Thorne & Derrick are thrilled to announce that they will be exhibiting at the return of the Hazardex 2023 Live on the 1st March 2023.
On the back of exhibiting at HazardEx 2021 & Hazardex In The Regions, Terry and the team will be showcasing a range of products that help to improve safety, increase reliability and optimise productivity in explosive atmospheres.
We can now also confirm that Terry McDonald will be delivering a conference paper at the event. Thorne & Derrick over the years have listened closely to their customers and extensively researched the market to bring their clients fully compliant and correctly certified hazardous area solutions for the safe use in explosive atmospheres.
Terry will be speaking about the problems posed by fake products and certificates, including incorrectly certified products, that enter the market. He will look at just how big the problem is and highlight some solutions to the issue.
Safety and compliance should always come first but unfortunately there are companies that make cost and profit their priority.
There are many examples of fake goods and incorrectly certified products being sold into the explosive atmosphere industry. How big is this problem?
How can we all take our share of the responsibility to prevent this? The discussion will highlight some recent examples of fake/non-compliant products and how training and competency levels must improve throughout the supply chain to combat this problem.
