Workshops and Trainings

The Environment...

Operations in harsh conditions have become a necessity as we are pushed more and more into difficult environments. Oil & gas, mining, utility, construction and shipping companies need to know how their operations can safely progress in these challenging conditions.

The Challenges...

Freezing temperatures, extreme winds, corrosive sea spray and remoteness of operations are some of the challenges that need to be addressed to allow advancement into these locations. Solutions need to be evaluated for the impact on both humans and assets to safely implement change and capitalize on these new opportunities.

Our Goals...

This workshop will identify and prioritize the risks and challenges for operations and exploration in harsh environments, strategize a plan for solutions and disseminate knowledge and advances in harsh environment safety and asset integrity.

Safety & Integrity Workshops...

Safety & Integrity workshops bring together industry experts and researchers to share knowledge and experience, and to identify and establish new collaborative research opportunities relevant to the Arctic and other harsh environments. Workshops focus on two important themes related to the management of natural resource development in harsh and frontier are-as, namely Safety and Asset Integrity.
