Conference content

The 2017 APPEA HSE Conference will examine issues such as:

  • Human factors and behaviour management: how guidance, assessment and learning tools can make operations safer, more efficient and effective.
  • Technology and innovation: the role of advanced engineering, robotics, remote-sensing, cognitive science and big data analyses and the use of new communications platforms and media.
  • Collaboration with other industries: how the oil and gas sector can work with aerospace, the nuclear and solar energy industries, and the military – as well as with stakeholders, regulators and governments.
  • Adoption and adaption of the latest science, research and development and thought-leadership: how our industry can use advances in engineering, computing, physical science, environmental science, and social and behavioural sciences.
  • How industry can enhance communication and collaboration with stakeholders and communities to build trust and lasting relationships.
