Hazards 27
IChemE's leading process safety conference

Hazards 27

Europe's leading process safety conference

Risk will never be eliminated, but it can be better managed and reduced.

Our Hazards conference series brings the process safety community together to share best practice, latest developments and lessons learned.

First staged in 1960, Hazards is now widely recognised as Europe’s leading process safety event. The Hazards brand is growing internationally too, with sister conferences now held regularly in Australasia and Asia.

Aimed at anyone who is active in process safety and risk management, Hazards provides essential technical insight into how to improve process safety performance, and reduce the risk of  hazardous events, as well as excellent networking opportunities.

Hazards is held annually in the UK and next takes place on 10–12 May 2017 at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Birmingham.
