Event Overview

OHS conference stresses on 'prevention' in 2014 edition

Globalisation has brought in new opportunities for industries, accompanied by emerging risks and challenges for workers. In recent reports by ILO, 2.02 million people die each year from work-related diseases and 321,000 people die each year from occupational accidents. Although there has been a decline in traditional risks and steps have been taken to minimize occupational diseases, prevention is the key for achieving goal zero. Themed under "Prevention through Protection", the 3rd Annual Middle East OHS Strategy Summit is scheduled to take place on 7-9 April 2014 in Le Meridien Al-Khobar, Saudi Arabia.

The conference will hear from Abdul Aziz Hussni Zurub from Abu Dhabi Municipality addressing on how to improve conformance check and establish quality HSE managements systems. Occupational accidents and diseases in industries like oil & gas, petrochemical, mining and construction impose enormous costs. It has been a common sight of workers on scaffolding without the appropriate gear and protective clothes. A recent report in Saudi Gazette stated that companies have taken a lax view towards their workers’ safety and they have been forced to work under hazardous conditions which led to a worker falling off the scaffold and suffering permanent disability. Is this is due to bad design or human error and behavior? will be answered by Thomas Kramer from International Society of Fall Protection. In his session on Slips, Trips and Falls, he will talk about the best and safe work practices.

The second edition witnessed senior level industry professionals deliberating on leadership commitment, pressing issues in occupational health and safety, latest technological advancements for protection. The 3rd Annual will focus on key topics like preventing heat-related illness, coping with health challenges for expatriate and learning the art of sickness absence management. The prestigious speaker panelist addressing  OHS issues in the region include Dr. Ahmad Al Shatti, Ministry of Health, Dr. Ali Salem Al Alili, Ministry of Labour, Dr. Jens Thomsen, Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD), Dr. Kashif Afzal, BP and Dr. Syed Z. Hussaini, RasGas. With 8 million migrants', Fleming Gulf takes the event to Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in order to further broaden and explore OHS issues and better serve the OHS community in the region.

National Security & Resilience Conference 2016

Organisational security and resilience in today’s climate of extreme threats

National Security and Resilience combines national security needs with an in-depth understanding of the design and implementation of resilience solutions. London sits at the epicentre of knowledge and resilience and is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, notably in national security and resilience.

The NS&R Conference will take place on 8th-9th November in the heart of London, bringing together a wealth of expertise which will entertain, inform and expand understanding. The leading conference programme is matched by its exceptional cast of speakers from across government and industry for one of the best programmes discussing organisational security and resilience.

The importance of organisational resilience

Global turbulence is expected. Competition, instability and uncertainty are constants in a changing world. Organisations face an unprecedented and growing number of potential disruptions to the status quo and the best laid strategic plans. As history repeats itself, prominent organisations will fail unless modern risk management and governance models incorporate scalable resilience metrics.

To survive and prosper in this new environment of heightened uncertainty and change, organisations must move past traditional risk and governance models and focus instead on resilience. Resilience applies at all levels: national, regional, organisational and corporate.

The NS&R Conference will deliver the latest issues and threats facing government departments/agencies, corporations and businesses, and thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure you and your organisation meet these changing challenges.
