Striving for Excellence Conference


‘Striving for excellence’ conference, organised by the British Safety Council, will take place on the 9th of April at the InterContinental Regency Hotel in Manama, Bahrain, and it will provide guests with a platform to share expertise, best practice and business experience of managing health and safety to the highest international standards.

“Our annual conference in Bahrain is an important international platform for addressing the most pertinent health and safety issues and sharing best practice with our members and partners in the region. The vision of the British Safety Council is that ‘no-one should be injured or made ill at work’. Sharing expertise and ensuring close cooperation between leading organisations will help to make this aspiration a reality,” said Mike Robinson, chief executive of the British Safety Council.

At the event there will be expert speakers, thought leadership sessions and case studies, such as that of Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO) presented by Hafedh Al-Qassab, General Manager Refining at the Bahrain Petroleum. They are designed to help organisations prepare for the future health and safety challenges.

“BAPCO has been in the oil and gas business for some 80 years and has witnessed fundamental changes in personal and process safety. Our personal safety journey is the result of continual improvement of our health and safety management systems over many decades. It resulted in the current excellent personal safety records reflected by a number of international safety awards. Our presentation will focus on our safety journey, the tools we used, the benefits we realised and our future plans,” commented Hafedh Al-Qassab.

The British Safety Council has been campaigning, advising and educating workers and employers worldwide on how to make workplaces safe for everyone for 60 years. It has also shared best practice in work-related health, wellbeing and managing environmental risks. The British Safety Council has strong links with the Middle Eastern region and works in partnership with many leading businesses in Bahrain, such as Aluminium Bahrain (ALBA), Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO), Bahrain National Gas Company and Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company (GPIC).
