The seminar programme/titles for the conference comprise:

Still a bit confused about the changes to the gas regulations?
This is aimed at helping engineers who are still a little confused by the changes to the unsafe situations procedure, plus how and when to measure CO2 levels in accordance with UP/19. Representatives from IGEM and the Gas Safe Register will set out clearly exactly what the changes are and how to action them.

Pressure vessels – what they are, when they need examining and what can happen if they go wrong?
This talk will deal with making engineers and managers aware of the potential risks when pressure vessels in appliances such as espresso coffee machines go wrong. Andy Greaves, standards engineer (pressure) for Allianz Engineering, and an expert on this subject, will explain all.

Want to reduce your fleet insurance costs?
Darren Cronin of the Jelf Group has been advising CEDA members for a number of years on insurance matters. He will explain how vehicle fleet insurance premiums are calculated and how these can potentially be reduced.
