Gas @ WWEM

New zone at Water, Wastewater & Environmental Monitoring show (WWEM 2010)

The organisers of WWEM, the world’s largest environmental monitoring event, have announced a new Gas Detection zone at the 2010 conference and exhibition, signalling coverage of the workplace environment for the first time.

Traditionally focusing on environmental monitoring within the water industry, the event will now also highlight airborne industrial hazards and risk assessment across all industries, with the participation of the Council of Gas Detection and Environmental Monitoring (CoGDEM). Hazards include accidental exposure to low oxygen levels in confined spaces and to toxic or explosive gases.
Leigh Greenham, Director of CoGDEM, said: “We are delighted to be involved with the world’s largest environmental monitoring event. Gas detection is an important part of risk assessment to help provide protection for workers in all industries, particularly in the water sector. The seminars that we will run, in conjunction with informal discussions at the exhibition stands of our members, will provide WWEM visitors with the latest help and advice on modern gas detection technology as part of a risk reduction strategy. Many of our members are leaders in the field of gas detection and their technical staff will be available to provide training on how to operate, calibrate and maintain instruments cost-effectively.”

Following the same format as previous events, with free entry for exhibition visitors, WWEM 2010 will again take place over two days at the Telford International Centre. The main Conference will be repeated on both days (10th and 11th November) and a comprehensive programme of Workshops will run alongside an Exhibition featuring all of the world's major players in water regulation, testing and monitoring.

The WWEM 2010 organisers have reported that the majority of the stands at the exhibition have already been reserved and that the remainder are being allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
