About this Conference

The International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Security, Environment, and Social Responsibility (HSSE–SR) is the oil & gas industry’s premier global event highlighting best practices and challenges.  In 2016, this biennial conference celebrates 25 years of bringing together experts from all over the world to share new ideas, process improvements, technological advancements, and innovative applications to enhance HSE performance. It also provides a neutral forum where a wide range of perspectives and concerns from a variety of stakeholders can be explored.

The 25th anniversary of the HSSE-SR conference and exhibition will convene in Stavanger, Norway,  a major hub for the oil and gas industry, as well as a city at the forefront of sustainable development. This year’s conference will focus on the need for collaboration and—in light of the current global climate—the imperative to maximise HSE programmes and help achieve the needs of shareholders and stakeholders alike.

The event will attract more than 1200 health, safety, security, environment, and social responsibility leaders and professionals working in the international oil and gas sector. Alongside the conference, an exhibition will showcase the latest technologies, products, and industry services from around the world.
