Safety and Dredging (on demand)

The webinar features safety experts who provide you insights on how safety risks such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S), unexploded ordnances (UXO) and mooring were handled on the New Suez Canal Project.

SUMMARY

Dredging operations can be risky as it often involves heavy machinery with many hidden and obvious dangers with little room for errors and potentially dire consequences. As such, safety is an extremely important topic in the dredging industry.
The webinar will feature safety experts who will provide you insights on how safety risks such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S), unexploded ordnances (UXO) and mooring were handled on the New Suez Canal Project. This project saw the largest number of vessels ever deployed for dredging operations and yet despite the high number of dredgers, no one was involved in an incident. Besides highlighting the specific safety risks, the experts will also demonstrate how IADC members collaborate to establish continual improvement.
