Topic: HSE Culture in High-Risk Industries


Dr. Waddah Ghanem
Hon. Chairman
Energy Institute – Middle East

Hosted By

Workshop Objectives

Based on two international publications, this workshop is about the effective leadership and governance of HSE matters within organizations and how top management can create high reliability organizations in industries which are generally high-risk industries. While they may not be involved in the day-to-day management of a company, board members influence the tone and safety culture of an organization by the strategy and policies they approve, through the questions they ask and by holding management to account for effective implementation. They need to work also with the Executive Leadership Team who in turn works with other asset and functional leaders to drive an effective HSE culture.
The Governance of Health and Safety provides the framework for the board’s commitment to health and safety, the standards to be achieved, and the resources to implement, monitor and report on health and safety matters.

  • A Standard for Governance and Leadership of Health and Safety.
  • Some recent case studies.
  • Effective health and safety governance and leadership.
  • The role of the Board vs the role of the Executive management team.
  • Policy setting— the “Tone from the Top”.
  • Practical implementation of effective Executive Leadership Committee.
  • Stewardship and implementation of the Health and Safety Plan and generally HSE.

Who Should Attend

Industry Leaders and Managers who are responsible for managing departments and companies that work in high-risk type industries. This workshop is suitable for non-HSE leaders as well as HSE senior practitioners and leaders as well.

Focus Topics

The workshop will be an interactive workshop which will include several round-tables and break out discussions. The workshop is based on international publications and some of the standards development work being undertaken by the workshop leader.

Outcome & Benefits

  • Understand better the relationship between Governance and leadership in HSE.
  • Get a full understanding of the alignment matters required between the Executive and Non-Executive layers of top leadership.
  • Managing performance matters and communication of performance and improvements to making organizations more operationally excellent, resilient and highly reliable.
