The event is part of SHENA's ongoing Outreach Programme which includes open HSE Forums targeting general industry and non industry sectors, awareness campaigns and engaging relevant stakeholders as well as the general public in pursuit of its mission in making Brunei Darussalam a safe place to work and live.
