In challenging economic times, health and safety is “critical” in ensuring companies stay afloat. It was recently reported that each year some 2.3 Million people worldwide die in occupational accidents or from work related diseases. Providing a safe workplace for employees is the fundamental responsibility of employers.

The talk is generally of the need to change the culture and attitude to health and safety. It is increasingly clear that occupational health and safety concerns must be managed strategically and integrated at the very heart of management systems and decision-making.

Petra Konova, Conference Production Manager at Fleming Gulf says: “Workers must be protected from workplace injuries and illnesses. Experience has shown that successful health and safety management results from establishing processes that address the multiple facets of safety within the context of a management system.”

The responsibility to ensure effective safety measures to protect workers as they go about their everyday duties always remains high. The underlying message to the industry is that accidents cost money - in terms of worker injuries, delays, and of course, reputation.

One of the main issues to be discussed at the forum is the question of leadership. Only committed top management and well informed and trained employees can make OH&S part of everyday business.

Our expert speakers will also share their best practices in managing contractors – looking at selection process, ensuring H&S standards and constant monitoring – to minimize risk of injuries and accidents. Further on you will hear success stories on implementing Behavior Based Safety programs and preventing at-risk behavior.
