Looking forward to the event, Nicholas Hough, Technical Adviser – HSSE explains:
Our focus on Safety and Environmental Sustainability has resulted in forum discussions devoted to ‘The problem of plastic’; ‘Reducing our Carbon footprint’; ‘Safety’ – new approaches and new thinking on managing safety. This event will include the presentation of our annual IMCA Safety and Environmental Sustainability Awards, by Andy Seymour, Global Director Operational Excellence, Fugro, in his role as an IMCA Board Member.
“The forum will provide a view of current industry trends, showcase recent initiatives and examine how we can all have a positive impact on environmental sustainability whatever our role or organisation.
“Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in Q&A sessions and workshops and, importantly, help shape a sustainable way forward for the programme for IMCA’s HSSE Core Committee and Environmental Sustainability Committee.”
In addition to the lunches on both days, there will be a drinks reception at the end of Day One and coffee breaks providing ample networking opportunities.
Those eager to attend this free event are asked to register their interest at [email protected] as soon as possible.
