This symposium is organized by the International Section of the ISSA for Electricity, Gas and Water.
The industrial use of electricity has always been the driving force for our economic development. This ranges from energy supply to the social networks of modern communication, which would be inconceivable without electric current. Electric current, however, can also present hazards if it is not applied safely. New technologies are emerging rapidly and are associated with new electrical risks. To ensure that people can work safely with these technologies we need to identify the new risks, develop best practices and prevention measures and implement them.
The Symposium addresses topics where science and industry must join forces with standardization to ensure the safe generation, distribution and use of electricity.
