2019 European HSE Management Forum

5 - 6 September 2019

ERM is a Premium Sponsor of the European HSE Management Forum, to be held in Prague this September.

The event attracts HSE leaders from across Europe to share knowledge and experience on safety culture and leadership, HSE operational excellence and overcoming the barriers related to both topics. This year's forum will focus on case studies, real-life examples and success stories. Additionally, the organizers created a “women in health and safety session in order to highlight their contribution to this male-driven industry and the importance of female leaders”. The forum offers a brilliant networking platform for members of the industrial health and safety community.
