HSE Excellence Europe Forum

19 - 21 May 2015

Achieving a sustainable step change in safety performance and culture does not require more processes – it requires breathing new life into existing safety programs through equipping leaders and empowering the workforce with the practical skills to effect change.

Every year, the HSE Excellence Europe Forum brings together HSE seniors from major blue chip companies from a wide range of sectors and provides a platform for sharing valuable knowledge and best practices with regards to health, safety and the environment.
