We are delighted to announce the 3rd annual Defence Safety conference (VIRTUAL/ONLINE ACCESS ONLY), taking place on the 5th and 6th October 2020.
The aim of the conference is to review the safe delivery of defence capabilities, and the parts that operational users, equipment and service delivery organisations and research and development play in defence safety. It will identify good practice to be learned from and inform the views of those who procure, provide and operate Defence equipment and services.
Last year's conference hosted over 200 attendees from 18 nations and contributions ranged from the Vice Chief of Defence Staff to Chief Executives of Industry, as well as international operational leaders and military safety experts.
The 2020 Defence Safety Conference will feature briefings from across the air, land and maritime domains, as well as from defence leaders from industry and policy makers.
As the only event dedicated to defence safety, this conference is the global meeting point for the military community.
