During the pandemic, we have all been affected by lockdowns, decline in industry and manufacturing sectors. Distress is common among business owners, shareholders, employees and even governments.Some say that change is needed. We say it is definitely needed. Especially within the world of HSSE
The Government in Egypt is building several cities, including a new capital, one million low-cost homes, plus an infrastructure of highways and bridges. This bustling regeneration has helped Egypt remain in growth despite the economic shock of the Coronavirus pandemic. While the country is focusing on up scaling the industrial sector as the main driver of national sustainable development.
The operational health and safety structure is not properly functioning. Reviewing the current situation of OHS in Egypt shows complex issues pertaining to the implementation of OHS laws and regulations whether by the government or the private sector. Occupational medicine continues to be one of medicine’s smallest specialties facing challenges in terms of demand for consultants and trainees in occupational health and safety practice.
Enhancing the communication and participation of workers along with the identification of gaps would lead to continuous improvement. Putting an emphasis on workers’ active participation in OHS matters can have positive benefits on the organization’s reputation as a safe place to work leading to staff retention, motivation and greater productivity. Implementation leads to achieving an international standard benchmark, which may have a positive influence on the workforce. The key element here is the perception toward occupational safety.
Given the above scenario, the HSSE Summit Egypt 2022 scheduled on 9 - 11 May 2022 with a combination of high-level keynote speeches, fireside chats, panel discussions and live Q&A sessions will provide valuable insights into effective health and safety programmes. While highlighting best practices, process improvements, technology advances and innovative applications to enhance occupational health and safety performance, the forum will endeavour to align world class principles with local industry requirements presented by visionary international and local speakers in an effort to bring Health, Safety, Environment issues to the fore combined with an audience of leading solution providers to ensure workplace safety and also analyse the role of modern technology in improving overall HSE performance.
The two day summit will also provide a platform for learning the latest industry trends and developments and most importantly, meeting face-to-face with key stakeholders and decision makers within the health, safety and environmental fields that together help drive businesses forward.
