Hazards Process Safety Conference

Hazards Process Safety Conference

Hazards 34

5–7 November 2024, Manchester, UK

Hazards is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading process safety conferences. First staged in 1960, it is an industry-focused event which shares good practice, current thinking and lessons learned in process safety, and offers valuable networking opportunities.

This conference is an excellent opportunity for process safety and loss prevention professionals to connect with their peers, build networks and renew their focus on good process safety practice. You can view photos from Hazards 33 here.


As in previous years, Hazards 34 will share knowledge and practical insight across every major aspect of process safety to help attendees advance their understanding of managing major hazards. Themes running throughout the programme will include:

  • identifying and embedding good practice in major hazards management
  • the role of executive leadership in managing major hazards
  • understanding and managing the challenges and hazard implications of new technologies and applications
  • identifying further opportunities for sharing and learning across industries and sectors.

Our programme will include many practical examples of good practice and lessons learned that others can learn from and apply in their own operations. It will also explore the new major hazard implications of the challenges and opportunities facing the industry eg climate change, decarbonisation and the energy transition, and digitalisation. These are themes that have resonated with previous Hazards attendees and we look forward to continuing and deepening the discussion this year.
