For over 15 years, Hazardex has been providing key industry information and topical discussion on process safety-related topics. The annual Conference and Exhibition brings together those with hazardous area and wider safety responsibilities to review best practice and the latest research in those areas key to managing process safety effectively.
Hazardex plays a key role in raising awareness about process safety issues, particularly important at a time when the consequences of failure become ever more onerous. A recent example of these consequences can be seen here.
