Autumn Symposium 'Engineering for Safety'

28 September 2021 10:12 | Anonymous member

ISTR Autumn Symposium, 16-19 November 2021

Engineering for Safety

Following last autumn's successful online event we have appointed Open Audience to deliver this year's Autumn Symposia 'Engineering for Safety'. More details and booking arrangements.

Engineering for Safety is wide-ranging topic and our programme reflects this. Our keynote presentation discusses the past, present and future containment of biological agents. While other speakers cover the challenges of ensuring the safe operation of aging or historical equipment, right through to the challenges of responding to the current Covid pandemic, including an insight into the HSE's role in this.  

The rise of task automation presents safety challenges as does monitoring and controlling airborne contaminants in a large teaching suite. Also we will hear about examples of collaborative working with non-safety professionals across an organisation in order to maintain a safe working environment. Whatever your discipline there will be opportunities to expand your knowledge and apply this to your own work situation.  

In addition, the ISTR Annual General Meeting will take place on Tuesday 16 November 5.30-6.30pm and members are encouraged to attend.Details will follow in due course.
