The conference was held at the Radisson Blu hotel in Al Hashemi hall from the 26th -28th of November, 2013.  The objective of the conference was to promote health, safety, security, environmental protection and loss prevention in the region. They completed these objectives by providing a forum for practitioners from industry, academia, and government agencies to share their experiences, technological advances and new ideas.

IQ Arabia’s speaker was Chairman, Mr. Raymond Clarke who joined us all the way from the UK to participate in the conference and discuss the importance of health, safety, security and environment in today’s emerging HSSE industry in the region.  As for IQ Arabia’s role, Mr. Raymond Clarke gave a speech during the opening of the conference and presented a technical paper the following day.

During IQ’s Technical paper presentation, many ideas were shared and points discussed.  In brief, an introduction to IQ was made and how most of the qualifications offered by IQ include units related to HSSE that make up our list of qualifications.  The drivers for education were also discussed and how there was an approach to changing culture.

My objective is to make the case for education to agreed international standards in a competitive environment to underpin Health and Safety” - Raymond Clarke.

Throughout the presentation Mr Raymond Clarke also explained how there was a notable decrease in workplace injuries and fatalities since the ‘Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974’ was introduced into the UK.  The education structure in the UK was also explained along with the opportunities and lessons learnt from the health and safety industry.  Finally the presentation was ended by the IQ view.
