Human capital is as important to sustainable commercial success as the traditional resources of raw materials, machinery, energy, land ownership and capital. Today, no company can succeed for long without a healthy and motivated workforce. Maintaining safe and healthy workplaces is therefore as much in a company's self-interest as stewardship of natural resources or increasing energy efficiency. The health and safety of workers must be of paramount importance for any business. Efficient H&S management is not only crucial from a moral point of view but also from a financial perspective and meeting applicable legislative requirements. According to ILO statistics there are 2.3 million work related deaths each year worldwide and 350 000 fatal accidents. The economic costs of accidents and ill health at work amounts to 4% of the world’s GDP. During these three days, HSE experts from leading Construction, Logistics, Petrochemicals & Chemicals, Oil & Gas, Power, Water, Mining, Manufacturing, and Transportation companies will share their insights and experiences. Be part of interactive roundtable and panel discussions and examine best HSE strategies.
