Safety professionals in the Middle East have the opportunity to become part of the global risk community with the launch of a new bursary

The International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM) is partnering with Avetta, the supply chain management platform, for a bursary enabling safety professionals from the Middle East to receive Avetta-sponsored membership of IIRSM. The bursary is entitled ‘Salama’ which represents the word ‘safety’ in Arabic.

Bursary recipients will be selected by a judging panel comprising leading risk management representatives.

Mike Ford, global principal Global – EHS and Sustainability, Avetta, said, “Avetta focuses on enhancing supply chain due diligence and assurance with organisations globally. We partner with clients and suppliers, providing programmes enabling scalable and incremental continual improvement, focusing on worker safety, human rights, and climate risk.

"Through the new Salama Bursary, in partnership with IIRSM, we aim to encourage safety professionals from across the Middle East to become part of the global risk community and to put safety first with Avetta.”

IIRSM Corporate Engagement lead David Hamilton said, "IIRSM is a UK-based professional membership organisation with a global footprint. We help individuals and organisations around the world to feel safe, supported and empowered to identify and manage risks, protecting their environments and lives. We are delighted to be working with our supporting partner Avetta on this exciting bursary.”
