safety in the Norwegian petroleum industry, with experienced representatives from the largest organisations on the employee and employer sides. The Safety Forum is headed by Magne Ognedal and operated by the PSA.

The PSA and all various partners in the industry view the award as a well-deserved and honourable confirmation of Magne Ognedal’s extensive personal and professional efforts to promote safety and the working environment in the petroleum industry – also in a tripartite perspective.

The insignia of the order will be presented to Magne Ognedal by the County Governor of Rogaland, Tora Aasland, in Stavanger on 7 February of this year. The ceremony will take place at Ledaal with Mayor Christine Sagen Helgø hosting the event.
