- PRESS RELEASE
Understanding health and safety culture is an important aspect of an organization's smooth and effective functioning to ensure a risk-free work culture. In recent years, major disastors have bought to light the importance of occupational health and safety that decisively affected the outcome.
The findings and achievements of understanding and managing safety culture at the workplace will be presented by Bob Arnold, Health Safety Director - Europe and Canada & Vice Chair of IOSH from Brookfield Multiplex at the 2nd Middle East OHS Strategy Summit 2013, taking place from 25 - 27 February in Abu Dhabi, UAE.
The dedicated industry forum will put a spotlight on the latest developments on smarter, safer and more focused processes for improved OHS operations, ensuring the effective health and safety management and sustainable environmental practices at the work site.
"Over the last few years responsible companies in the Middle East are realising OHS is an integral part of business performance and if they are not organised for OHS they will not be profitable or sustainable, OHS KPI's should be embedded within a company's institutional fabric at all levels of the organisational hierarchy to have a positive effect of behavioural and cultural change" - Andrew Broderick, Director of EHSS, Sustainability and CSR, ALDAR Properties who was the part of speaker panel at the inaugural event earlier this year.
The complete focus of this conference would be on OHS challenges and issues in the Middle East. The importance of committed leadership in driving a safety culture and the role of government in influencing this are need of the hour issues that this conference will bring to light.
The two-day conference will feature 19 presentations, three panel discussions and enticing hours of networking sessions, before culminating with post conference workshops on the final day. This conference will broadly be attended by the industry leaders and influencers to exchange and impart knowledge on the intellectual discussions of successful OHS strategy implementation.
The event will host companies like Department of Transport Authority Abu Dhabi, Road Transport Authority Dubai, The Petroleum Institute (ADNOC), Brookfield Multiplex, Baker Hughes, Qatar Petroleum - Ras Laffan Region, Health Authority Abu Dhabi - HAAD, ENOC, Saudi Aramco, BP and Ryder Marsh (Safety) Ltd to name a few.
