About the Forum

The Coronavirus (Covid-19) has created the biggest global crisis in generations, sending shock waves through the energy system, economies and societies around the world. Restrictions in free movement, travel and transport have contributed to an unprecedented drop in energy demand and commodity prices (e.g. for crude oil) have crashed to historic lows, erasing almost a decade of growth. These two daunting challenges threaten to push our global economy into a historic recession.

HSE within the energy sector has also been severely affected by this crisis, as physical distancing, self-isolation and operating in uncertainty becomes the "new normal", with many organisations transitioning their workforce to operate remotely or at a distance, and delaying capital projects. However, some organisations are embracing opportunities, such as those brought about by digital transformation and decarbonisation, and there are HSE issues associated with their adoption.

The crisis will pass, but we are likely to emerge changed as a global society and as an energy industry. Companies will need resilience to emerge from this downturn and innovative thinking, new efficiency in operations, and continued robust HSE practices will be essential if they are to rebuild and recover.

To help us manage through and recover from the challenges that the pandemic presents we will, across the two days of this conference, focus on bringing insight, good practice and learning and solutions to ensure the energy industry can continue to deliver energy responsibly, safely and securely; prevent harm to employees, contractors and society and develop a more sustainable energy system. As such, this conference will be delivered in the context of the following themes:

Respond: To help companies address the challenges, identify solutions and prioritise actions

Rebuild: To support companies with plans and systems in order to take immediate action and share learning and guidance

Recover: To embrace innovation; apply tools and techniques; and align government legislation and policy

In the face of seismic global health and economic shocks, health, safety and environmental protection remain bedrocks of a resilient energy industry. This conference will bring together academia, industry and the regulators to discuss HSE in the Middle East in the context of the major changes we're all living through. It will cover:

  • HSE Management: organisational arrangements to identify hazards, reduce risks and enhance business performance
  • Health and wellbeing: managing health hazards and reducing negative health impact on workers
  • Process Safety: managing hazards that have the potential to cause major accidents
  • Human Factors to deliver human performance: designing process and equipment to suit a wide range of user abilities and limitations, build resilience and avoid human failure
  • Environmental protection: processes for mitigating environmental impacts
  • Discover the regional and international opportunities and challenges from industry leaders
  • Make valuable contacts and share industry knowledge
  • Be part of the ‘international good practice' dialogue
  • Members: £500 + VAT
  • Company members: £600 + VAT
  • Non-members: £700 + VAT
