  • 1. Communiqué from the recent WASHEQ CONFERENCE 2011
  • 2. WASHEQ 2011 COMUNIQUE The inaugural WASHEQ Conference was held on September 23rd in Accra, Ghana. Attended by nearly 350 participants, the Conference received outstanding reviews from attendees. “For an inaugural program I can boldly say WASHEQ 2011 was a success beyond my expectations. Kudos to you and your entire team. It was an intensely rich and educative program” Daniel Sackeyfio from Havilah oil. Francis Atibila from Shell stated that “First to express my gratitude to you and your team for your efforts in organizing such a landmark conference. I hope and believe that it marked the beginning of many good things to happen to the SHEQ family in WA”. The theme of the conference; “Promoting Health and Safety Culture through Leadership commitment and Workforce Engagement” emphasized the critical fact that issues of health and safety at workplaces are a shared responsibility. The Conference gathered key decision makers within Industry, HSE professionals and academia to identify problems, formulate recommendations and develop and share best practices to ensure the improvement and advancement of safety standards in the workplace through cooperation, knowledge sharing, and relationship building. The conference also hosted notable guest speakers, including Honorable ET Mensah who gave the keynote address. Other speakers included the KOSMOS HSE Manager Scott Bergeron, the Director General of Lagos State Safety Commission, Dominga Odebunmi, the HSE Manager of Chirano Mines Koduah Dapaah and many more. There were thought-provoking presentations on Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) across different sectors of the economy like the oil and gas, manufacturing, mining among others. The Interplast CEO, Arthur Hubert also gave a presentation on Quality Management and the Regional Environmental Manager for CARES, Tayo Adedeji also gave a presentation on Environmental Management. In his key note address, the honorable minister of Employment and Social Welfare E.T Mensah stressed the need for leaders of the organizations to take responsibility in ensuring HSE is given maximum attention so lives are saved. “By the factories, Offices and Shops Act 1970, it is the responsibility of employers to ensure that the workplaces are safe and free of all hazards. The act places specific responsibilities on employers, employees, the self-employed, manufacturers, importers and suppliers”. According to him the main provisions of the Act prescribe general duties, some of which are mandatory and specific. Three breakout sessions took place covering Improving the Safety Culture in companies in West Africa, lead by Kadiri Shamusideen a Principal Consultant, Zub – Chord Technical Ventures, Lagos, Enhancing Capability of SHE Professionals in West Africa, lead by Justice Derefaka, Shell and OHS legislation what can be done in Ghana, lead by Joe Steve Annan of Tullow Oil. The conference was further enhanced by the presence of twelve enthusiastic exhibitors who attended to demonstrate their relevant safety products and services. The popularity and projected growth of the conference is credited to outstanding keynote speakers, informative and useful breakout sessions, professional exhibitors, and the opportunity to learn from – and network with – international and national safety experts in the industry. The next opportunity to attend WASHEQ will be in 2012 August 24. The planning committees are already at work to create an outstanding event. Make plans now to attend!
