Major Hazards Symposium 2017

Major Hazards Symposium 2017

Major Hazards Symposium 2017

Join us at this inaugural symposium, which calls for all process industry professionals to embrace Singapore’s new Safety Case Regime. Under the Regime introduced by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), all Major Hazards Installation (MHI) companies will be required to submit a safety case to demonstrate how risks from major accident hazards can be reduced to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP).

At this one-day symposium, you will hear industry speakers share their insights and expertise on the implementation of the Safety Case framework. You will also explore different perspectives of process safety in various facets such as business continuity, leadership and education.

This symposium is jointly organised by SITLEARN Professional Development, Society of Loss Prevention (SLP), NTUC’s Employment and Employability Institute (e2i) and the Labour Movement’s Oil, Petrochemical, Energy and Chemicals (OPEC) cluster.
