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 world-standard presentations, case studies and practical, hands-on workshops in a friendly and welcoming environment. 

We know many of you will miss attending the event this year and the networking opportunities it provides, we are therefore holding a half day virtual event on the afternoon of 14 October 2020.  This event will provide you with 3 presentation sessions including lessons learnt from the Covid-19 response, followed by virtual networking.

Delegate places will start at £50 and further details will be made available soon.

In the meantime, save the date in your diary.  

Using delegate feedback gathered at previous events, the format for Hazmat 2021 will again include a range of case studies and interactive exercises. We will be encouraging speakers to include practical elements and group interaction where relevant. Sessions will also cover a cross-section of subjects as we look 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 I 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 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 both in the forum and informally one-to-one. Delegates are drawn from fire services, police forces, ambulance services, the MOD, chemical industry and bodies such as the Environment Agency and the Met Office.
