The protracted economic downturn and a ‘lower for longer’ oil price environment means business sustainability is seriously under threat and requires transformation.

Operating as they always have is no longer is an option for businesses looking to the future. Organisations which do not embrace disruptive and diverse technologies will fall behind their peers.  Early adopters and developers – the agile businesses of the future are more likely to survive.

This, added to the reduction in capital available for new assets and the pressure to increase operational life expectancies of existing plant, creates a perfect storm.

Organisations require a ‘phase change’ in culture both at an organisation level but more importantly at a personnel level.  People will be part of the future business but they will also be impacted by these changes.  Without full cooperation of the workforce all working toward a common goal the organisation is vulnerable to blockers (mainly in middle management positions) and you’re heading the way of the dinosaurs.


This conference addresses head-on some of these important topics and will strive to address these under the following headings: –

  • Prevention – Out Engineer – Inherently Safe Design
  • Protection – Fixed protection with minimum human intervention
  • Preparedness – Fire Hazard Analysis, Credible Scenario development;  Risk Assessments & Reduction Options
  • Response – Implementation, Test & Exercise, Maintain & Review.  Training based on credible scenarios identified (not only fire service response, but also Operations/Maintenance response to make plants safe during incidents)
  • Recovery – Predetermine critical components with long lead times to get back to production as soon as possible and reduce losses.
