For 21 years, Hazardex events have been the ideal platform for sharing key industry information and topical discussion on process safety-related topics. The events bring together those with hazardous area and wider safety responsibilities to review best practice and the latest research in areas key to managing process safety effectively.

The Hazardex Live! 2023 Call for Papers is now open and we are seeking submissions from contributors with experience and knowledge of the process safety and high hazard sectors. Submissions could be in the form of research, industry developments, lessons learnt from near-misses, investigation findings, good practice for industry, or case studies, to name just a few of the formats we are looking for.
