“HSSE Excellence – Plan, Practice, Assess, Act and Innovate”
AMCHAM T&T is a strong advocate of the promotion of HSSE best practice and has played a critical role in the development of both the environmental and occupational safety and health movements in Trinidad & Tobago. One example of this is the AMCHAM T&T HSSE Committees which seek to foster consciousness and awareness in the areas of Occupational Health & Safety, Security, the Environment and related subject areas throughout the private sector, our membership and the national community. We firmly believe that HSSE best practice makes good business sense and that organizations should be encouraged to implement same; as the benefits accrue not only to the organization but to the wider society.
AMCHAM T&T’s HSSE Conference & Exhibition is the chamber’s primary initiative for the promotion of HSSE best practice and new concepts, sharing of information and the provision of a neutral forum for discussion of controversial issues with HSSE implications. AMCHAM T&T has always maintained that Excellence in HSSE is synonymous with good business practice. Many organizations still have a reactive, fragmented approach towards environmental, social (health and safety) and regulatory issues; opting in many cases to merely respond to an emergency or comply with specific regulations as they arise.
