Abu Dhabi–UAE: Abu Dhabi Ports, the operator of commercial and community ports in the emirate of Abu Dhabi launched yesterday its 3rd Annual Health, Safety, and Environment (HSE) Week 2019, at the Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal,

HSE Week 2019 will run from 22 to 24 October with the participation of government organisations, such as Abu Dhabi Police, Department of Health, Abu Dhabi Municipality, and ADNOC, as well as academic institutions that include the Abu Dhabi Vocational Education and Training Institute (ADVETI), Abu Dhabi University, UAE University, Zayed University, and the Higher Colleges of Technology. It is being organised in close collaboration with the National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC), Capital Health Screening Centre, Saif Bin Darwish, and Grand Mills.

Now in its third iteration, the annual Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) event is dedicated to raising awareness and knowledge sharing on the best practices related to HSE, as well as encouraging increased collaboration within the field through public-private partnerships.

Under the theme of ‘Risk Management and Business Continuity’, Abu Dhabi Ports and guest presenters will highlight the various ways organisations can protect their infrastructure and personnel while mitigating the negative impact of disruption.

Capt. Maktoum Al Houqani, Chief Corporate Authority Officer, Abu Dhabi Ports, said: “Building on the success of last year’s edition of HSE Week, we continue to work closely with our partners to advance the field of health, safety, and environment. To ensure that a strong HSE foundation forms here in the UAE, it is important to host events like HSE Week, which serve as a platform to exchange ideas and best practices and to raise awareness of the importance of this issue within the local community and the next generation of Emirati nationals.”

Drawing a large number of participants and stakeholders from the UAE’s emergency services, academic institutions, healthcare providers, and HSE suppliers, the three-day event will feature a wide range of lectures, workshops, and safety equipment demonstrations.

Abu Dhabi Ports will also host students from a number of UAE universities, colleges, and select high schools throughout HSE Week 2019.
