IOR A nnual Conf erence to focus on r efrigeran t safet y and risk assess ment requirement s


F


or its 2019 Annual conference, taking place on 12 June at Austin Court in Birmingha m, the IOR has decided to focus on refrigerant safety and


risk assessment requirement s. The conference aims to explore refrigerant


safety and the importance of risk assessment with a programme designed to leave delegates with a deeper understanding of their legal responsibilitie s, but also accountabilities and compliance requirements with regulations and procedures should an incident occur.


While refrigerant safety and risk assessment has been addressed by the IOR in the past, the industry’s latest developments have made this discipline more topical than eve r.


The move away fro m lower toxicity refrigerants such as R404A and R507 is prompting more and more cooling professionals to consider switching to either a flammable refrigerant, carbon dioxide or ammonia. Whichever route is followed a clea r understanding of the risk assessment methodology


is very importa nt.


In addition to this, written proof of a competent and a meaningful assessment is now essential to comply with the recent changes in the la ws, codes of practice and standards. The International Standard on Quality Management Systems, ISO 9001, has adopted a greater emphasis o n risk, taking the definition for ISO9000:2015 that risk is the “effect of uncertainty”. All these factors show that there’s never been a more important time to be implementing robust risk assessment processes, especially in light of recent court cases and incident investigation s.


The conference will begin with a keynote paper from Maurice Young of Maurice Young Consulting o utlining why risk assessments are needed. This will be followed by six different papers explaining ho w, if risk is not assessed at each stage, it can lead to deadly outcomes bu t, if managed properly, it will protect both people and business.


Papers will deal with various aspects o f risk


assessment including an overview of refrigerant safety and risk assessment for flam mable refrigerants. Other topics will include hazards and personal responsibili ty, point of wo rk risk assessment guidance, the challenges and requirements of working at heights, working on installed sy stems and worki ng on air condition ing systems. The full programme is available from the events page on the IOR web site.


The audience will be d rawn from all sectors of the RACHP industry, including designers, installers, end users, operator s, retailers and contractor s. Over 100 people are expected to attend the conference and the programme is designed to allow ma ximum input from delegates with chaired questi on panels and networking brea ks .


This is a highly topical issue and places are going fast, so visit ior.org.uk/events to secure your place today. Please note that the IOR is currently running an early bird rate of £85 plus VAT available to members only until 13 Ma y.
