Dialight - How LED lighting can enable hazardous areas to meet safety regulations, save money and be seen to be green

Industry worldwide faces ever-escalating requirements to become more environmentally responsible. Whether in response to mandatory or voluntary energy initiatives, there are multiple ways in which LED lighting can help organisations to reduce their carbon footprint, increase their energy efficiency and become altogether 'greener'.

This workshop will explore:

The regulated targets being set for sustainability
· How much energy and CO2 can be saved by switching to LED lighting
· Case studies that demonstrate the CO2 and energy savings to be made
· How LEDs minimise environmental hazards like dangerous waste and light pollution

Learning objectives:

· How to improve lighting quality with a more sustainable solution by changing the lighting paradigm to 'measure what matters'
· Demonstrating the lighting problems that can be overcome by using LEDs in industrial locations
· Illustrating the pitfalls of current lighting profiles
· Showing attendees the value of focusing on how best to illuminate an area for a given period – in other words to measure what matters - rather than on one-for-one comparisons of units.

Intertek - IEC 60079-33 Ed. 1.0: Explosive atmospheres-Part 33: Equipment protection by special protection 's'

With the new IECEx 60079-33 Ed. 1.0 standard expected to be published in 2010, Andy Austin from Intertek will be sharing his thoughts on the practical implementation and implications of this latest Standard and providing an exploration of the 's' concept and wider essential health and safety requirements

Phoenix Contact - Using emerging and existing wireless technologies for process applications ranging from instruments to networks

There are many different types of wireless technology and products available in the market today; and no technology is suitable for every application.  This workshop will examine the special considerations when using wireless, and how each wireless technology differs in transmission method, operating frequency, network architecture, and bandwidth in order to better choose a specific technology for an application.  The various wireless standards, both existing and emerging, will be discussed in an objective format.

STL -The darker issues of hazardous area and industrial lighting

This workshop will cover the following main topics:

  • LED, Induction, Fluorescent, others. What types for what applications?
  • Why are we being led towards LED’s?
  • Long-life. What does that really mean? The system concept
  • Maintenance-free, sealed for life and the inspection issues
  • Emergency lights. How reliable in an emergency?

The workshop is interactive and delegates are encouraged to participate and "bring their questions with them" on any lighting topic.

STL International offers on of the widest available range of hazardous area and industrial low maintenance and maintenance-free light fittings and luminaires.

St John Ambulance - Changes to first aid at work regulations

First aid cover in the workplace is a legal requirement. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) introduced a new set of regulations which came into force on 1 October 2009. What hasn't changed is the legal requirement to provide adequate first aid cover. During 2009 Fred Owen, the Regional Training Manager for the North East gave this presentation at the H&S Expo at the NEC to an audience of H&S professionals and to safety representatives of all the High Street banks at the Bank of England.

Fred will give you information with regards to current legislation and what you need to do with regards to a first aid needs review, as well as an interactive question time.
