FABIG WEBINAR SERIES

We will be organising lunchtime webinars every two weeks whilst working life remains disrupted by measures to combat the COVID-19 epidemic. Such measures either prohibit or make inadvisable large meetings such as our Technical Meetings.

We are now looking for presentations covering topics relevant to the following themes:

  • Robust Principles for Safe Design against Fires & Explosions based on Experience;
  • Fire and Explosion Hazards from Low Carbon Energy Sources (we are also looking for presentations covering related incidents).

As such, please do not hesitate to contact us at fabig@steel-sci.com if you or one of your colleagues would like to give a relevant presentation.

Take care and stay safe,

The FABIG Team
