(Image source: BME Global)The Saudi Safety & Security Forum and Exhibition (SSS Arabia) will return to Dhahran International Exhibition Center from 10-12 May, bringing together a broad cross section of the safety, security and fire industries to the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia

The annual event, which was launched in 2011, will combine an international exhibition and strategic workshops to serve the Middle East’s safety and security sectors, with more than 3,000 industry experts expected to be in attendance at the event.

Industry leaders will discuss international standards and best practices on safety and security-related topics during a series of workshops that will run during the three-day event, while visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the latest products and technologies, which will be on display from more than 60 exhibiting organisations.

A new workshop-led format at the event will see selected critical topics, such as industrial security and critical infrastructure, discussed in-depth through a mixture of presentations, case studies and group exercises. According to organisers BME Global, utilising this new format will provide attendees with a much broader learning experience which will, in turn, benefit the industry in a much richer way.

Among the workshops set to take place will be a session presented by Jean Perois CPP, PCI, PSP SVP Industrial Security for ARMADA Technology, entitled ‘Getting the First Step Right: Understanding the Security Risk Assessment API 780’. The workshop will introduce its audience to the API 780 Security Risk Assessment methodology, which has been made mandatory by the High Commission for Industrial Security (HCIS) of the Ministry of Interior of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the evaluation of security risks facing the industrial facilities in the Kingdom.

Mohammed Ameen Hatooq, Senior Technology Application Engineer 3M Personal Safety Division for 3M Saudi Arabia, will also present a session entitled ‘State of the Art in Fire and Explosion Modelling and Fire and Gas Detection’.

Other workshop sessions set to take place during the event will include an ‘Introduction to Health & Safety General Risk Assessment’ and ‘KSA’s Industrial Growth and Emerging Security Imperatives’.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to enter free of charge and can register in advance at
