HSE Forum
People | Innovation | Collaboration | Policy

This global technical forum will deliver essential learning and sharing of international good practice to improve the safety performance of organisations, help foster a healthy and accident-free work culture that reduces risks, and aid organisations to implement a sustainable environmental and public engagement policy as they navigate the transition to a low carbon economy. Bringing together academia, industry and the regulators, the conference will discuss key HSE challenges and opportunities facing the energy industry in the Middle East.

Themes:
Responsible organisations put in place suitable arrangements to manage HSE in their operations. This should be part of the everyday process of running an organisation and an integral part of workplace behaviours and attitudes.

Themes:
The case for sustainable energy generation, distribution and use has never been so compelling. Diversification of supply, policy on cutting carbon emissions, reducing business costs, consumer demand for high environmental standards; these are all driving government, businesses, organisations and householders in the same direction. The availability of innovative, affordable technologies is opening up a myriad of opportunities for action.

Successful outcomes rely on the sharing of ideas, innovation and good practice, so that the energy production, distribution and use community can learn from each other and move forward effectively to meet sustainability challenges.
