Do you know if you are in control of your business and safety critical operations? Risks can only be managed when completely understood. By means of a barrier based approach, complex risks can be visualized in a way that is understandable – and managed in an effective and efficient manner.

CGE Risk Management Solutions cordially invites you to attend this Barrier Management Aviation Industry Event in Dubai, hosted by Emirates: a perfect way to learn more about barrier based risk management – from a regulator’s perspective, your peers and subject matter experts.

During this complimentary event you will be introduced to barrier based risk management. A number of interesting speakers from Emirates, GCAA, dnata, CHC Helicopter, Dubai Air Wing, Turkish Airlines, Harbottle Hughes and CGE Risk Management Solutions will share their experiences with you during plenary sessions.
