4th Annual Health, Safety & Environment Excellence 2017


If you think compliance to HSE regulations is expensive, try having a serious incident. Not only could people die; your costs will spiral higher and your corporate brand and reputation will most likely suffer. Because of these hard lessons, many firms are now putting into place more rigorous HSE systems than are required by local regulation. Severe incidents in the oil and gas industry have cost their owners dearly and have disrupted the overall expansion strategy of the
company. Examples include Occidental’s North Sea strategy after Piper Alpha and BP’s global footprint and expansion after Deepwater Horizon. Additional industrial case studies will be used to emphasize key concepts.

To prevent a similar incident occurring in your firm, many companies are now actively learning about how to prevent serious incidents through a proactive HSE strategy. In this 3 day course, we will investigate the key elements and details of an HSE system, and look at key areas where firms can inadvertently fail. The course will address the individual elements of Health, Safety, Environment, and Security, and will address how to achieve the appropriate culture to support positive action and performance. The course will address technical issues, systems issues, and human capital issues, and will discuss how to effectively integrate these efforts towards achieving outstanding results.
