Health and safety practices in the Middle East are changing
Gone are the days of simply ensuring lower accident rates or developing safety training programmes. Modern organisations are seeing the safety function as a business partner and an integral part of business success. Safety or SHE, HSE, HSSE, QHESH (or any other departmental title you use) may need to redefine its role and accommodate more ‘business’ sensitive approaches to fully participate in the decision making process of the business.
Thinking of HSE as part of an integrated risk management strategy with a commercial angle inevitably moves discussions about the safety function into the Boardroom.
How prepared are you to do exactly that?
Moving Safety Into The Boardroom Workshop (27-28 March 2016, Dubai) will examine the foundations and principles on which modern safety interventions are based, including the recently ‘in vogue’ behavioural based safety programs which are now being placed under ever increasing scrutiny in terms of value and sustainability.
The sessions will also challenge the traditional function of the safety professional in today’s modern and dynamic business world and question whether it is compatible to the needs of the modern corporate business.
By attending this break-through workshop, you will be able to:
• Create an alternative ‘corporate’ approach to health and safety risk management
• Assess the process of planning, organising, leading, and controlling the activities in order to minimise and maximise the effects of safety risk on an organisation's capital and earnings
• Understand the concepts and principals of integrated risk management strategies
• Appreciate the changing scenes within the boardroom regarding traditional health and safety risk
• Redirect the ‘safety’ effort in order to support and achieve sustainable performance in risk management and achieve realistic corporate objectives
• Effectively integrate operational and strategic risk, appreciating fully the prevailing risk appetite of a corporate organisation and potential risk exposures
The course is aimed at senior directors, corporate risk managers, health and safety practitioners, corporate finance, insurance, compliance officers, internal auditors and human resources managers who would like to understand, analyse and explore potentially radical or controversial alternative approaches to health and safety risk management and the function of ‘safety’.
This workshop is relevant to all sectors but particularly government, construction, facilities management, oil and gas, process industries, manufacturing, hospitality, healthcare, maritime, dock and harbours.
