To the desert go prophets and hermits; through deserts go pilgrims and exiles. Here the leaders of the great religions have sought the therapeutic and spiritual values of retreat, not to escape but to find reality.1
And it is here in the desert, too, that ADIPEC, the world’s largest conference for oil and gas professionals, finds its home. A warm welcome one and all to this, the ADIPEC show guide edition of Health and Safety Middle East magazine.
With around 900 speakers scheduled for more than 200 sessions, the conference will bring together the industry’s most respected experts, global leaders and top decision makers, with more than 10,000 delegates expected to attend over the course of the event’s four days.
As the region’s only audited occupational safety publication, HSME magazine will of course be among the exhibitors. The magazine’s own Thomas Montellier will be in attendance and is looking forward to meeting existing contacts as well as forging new relationships at the show, to ever expand the magazine’s prowess in the region.
In addition to a useful show guide to help you navigate the halls, this edition beholds expert articles on the topics of offshore safety, working at height, gas detection, safety footwear, protective workwear, and arm and hand protection. The ADIPEC edition wouldn’t be complete without a detailed look at offshore safety. This comes in the form of an article from Sparrows Group’s Peter Rhodes and Susan Fraser, who focus on the safe use of cranes and rope access on offshore platforms.
If you are attending ADIPEC, do come to visit us at CN140. We look forward to seeing you there!
Stay safe out there,
Kimberley de Selincourt
