Hazardex 2017 Conference – Call for papers, deadline now

04 October 2016

The 2017 Hazardex International Conference and Exhibition will be taking place once again at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Runcorn, Cheshire, UK on March 2nd & 3rd 2017. After the success of the 2016 event, we plan to grow delegate numbers with an even stronger conference programme next year and are now looking for submissions for next year's event.

Widely recognised as the most important global conference specific to hazardous area operations across all major industries, Hazardex brings together the international process safety community on an annual basis to review best practice and the latest research in those areas key to managing process safety effectively.

The main areas of interest at next year’s conference will be systems, procedures, competence, human factors, legislation, non electrical, risk and asset management, but anyone with an original take on any aspect of hazardous area operations or process safety is encouraged to get in touch.

The conference committee has also issued a special request for end user/operator experiences, particularly relating to regulation, cultural change, ageing plant and decommissioning.

Please submit abstracts with a speaker biog for first round consideration by email to with ‘Hazardex 2017 conference submission’ in the subject line.

The committee will then create a shortlist from which the programme will be put together, with full papers to be supplied later.

There is no fee to enter, but all submissions must be non-commercial and should offer the assembled audience some unique content to aide them in their everyday operations on site.

Any questions can be addressed to Event Director Russell Goater on or phone +44 (0) 1732 359990.
