Fire Safety and Evacuation Management
As it has been dramatically demonstrated not only in the Macondo accident but in variety of cases,
offshore oil rigs activities entail the hazard of a major accident with potentially severe consequences
to the life and health of workers plus pollution of the environment

10:30 am - 11:00 am REGIONAL TRAILBLAZER PRESENTATION: Case study: Training strategy and professional development of Nigeria’s Fire Services Department

Focus: What methods are used by the companies to train employees in fire safety?
  • Learn how to create safety awareness among all employees
  • What are the newest technologies used by companies to train their employees
  • What content does a fire safety plan needs to include to ensure efficiency
Focus: In this session, you will learn how to effectively plan your emergency evacuation plan in case of a fire in the workplace by the use of new innovative technologies such as drones to increase the incident response by 40%

Key question: How effective can an evacuation plan be for controlling the actual accidents and deaths of workers?
  • Communication is key: Setting up the right channels for effective and clear communication
  • Evaluate current plans, procedures and incident or drill records

INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION GROUPS (IDGS)
INSPIRATION IN ACTION!
Health, Safety and Security Environment 2019 INTERACTIVE DISCUSSION GROUPS (IDGs)
Interactive Discussion Groups (IDGs) are the perfect setting for audiences to come together and discuss their ideas, insights and opinions on specific topics. Each IDG has a leader who will lead the discussion and mention key points that the audience seated can engage in, creating a platform for interactive conversations and learning’s from like minded individuals, from similar work backgrounds of industries, hence leading into a thought provoking discussion. Every participant will have the exciting chance of discussing and sharing their views over two topics for 30 minutes, each within the respective group.

IDG A

12:10 pm - 1:10 pm Step-by-step guidance for creating an efficient business continuity plan
Reserved for sponsor

IDG B

12:10 pm - 1:10 pm Identify hazards, estimate probability and assess potential impact on people, property and business
Reserved for sponsor

IDG C

12:10 pm - 1:10 pm Automation in mining to reduce accidents
Reserved for sponsor

IDG D

12:10 pm - 1:10 pm Fire safety: Current trends & innovations in incident response
Reserved for sponsor

1:10 pm - 2:10 pm Networking lunch break & HSSE award ceremony

The awards are the perfect opportunity for HSSE Leaders to gain recognition in front of the audience for their contributions, achievements and innovations. It will also provide an ideal setting to benchmark against the best-in-industry safety and security methods in the working place in the region.

Decreasing incidents through robust SLAs and automation
Learn how to decrease incidents by 30% through measurable Service-Level-Agreement (SLA)

2:10 pm - 2:40 pm REGIONAL TRAILBLAZER PRESENTATION: Improving SLA by defining, measuring and monitoring of lead-time targeting to ensure continuous business process management of contractors

Focus: The Service Level Agreement (SLA) signed by the Nigerian monitoring organisation and big Oil Producers Trade Section, is aimed at shortening the protracted contracting cycle in the Nigerian oil and gas industry but still faces certain issues regarding the right framework to set up the right standards for HSSE

Key question: What is stopping companies from implementing a standardised business process management concept?
  • How can contract management software’s improve the reaction time?
  • What safety plan needs to be developed to prevent loss of control in risk situations?
Focus: New discussions on how Service Level Agreement can reduce Nigeria’s oil contracting cycle and oil spill response is now one of the major discussions within the energy sector in Africa

Key question: What are the major challenges for companies reducing oil spill response time by 40%?
  • Learn from past incidents which were caused by lack of communication
  • How SLA provide mines sites with greater control of their operations safety
  • Supervising contractors for work-related safety issues

3:40 pm - 4:10 pm REGIONAL TRAILBLAZER: Electronic Contamination: Critical impact of electronic waste – How can we prevent this?

Focus: Many of the electric devices needed in the energy sectors require specific metals and materials which are commonly acquired by mining, an inherently environmentally destructive process. The quality of the equipment is mostly so poor that the companies need to buy often and the extraction of these materials used for equipment’s bring numerous social inequity repercussions as well. Several materials used in electronic products are considered ‘conflict minerals,’ or minerals purchased from conflict-zones. 60% of the world’s cobalt (a conflict mineral used in lithium batteries) is in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Key question: What are the biggest challenges and benefits in implementing new approaches of electronic waste management?
  • Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) on measuring and guiding operations of companies
  • What are the right standards on quality measurements of equipment?

4:10 pm - 4:10 pm Wrap up & closing remarks

The published programme is correct at time of printing. However, given the seniority of our speakers and the nature of their roles, speakers may subsequently substitute or remove themselves from the programme. This is always regrettable, and we will always try to replace the speaker with a speaker with equivalent insight.
