A new forum for learning about health and safety best practice and networking with likeminded professionals in the Middle East has been launched by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
Taking place in Dubai on Monday, October 21, the first International Health and Safety Excellence Forum is free to attend. It will provide an opportunity to make new contacts in the region, and generate new ideas for overcoming fleet and occupational safety and health challenges.
The event builds on the success of the RoSPA Awards Excellence Forum, which sees high-performing RoSPA Award winners from around the world sharing their advice and guidance, enabling other professionals to improve their own processes and systems and achieve more highly in the awards.
Delegates at the International Forum will hear from RoSPA chief executive Errol Taylor, RoSPA’s occupational safety and health policy adviser and former IOSH President Dr Karen McDonnell, and IOSH Past President Graham Parker. James McMillan, senior associate from Al Tamini, will give a legal perspective on workplace health and safety in the UAE, and RoSPA Award winners Eugene Mayne, group chief executive at Tristar, and Stephen Philip Storey, corporate EHS-head at Larsen & Toubro, will each share how they achieve OSH excellence.
