Zenab Husain, Senior Conference Producer with Fleming Gulf and responsible for this event quotes â€œOperating under competitive pressures of globalization, workers in industrialized economies are highly susceptible to life threatening risks and dangers. As many as 5,000 people die every day as a result of work-related accidents or illnesses, as per International Labour Organisation. Hence, an industry is only as strong as its ability to not only survive and withstand these potential hazards and accidents but also avoid future occurrence of the same.â€
Therefore, in the new era of corporate governance, everyone from the plant level superintendent to the chairman or president of major Oil & Gas operating firms should be questioning the reliability and effectiveness of their HSE framework! Surpassing inherent challenges, enhancing safety infrastructure and successfully interweaving core HSE values within the organizational structure has indeed become the growing need of today.
Being on the forefront of the every evolving industry that is highly prone to risk and uncertainties, Fleming Gulf is proud to announce its 4th Annual HSE Forum in Oil & Gas, scheduled for 10th â€“ 12th November â€™08 in Doha, Qatar.
Conference has proved itself to be the focal point for discussion on the best practices, innovative solutions and creative ideas on successful HSE compliance. It has indeed emerged as a premium event for HSE practitioners in the region Enriched speaker panel (leading industrial figures from renowned organisations like Saudi Aramco, Qatar Petroleum, Health & Safety Executive, Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, BAPCO, Technip etc) and due support of IOSH and our premium sponsors (Intergrum, SGS, 3MGulf) contributed immensely to the overwhelming success of the forum last year. The event was well attended by more than 120 regional and international delegates. Key highlights of the conference were case studies and presentations on the Buncefield Accident, state of labor camps in QatarGas, Coral transplantation, Client - Contractor Compliance: Formulating combined HSE Strategies etc. The event was followed by 2 half day interactive certified workshops on Risk Assessment & Excellence in Accident Investigation.
Recognizing the true importance of effective implementation and adherence to proficient HSE values, this year the event will emphasise on key HSE principles : Commit, Communicate and Deliver for accomplishing the objectives of sustainable development and business continuity through a series of thought provoking debates, unflinching presentations, enlightening case studies and focused workshops
The conference will bring together some of the regionâ€™s leading industrial figures, each a stakeholder in HSE, to share their insights and valuable experiences in devising world class policies for attaining excellence in HSE performance
Therefore, I encourage all HSE practitioners to attend this conference for pursuing the shared vision of leadership and incident-free work place, thereby supporting HSE improvements industry wide.
