Safety Expert Talks


What is Safety Expert Talks ?  

 

Safety Expert Talks is a series of video based lectures by Experts from the Safety and Risk Engineering domain.  These experts have an industry experience ranging from 15 – 35 years across the world spanning various sectors. Through their lectures they convey critical concepts and the learning from various cases studies experienced as part of their work. They are rich in in-depth discussions on a wide variety of subjects on safety practices including risk management and mitigation measures.
