Discussing HSE challenges and opportunities within the energy sector in the region, the conference aims to deliver essential learning and sharing of international best practice to help improve the safety performance of organisations, foster a healthy and accident-free work culture, and ensure a sustainable environment.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC, said: “As an integrated oil & gas company, health, safety and environment is one of the key pillars of our organisational culture. We are honoured to host the second HSE Forum with Energy Institute as we believe this event is fundamental in creating a safe and reliable future for the energy industry.”
Louise Kingham OBE FEI, EI Chief Executive added: ‘The Middle East is a vital global energy hub and the EI is committed to strengthening its support of knowledge, skills and good practice in the region. I’m delighted that the HSE Forum 2018 will have a clear focus on energy efficiency, which is a vital and often neglected aspect of the energy system. The forum will provide an opportunity for industry, academia and policy makers to share knowledge on delivering sustainable and safe working practices. With this in mind, it’s heartening to see Dubai taking such a clear and decisive approach to incorporating energy efficiency into their strategic vision.”Email This Post
