The Novel Construction Initiative Fall Session took place in Geneva on Wednesday and Thursday 24 - 25 October 2018. During the meetings people from different companies gathered for a productive session to discuss new construction technologies.
Based on the high number of fatalities resulting from the interactions between machinery and personnel reported in 2016, the HSE Committee decided to focus the 2017 workshop on this subject.
This workshop was intended for all pipeline specialists.
In spite of substantial efforts made by the pipeline industry in health and safety, IPLOCA members still reported 9 fatalities for 2017, most of them considered as being preventable by the IPLOCA HSE & CSR Committee.
