Security versus Safety -complementary or competing needs?
York, 5 July 2017

We hope you enjoyed the symposia and it met your expectations and find the copies of the presentations useful.

The topics of previous ISTR symposia and other events are available from this page. The presentations from these are restricted to ISTR Members and Associate Members.

Below is an overview of ISTR. More information about ISTR and how to join is available from this page.

The Institute serves safety professionals in technology and research including education, industry, government agencies and consultancy.

The aim of the Institute is to enhance the knowledge, competence and professional development of its members through networking, accreditation, knowledge exchange, workshops and symposia, communication with regulators and partnerships with other safety organisations.

Membership is open to safety professionals and Associate Membership is available to anyone whose knowledge and experience do not qualify them as Members but who can show they have a sufficient interest in the activities of ISTR.

The following presentations have been released by the authors for personal use.

Security versus Safety -complementary or competing needs?
The theme Safety versus Security -complementary or competing needs? explores the potential tension between the two. We focus on how to balance safety and security needs when designing new buildings and ensuring designers correctly understand the nuanced brief. The challenge of implementing systems for monitoring out of hours workers is discussed and our ever popular Discussion Forum (where we have an opportunity to learn from and share with each other) rounds off a busy programme.
