|16th International Symposium on Loss Prevention and Safety Promotion in the Process Industries and accompanying exhibition||16/06/2019||
Welcome to the 16th EFCE International Symposium on Loss Prevention and Safety Promotion in the Process Industries! After 45 years, this most prestigious conference in the world in the field of risk and safety related to the chemical and process industries, has returned to the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. Since its first edition in 1974 in Delft, occupational and process safety professionals, researchers, scientists, academics and practitioners have been meeting on a triennial basis at the EFCE Loss Prevention Symposia somewhere in Europe. In this period the Loss Prevention Symposia series has been successful in stimulating and sharing both theoretical and practical knowledge among the Loss Prevention community and considerable progress has been achieved in the field of safety in the chemical and process industries worldwide. Actually, even more industries are involved and have been profiting from advances in safety knowledge. Industries such as oil and gas, energy, pharmaceutical, food, manufacturing companies and the related service industries also use chemicals on a daily basis and are very much involved as well.
