Lately, we have been helping a lot of European construction companies digitise their quality, health, safety and environment systems for high-quality inspections and thorough regulatory compliance.

Through the whole digitalisation process that we went through with our clients, we further updated ourselves with QHSE and occupational safety and health news, such as recent publications, standards, regulations, and good practices. And to pass along this knowledge, we have compiled various HSE events in and around France, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany for individuals and companies looking into reevaluating their QHSE strategies. This calendar is made especially for you so you can plan your QHSE strategy from and around it.

These events are great to be kept updated with the latest trends and changes in Quality and HSE. Being informed is highly important as Europe is slowly adapting technology and implementing various technology solutions in their quality and HSE systems.

The digitalisation of QHSE processes and the increase use of mobile technology in construction processes show a positive disruption that would be interesting to be a part of.

Here is a list of HSE events that covers up to November 2019. For events that we might have missed, kindly send us a message and we will add them as requested.
