Leading hazmat event returns for 13th year
NCEC’s Hazmat conference is the ultimate forum for hazmat professionals to share experiences and gain knowledge with like-minded specialists working in the chemical incident industries.
Now in its 13th year, the event draws upon the knowledge and experience of a broad range of hazmat professionals and industry leaders, as well as NCEC’s own emergency responders and experts.
Bringing together international speakers from across sectors, delegates will benefit from informative presentations, case studies and practical, hands-on workshops. Below is a sneak peek into what Hazmat 2022 has in store for you:
Case study, and police DIM upscaling programme – Tony Coombes, CSI Operations Manager, Derbyshire Constabulary CBRN Team
Field expedient decontamination – revisiting best practices in disaster response – Jeremy R Urekew, Hazmat Specialist, Ohio Task Force 1
Environmental protection – Andrew Barnes, Incident Management Specialist, Environment Agency
Hazmat scenario, including practical field testing — a workshop by Ed Sullivan, Hazmat Academy Manager at NCEC
Forensic sampling at criminal hazmat incidents — a workshop by Alex Perks, Police Officer at Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Police
Alternatively powered vehicles — a workshop by Peter Gustafson, Hazmat Lead of London Fire Brigade
Explosives — a workshop by Warren Melia, Managing Director of Wildcat IS Ltd
Case study on a large scale HCl incident — a workshop by Essex Fire & Rescue Service, Environment Agency and Ricardo Energy & Environment
The full programme for this event will be announced early in 2022.
Sessions will involve practical elements and group interaction, where relevant, and will also cover a cross-section of subjects as we aim to increase multi-agency representation. Delegates will have the opportunity to tailor their experience by registering for specific workshops once the programme has been finalised.
Why should you attend?
Hazmat professionals need to keep up to date with hazardous materials response, chemical exposure monitoring, emergency planning, developments in legislation, future technologies, and learn lessons from past experiences. The Hazmat 2022 event is the best opportunity to gain a wider understanding of these issues, and more importantly, practical ways to address them.
All the subjects covered are relevant to people involved in chemical incident response and the setting provides a great opportunity to question and discuss content in the forum and informally one-to-one.
Don’t just take our word for it… these are comments from previous delegates:
- “Excellent choice of workshops, good info to guide procurement, policy & training in the future.”
- “An exceptional event for like-minded people sharing experiences and emerging issues.”
- “Best single-point source of information for Hazmat professionals.”
- “Most relevant event in the sector.”
- “Excellent two days…again. Well done.”
