Risk-based decision making.

ISTR is delighted to inform members and friends of our AGM and Summer Symposium which will be held in the Playfair Library the historic birthplace of the University of Edinburgh. This will be the perfect opportunity to catch up with old friends, make new ones and hear some outstanding speakers discuss a range of issues facing safety professionals and participate in practical workshops.

The Symposium will be on Tuesday 26 June where we will focus on the theme Risk-based decision making.

The previous afternoon (25 June) there will be an afternoon visit to local place of interest followed by our AGM. In the evening the Symposium Dinner will be held in the magnificent Playfair Library Hall which features William Playfair's signature neoclassical barrel-vaulted ceiling.


This will be online from this page in due course. Watch this space!
