Aimed at anyone who is active in process safety and risk management, this leading industry event will present latest developments, best practice guidance and lessons learned in process safety, sharing the knowledge and experience of over 100 experts from around the globe.

As well as a packed programme of technical presentations, there will be a trade exhibition showcasing products and services to manage risk effectively, and optional pre-conference workshops exploring certain core topics in more depth.

Invited keynote speakers from BASF, Unilever, Shell and Marsh Energy will share their views on process safety management, with themes including: how to drive continuous process safety improvement; the importance and practical application of good process safety management in the FMCG sector; why process safety management systems are so important to a wide spectrum of industry and not just the high hazard chemical industries; the fundamentals - or ‘life-saving rules’ - of the process safety world; and insurance risk engineering.

Guest speaker, Formula One analyst, Mark Gallagher, will draw parallels between risk management in the very different worlds of motorsport and the process industries, offering insights into the evolution of risk management and safety culture within Formula One, and discussing how the lessons learned can be transferred to the high hazard industries.    

There will be plenty of opportunity to network with top experts and industry peers throughout the event, including a free welcome drinks reception in the exhibition area, and an informal social event.
