The event is set to feature expert speakers, thought leadership sessions and local case studies, such as these of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and the Ministry of Education of the UAE. These sessions are designed to help organisations prepare for future health and safety challenges in the Middle East region.

The event will focus on the process safety management, fire safety management, the path to HSEQ excellence, ISO certification for health and safety and many other issues.

Speaking to the press, Lawrence Waterman, OBE, chairman of the British Safety Council, said, “Our annual conference in Dubai is becoming an important international forum at which experts from the British Safety Council address the most pertinent health and safety issues and share best practice with our members and partners in the region.”

“The vision of the British Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill at work,” Waterman added.

Commenting on the ‘Striving for Excellence’ event, Hamdan Al Saedi, director of environment, health and safety at Ministry of Education, the UAE, said, “Together with the Memorandum of Understanding, which we have recently signed with the British Safety Council, it will strengthen and develop further our relationship, helping us to achieve excellence in education, training, capacity building and professional development in the fields of health, safety and environmental management.”

During the event, Al Saedi will present the MoE’s initiatives to developing the EHS management system general framework, its implementation and monitoring across the UAE education sector, from early childhood to higher education.
