HABC MEA has been helping managers involved in construction, health and safety and project management in the Middle East understand more about the importance of identifying hazards in controlling workplace accidents.
Paul Coates, HABC MEA Operations Manager, conducted a 3-hour session on the subject to over 30 delegates from various companies at the Amari Doha Hotel on 8 December 2013.
The seminar was organised by the Vibrant Consultancy WLL, Doha, Qatar, on behalf of a campaign by Arabtec Construction Company – one of the region’s leading construction firms – to raise awareness of hazard identification.
The delegates were welcomed by Mr P. Shaji, Project HSE Manager (Arabtec), who discussed the campaign and emphasised the need for further seminars to create awareness amongst employees.
Throughout the seminar, contributions were made by a number of leading industry figures from the region, included Mr Fadi Al Bashir, Project Manager (Arabtec), who opened the event, and Mr Benjamin, HSE Manager (Turner International LLC Middle East) and Mr H.V. Nair, Project Manager (Gulf Civil Engineering and Construction Company), who both spoke on the topic.
HABC MEA and Arabtec were both thanked for the seminar by Mr Santosh Kumar Pillai, Director of Vibrant Consultancy. Mr Santosh also thanked Highfield HABC MEA and Paul Coates in particular for their ongoing support for making the industry in the region safer for employees.
And finally there was thanks for Mr Jithin Chakkooth, Operations Manager at Vibrant Consultancy, without whom the event would not have happened.
