Over 150 attend Enoc's regional meet on EHS
Dubai, November 7, 2009
Around 150 environment, health and safety (EHS) professionals attended Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) regional conference on EHS at Movenpick Hotel, Dubai.
The Dubai conference, themed ‘Practical Experiences of the EHS Professional,’ featured in-depth discussions by professionals on various aspects of safety and EHS engineering. The conference also highlighted some of the latest projects of Enoc and its affiliates, and their experience in EHS.
The by-invitation only conference saw around 150 safety supervisors and managers, safety practitioners and engineers, EHS professionals, occupational health nurses, industrial hygienists, occupational health specialists and physicians, and health and safety trainers.
Given the focus on professional development, this year Enoc joined hands with the American Society of Safety Engineers – Middle East Chapter (ASSE-MEC) and the UAE Society of Engineers (UAE-SoE) in organising the event.
“The conference explored a subject matter of critical importance to the world today. In addition to occupational health and safety, there are environmental aspects to be integrated in the operational procedures of all organisations. These measures, adopted at a corporate level, are indeed the building blocks of any national-level sustainable development initiative,” said Waddah Ghanem, chief EHSQ compliance officer, Enoc.
Among key discussions at the conference were research papers on the excellent track record of the UAE in engineering, process safety management, and environmental pollution, among others.-TradeArabia News Service
