The Shocking Truth
* 2 Serious fires occur within hazardous areas across the world every day due to static electricity
* 5 people die in Australia every year on average due to lightning strikes
* 70% of all static electricity related serious fires and or explosions in hazardous areas are caused by inadequate and or inappropriate earthing and or bonding.

Key Note speakers and presenters, including committee members of CSELP & HAECA support SELP 2o2o because it offers attendees an opportunity to talk to industry and subject matter experts for the modest cost of admission.
CSELP has purposely kept this cost as low as possible so that as many people as possible may enjoy the event.
Similar events have cost well in excess of $1500 per person.
This event is the only time that all presenters and key note speakers are in the same place at the same time. An amazing "cost effective" opportunity to ask questions or talk about your specific project
