India is going through a process of rapid urbanization. It has been a long felt need to inculcate a culture of safety and psych to work towards reducing the risk. Several types of manufacturing, storage and control processes are used in industry in the context of large quantities of the potentially hazardous materials handled on routine basis. The effective measures are required to be developed which ensure adequate controls and safeguards for accidents prevention. Serious consequences upon workers, communities and environment were observed in past. It is therefore, a high priority that hazards are properly identified and assessed for their potential to cause serious consequences. This awareness is effective for reducing the possible unsafe acts and unsafe conditions and in turn lowering the health and safety risk arising out of the hazards in the occupancies. The all formats of risk in the form of fire, explosion and accidents need to be addressed with structured methodologies. Mainstreaming of disaster risk reduction activities in to the development process is imperative in our present context of risk.
We at the Department of Fire Technology & Safety Engineering, IPS Academy-Institute of Engineering & Science Indore are proud to announce International Conference & Expo on “Humanitarian Engineering Practices in Fire, Industrial Safety & Disaster Management (HEFSD 2024)” aimed to create awareness on thrust areas of industrial emergencies and impart effective learning which develops the technical competence and national capacity building in effective management of accidents.
The conference will provide an international forum for Scientists, Researchers, Industries Safety Experts, Academicians, Engineers, Students, and Technologists to present their work/experience and discuss the most recent trends, advancement and practical challenges encountered in lieu of issues related to the topics of the conference.
