5th Safety Control Systems Conference – LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER!



This conference will focus on the technology and application of safety-related control and instrumentation systems in the chemicals, energy, mining and manufacturing industries. It will give you the tools to help reduce the risk of cyber security threats on your industrial control systems, and examine the complex and challenging issues of using control systems technology to maintain and improve the safety of people and plant, while ensuring profitability.

A functional safety system protects life and business assets. It must be accurately specified and designed for the task. Likewise, safety system practitioners must be aware of the best codes of practice, the best equipment to use, and what pitfalls to avoid. The conference will provide practical applications by specialists experienced in safety life cycle activities such as hazard and risk assessment, and the determination of safety integrity levels (SILs). Topics will be relevant to a wide range of industry sectors including machinery and automation plants, chemical processes, energy and power, pulp and paper and petrochemicals.
