PF&C: History of Key Safety Developments Over the Last 250 Years

Today Iain’s talk is going to take us through a short history of key safety developments over the last 250 years. He will consider significant developments in a range of capital intensive high risk industries.  This will focus not just on the engineering solution but also on the human as nearly all accidents involve humans in one way or another.  Today we are faced with a bewildering array of legislation, codes, standards, recommended practice, best practice, governments, professional bodies and associations and it is few industries where we have achieved some form of harmonisation and or standardisation.  He will also explore why we continue to have major accidents and will address the increasing importance of the human element that some industries are only just waking up to.
